I love a good trench but living in Qld with it’s warm weather there are only a couple of months that you can actually wear them.
Solution – find a sleeveless one. This way I can wear it all year round.
On a recent business trip to Sydney I was able to fit in a couple of hours of shopping in the city.
My search for the perfect sleeveless trench started at Zara; a shop that we don’t have in Brisbane. I had only been in Zara in Melbourne a few years ago and at that time hadn’t found a lot that I loved. Fingers crossed this time I would find success.
What a difference a couple of years make – this time I had to be very very strong not buy too much. So many fabulous items and the prices were extremely reasonable.
In my search through the racks I found this fabulous sleeveless trench in a lovely natural bone colour and it was only $69.95. It was really a no brainer – it was exactly what I had been looking for and less than I had expected or prepared to pay.
I have already worn this trench a couple of times, the first time with a white shirt and distressed jeans and today on a lunch date with my handsome husband I teamed it with a Sussan Fashion Curved Hem Black Tank $29.95, wet look jeans from Country Road (last season), a pair of RMK booties, ilyashoney Necklace $45.00 and Indepal Leather Tino handbag $160.00.
Unfortunately as there are only a few Zara stores in Australia and you can’t purchase online, I have found a couple of other options that can be purchased online or instore.
Target – Yours Sincerely Sleeveless Trench $99.00. Love the khaki colour of this trench, this is from Targets new Yours Sincerely range and as Target describes it “A collection with classic cuts, quality fabrics and on trend styles. Women of all ages can find something in the new range to fit their style, wardrobe and budget.”
Witchery – Sleeveless Spliced Gilet $149.99. A slightly lighter than a traditional trench but with the same lovely long lines and a beautiful nude colour that is extremely versatile.
For a cheaper version check out this one from BooHoo, its called Juliet Sleeveless Button Belted Trench and comes in 3 different colours – black, nude and rust and is currently on special for only $36.00
