Perfect Pairing: Trench Coats and the Lauren Sandal

“I’ll look for any excuse to wear a coat. Since it's officially transitional dressing season, the perfect way to move from summer to fall is to keep the sandals and add a trench. The beauty of the Lauren is that it works for nearly every occasion and inevitably pulls together a look. Below are some ideas depending on which part of the globe you'll be out and about in.”

If I had a party in London—or many—this is all I would ever want to wear. Suede shoes and bags make everything look more chic. The Lauren in black suede is the perfect counterpart to a diaphanous tulle dress and oversized leopard coat. The low heel and matte texture balance the proportions and give it an elevated evening look.

The beauty of living in Los Angeles is that there’s no shame in wearing color, ever. The patent leather Lauren in blush hits all the right notes for pulling together an autumn look in a city that is nearly always 72F and sunny. Dress around it with varying degrees of pink, and top it off with a thin cotton trench coat.

Neutrals, layers and classic pieces don't have to be basic. Mixing shades of grey, navy and olive in varying textures gives depth to the layering that is so necessary as New York starts flirting with colder temperatures.
