WIW: Sleeveless Trench & Snow Leopard

Hi Ladies,

Do you find you enjoy a garment, wear it frequently, rest it for a while and then start again with it? I do. And my sleeveless trench is experiencing the love at the moment.

I am wearing it again today over skinny black jeans, zebra blouse and newish snow leopard flats. I bought the flats in July with birthday money but the winter weather wasn't ideal for them so they have been patiently waiting for Spring to make their debut.

I wore this to see my MIL and have lunch with DH but have now changed into boots and a knit cardigan to combat the sudden change in our weather today :(

Thanks for looking, and your comments, suggestions etc, much appreciated.

xxx Deborah

    I love the new(ish) flats and you have really made me see sleeveless trenches differently - you look great!

    Great outfit-that sleeveless trench is making it all. Love the flats also.:-)

    The trench is great belted, very slimming. It creates a lovely column of black, and showcases the new shoes.
    I find that this forum, magazines etc. often remind me of something I haven't worn for ages, that I can wear in new ways. Love that!

    Deb you rock:)
    You know the outfits I love , I used to hardly wear them, except for jackets, cardigans which I wear all the time :)
    I am strange :P

    I like the pattern mixing!

    Lovely, the leopard print bookends your lovely bob and ties in to your black outfit beautifully.

    Deborah that is a fantastic outfit. I love the shape of the trench on you and the hits of animal print really work so well.

    The trench is a really great piece, I love seeing how you are re-styling it!

    Flats are very cute!

    Lovely! Sorry to hear that the flats have to wait a little longer yet.

    I love the zebra with the snow leopard. Great outfit.

    Those shoes are excellent!

    Between this and a photo I saw the other day on a fashion blog, I'm almost wanting to find an old trench coat and cut the sleeves off! Looks fantastic on you.

    Love those new shoes :-) and they are perfect with the outfit!

    I'm guilty of wearing something to death then being verrry tired of it because of that (I THINK because of that) :-\ Sometimes it justs needs a rest, but other times I'm done with it. I wonder if I wore it so much because I really loved it, or because it was new and different, or because I'm uncreative and reusing it was easy. . .

    The sleeveless trench looks great! It's not an item I would think of owning, but seeing it on you makes me start thinking of possibilities within my own wardrobe.

  • Angie replied 11 years ago


    Yes! I can leave an item for an entire year or two and then fall in love with it all over again :)
