Trench coats always make me feel like a combination private eye and big time reporter. I like to wear them when I’m covering stories to feel extra professional. This Banana Republic trench was a Christmas gift from a friend and it holds up surprisingly well in the snow, it has a thick removable lining for cooler days. I paired it with my favorite plaid blanket scarf for some festive color and thigh-high boots for a little edge. The textural combination of the cotton trench, flannel scarf, and leather boots makes for a visually dynamic look, that also keeps the snow off.
