A couple weeks ago, I stumbled upon an eyelet trench in my local Anthropologie store. It was on sale for $89.95 (orig. $168) at that time. I wasn’t on the market for a new trench, but I decided to try it on because there was something intriguing about an eyelet trench.
The coat’s white embroidered eyelet pops over a chambray lining. Other details like the fit-and-flare silhouette and subtle tier at the bottom take this coat to serious style heights. I’m glad I tried it on and got to appreciate the full beauty of the coat because the online pictures don’t do it justice.
Believe it or not, though, I left the store without the coat the first time because there were so many in stock (and it didn’t appear to be popular), so I expected the price to fall more. That turned out to be a good move because a couple of weeks later, the coat was marked down further to $49.95.
|I’m wearing a size 6. I first tried a size 4, but the sleeves were too tight.|
|Belt is reversible. One side has the white eyelet cutout over chambray and the other
a chambray eyelet cutout over white.
|The coat also features a removable ‘belt’ detail around the neck. On a symbolic level,
wearing a belt around the neck might be odd, but the contrast it adds is pretty.
