Hanii Y Cropped Cotton Trench
Available at: Net-a-Porter.com
Spring is just around the corner, which means that odd "not hot, but not cold" weather will be upon us before we know it. How do you cope with unpredictable weather without resorting to sad cardigans and unsightly windbreakers? This spring it's all about a super cute cropped trench coat to keep you comfortable without sacrificing style.
Why the cropped trench? The lightweight wools and cotton twills that are the hallmark of the trench coat are perfect fabrics for mild temperatures and the smart detailing is completely fashion-forward. On top of comfort and style, the self-belt that hits right at the natural waist creates an hourglass shape that flatters everyone from curvy girls to ladies with boyish figures. Wear your cropped trench with jeans and a tee for a chic weekend look or pull on your jacket over a spring dress for a just right mix of uptown class and downtown style.
Want to invest in an uber-stylish cropped trench with designer details to spare? The Hanii Y Cropped Cotton Trench is right on cue. The combination of the pleated 3/4 length sleeves and military patch details is both sweet and sassy.
Plaid is back for fall 2007, so why not snag a little plaid cropped trench to wear now and later? This super sale priced number from Juicy Couture will see you through spring when paired with tees and tanks and then do double duty come fall over a smart wool turtleneck.Juicy Couture 3/4 Sleeve Cropped Trench
