HOLIDAY BASICS | The Bright And Bold Trench
Shoot Location: CASCAIS, Portugal
THE BRIGHT AND BOLD TRENCH – The last thing you want on your summer getaway is the weather turning on you; unless you are having an Alpine getaway of course! For us sun-chasers, the perfect vacay promises a good healthy tan, sea-side lounging, salty ocean air etc. But yes, bad things do happen to good vacays, which is why you should always have a stylish contingency plan just in case the chilly breeze comes for you. This is where the light and vibrant trench coat comes in. The weather may not fail you as such, but evenings can get a bit cool even in the sunniest of sunny destinations, such as our recent trip to Cascais in Portugal, which you can read about here. Lucky for me, I had my bright and bold trench coat to the rescue. I mean, a place like Cascais is colourful and lively, so there’s no need to cramp that ambience with some depressing normcore garb, right? RIGHT! This bright green trench, with a contrasting grayscale stripe was the perfect item for a lazy breezy day. I just put on some black leggings and still managed to look well put together (and all the mamas say AMEN!) The trick with items such as this is to let it shine, unless you are feeling a bit extra, which I wasn’t on this particular day. Lazy hair days have somewhat become the norm for me, which explains the bright silk scarf and matching sunglasses. As for those cute Vogue shoes, MAJOR! My look had many elements of green even though the coat remained the star! Most definitely the perfect and easy look for a chilly day in Cascais, or for St Patrick’s day… whichever one comes first for you LOL! I hope you like it. As for my little bunny bear, we went all pink and yellow in cute contrasting textures just for fun, and she is working it! Hmmm, that street style swag! Well, now that you have seen how we roll in Cascais, how about strolling the beach promenades of Cascais through this much detailed post here -> The Perfect Portuguese Holiday CASCAIS.
Below are some pretty trench coats to brighten up your next vacay!
