Hold The Trenches | 5 Pieces To Instantly Sophisticate Your Outfit

Spring is all about transitioning from Winter to Spring. You already knew that, though. I’m just refreshing your memory. Usually when seasons are changing, layering has been proven to be extremely valuable. Although, the weather warming up tends to confuse people with the layering act. Most days are warming up, but every once in awhile there’s a cold spike. Instead of bulking up and keeping warm, Spring layering has changed the game to help amp up the sophistication of your look. Who doesn’t want to attempt to look like a classy lady every once in awhile? To help keep you in line (or at least attempt to help), I’ve put together a list of guidelines that is sure to elevate your look. It’s completely full proof! Without further ado, I preset my top five pieces to instantly sophisticate your outfit.

TRENCH COATS

I know you’ve seen these jackets everywhere. With it’s structured but relaxed silhouette, it’s no surprise everyone is getting on this train. It screams sophistication without even trying. The classic, tan, trench coat tends to be the favorite, because of it’s versatility. Their light fabrics have proven to be the go-to jacket for those chillier days. With that being said, I wanted to pull in a twist. Instead of rocking a full trench coat, maybe a sleeveless trench coat would be more suitable for those warmer days. I found this beauty of a trench coat on Haute Look and it’s from the brand BLVD. Regardless, trench coats in general sophisticate a look no matter the season.

STRIPED BLOUSES

The stripe trend has been killing it this Spring. Again, this trend alone can transform you into a classy lady. From gingham to nautical inspired stripes, they all bring out a unique level of sophistication. The great thing about this trend, is that there are millions of styles to suit everyone’s needs. Whether you are a crop top girl or an embroidery fan, this trend is incorporated into almost every brand’s inventory. I picked up this striped blouse from Zara, and it’s still available! I would definitely snag it while you can, if you are interested.

WHITE PANTS

This piece is a bit self-explanatory. With Spring in full swing and Summer right around the corner, white pants are the perfect way to go. Because of their crisp and clean presentation, I can’t help but feel more sophisticated. Plus, they go with everything and look a bit more dressed up than a classic pair of jeans. It’s the simple tweaks that really make a difference.

RED LIPSTICK

Nothing says classy quite like a red lip. When I wear a red lipstick, it always heightens my confidence level. You can’t help but feel so powerful and sophisticated when you wear a red lip. Although, this Spring and Summer is all about the orangey twist. With that warmer undertone, it really will bring out the golden, tan colors in your skin. I always like to wear it with a bronzed, no-makeup-makeup look. Even Kathleen Lights agrees with me! When it doubt, spice it up!

COMFY HEELS

When you feel confident, nothing can stop you. I always feel that you can’t be sophisticated without the attitude to back it up. With that being said, a comfy pair of heels always gives me that final boost of confidence to take on the world. I always go for a block heel or a pair of Sofft (the brand not warm and fuzzy, haha) heels. I’m not the most graceful lady in heels, so any help I can get is greatly appreciated. It’s not about the height of the heel, but the power in the step.

    I couldn’t agree more – adding a trench coat as a layering piece adds a sophisticated finish to the outfit. A good pair of heels can do that as well, like you said!

    I totally agree with all five pieces! I love a good sleeveless long vest and this one is super chic. I am in love with that embroidered top with the red pop of color. Oh and I love your hair here 🙂

    I’ve got to admit that I’ve never thought to try a sleeveless trench like this one, but you pull it off! My favorite part of the look is definitely that top and those heels. I am all for a comfy pair of shoes!

    This look is summer perfection! The white pants and stripes blouse just go o perfectly together. I’m kind of obsessed. I’ve never thought of trenchcoats for summer but it totally works!

    Yes, yes and yes to trench coats this time of year when the weather is unpredictable. Combine that with stripes and you’ve got the perfect sophisticated look to keep you warm if needed and easily transitioned into a outfit for warmer weather by removing the trench!
