After a couple of spring fashion purchases (boots and sweater), I decided to take a step back. New in collections are overwhelming, there's so much stuff I suddently feel that I want, my wishlist folder on my laptop grows with numerous downloaded pictures.
One thing's for sure though, I need a new trench.
My Zara, acquired a couple of years ago is falling apart at the seams so it will have to be replaced. It's one of the items I use up the most, worn both in spring and fall, to work and on week-ends.
I'm not sure what my budget will be, certainly about the average Uniqlo - Zara outerwear price tag. The most I could eventually spend on would eventually be the Comptoir des Cotonniers (here), the feedback on their trench has been steadily positive over the years.
While I'm figuring out budget and if I'm going for the usual classic classic knee length and beige color, I also spotted the new trend for trench coats featuring a longer length and a more fluid fabric. It definitely also has an elegant cachet and adds a certain softness making both outfits very catchy.
