We're inching towards cooler temps here in the Southeast, so I thought it's time to another wearing now, later and after post, this time featuring the sleeveless trench dress.
Now granted when I started seeing sleeveless trenches take off last fall, I had a bit of a Why? moment. Like, if you wanted to wear a trench coat, don't you want your arms to be covered so you can actually stay warm/dry? What is up with some sort of long half jacket?
But then retailers started making the look a little softer and calling it a trench dress and it was like some cartoon balloon went up over my head and a light bulb danced around in it. Because suddenly, hello layering possibilities.
