The trench













When it comes to trench coats there are two types I really like. First one is the casual, short, cotton trench and the other one is the long, more elegant version. Although the short trench can sometimes look too simple or obvious (we all know the feeling of going out on a rainy day and seeing all the girls wearing this exact coat), the truth is, it's so much easier to wear. You don't have to worry about matching it with the rest of your outfit, because it goes well with almost anything, and it will never get in your way. Long trench, on the other hand, can look weird with some clothes and may touch the floor while you are sitting or if you hang it on a chair so you always have to think about the way you are sitting or where you're hanging your coat. And let's face it, that can be exhausting. Still, I love the way the long trench looks. It's so elegant and chic and you can do wonderful things with it. I like to channel a dose of Parisian vibe (or at least what seems to me like a Parisian vibe) with striped clothes and comfortable flats. You can also wear it with sneakers in the spirit of the new sportswear trend or with high waisted pants and knee high boots. Like I always say, I don't like fashion rules, but try to avoid wearing it with jeans that are too baggy or you may end up with a weird looking silhouette. Also, too many layers under the long trench is not a good idea, if the coat loses its shape the whole outfit looks unbalanced. At the end, it's all about trying it out. Try the outfit first to see what goes well with your trench coat and what doesn't.


Kada se radi o trenču (ili jednostavnije rečeno kišnom mantilu) postoje dve vrste koje zaista volim. Prvi je opušteni, kratki, pamučni trenč, a drugi je njegova duža, elegantnija verzija. Iako kratki mantil ponekada može da izgleda previše jednostavno ili kao očigledan izbor (svi znamo onaj momenat kada u toku kišnog dana izađemo na ulicu a sve devojke nose upravo ovakav mantil), istina je da se on mnogo lakše ''nosi''. Ne morate toliko da brinete o njegovom uklapanju sa ostalom odećom, zato što se slaže uz skoro sve i nikada vam neće smetati. Dugi mantil, sa druge strane, može da izgleda čudno sa nekom odećom i da dodiruje pod dok sedite ili ako ga okačite na stolicu pa stalno morate da razmišljate o tome kako sedite ili gde ste okačili mantil. A to može da bude naporno. Ipak, obožavam kako dugi trenč izgleda. Toliko je elegantan i šik i možete divno da ga ukombinujete. Ja volim da kanališem dozu pariskog duha (ili ono što meni deluje kao pariski duh) uz pomoć prugaste odeće i udobnih ravnih cipela. Takođe, možete da nosite ovu vrstu trenča sa patikama u skladu sa novim trendom nošenja sportske odeće ili sa pantalonama visokog struka i čižmama do kolena. Kao što uvek spominjem, ja ne volim modna pravila, ali pokušajte da izbegnete nošenje dugog mantila sa farmerkama koje su previše vrećaste, završićete sa siluetom koja izgleda čudno. Takođe, previše slojeva ispod dugog trenča nije dobra ideja, mantil će izgubiti svoj oblik pa će ceo izgled biti neusklađen. I na kraju, stvar se uvek svodi na isprobavanje. Prvo probajte svaku kombinaciju da biste videli šta ide dobro sa vašim trenčom, a šta ne.
