Cropped Trench Coat, Mint and Polka Dots

Happy April 1st!  I’ve been anxiously waiting to post this outfit because it’s one of my favorites!  White jeans, mint, polka dots with a cropped trench coat is my ideal Spring outfit. I posted a sneak peek on Instagram a couple weeks ago so make sure to follow me there!

The color of this Forever 21 cropped trench coat is just the right shade (not too light or dark).  It has all the traditional elements that I like: shoulder epaulets, belted cuffs and back venting.  Unfortunately, it’s partially lined (only the sleeves) but what do you expect for the price?  The material is a cotton and polyester blend.  It definitely needs a good steaming when you first get it (very wrinkly).  The best part is, it has functional pockets!  Yay!  They are sewn shut so be sure to free them.

The fit of the coat is boxy but doable.  The upside is that it leaves you a lot of room to layer.  One of the biggest issues I have when it comes to coats are the sleeves.  They are so expensive to tailor and I prefer not to spend money altering F21 pieces.  I have short arms so I was thrilled when the sleeves actually fit!  If you have longer arms, the sleeves will be 3/4″ long.  To combat the wide sleeves, I adjusted the buckle to the last hole.  See it on What Jess Wore.

  1. I adore this outfit Annie! It’s so perfect for spring with the polka dots and mint collared shirt. Best of all, I love that this F21 trench worked out for the both of us. <3

    P.S. There should be an instagram account for 'ihavethisthingwithwalls'. 😉 That tile backdrop is on point.

  2. This is why I love reading fashion blogs: because I probably wouldn’t have put mint & navy polka dots together off the top of my head. Makes me want to add a polka dot blouse to my wardrobe. Thanks for the inspiration. ^_^
