Then, while outfit planning later on at home, you’re actually kind of stumped about how to wear it. That’s how I felt about this trench cape. Obviously a regular trench coat would have been much easier to style, but I liked how the cape silhouette put a unique twist on the original. It’s really not as hard as it looks to style, but rather about choosing the right pieces to pair with it. My cape is from last year, but I linked a similar new one below that’s on sale and comes in tan or navy (so pretty!)Ann Taylor trench cape, how to wear a trench cape for spring, AG Jeans Jodi crop flare, trench cape outfit, mint green handbag for springFor a statement jacket like this, I’ve found it’s usually best to keep the rest of the outfit simple and streamlined since the upper half is boxy. My favorite top to layer underneath is just a plain long-sleeve tee in a solid color, or striped for a little nautical feel. For bottoms, skinny pants are the best bet, but I do like the look of these crop flares as a nod to the current retro trend.
