Did I say functional? I meant simply gorgeous.
The ever classic trench made sheer. In lost practicality it gains the superfluous quality that is essential to fashion. The trench, by 3.1 Phillip Lim, also comes in ecru... One day, the other night. A girl cannot have too many sheer trench coats this Spring. If someone put a knife to my throat I suppose I would choose the ecru. Mostly because I would appear naked- with ruffles!
It's really those ruffles that kill me. Business in the front, party in the back? Three-tiered ruffles add the detail that elevates the piece into something unique. So unexpected, yet any unruffled trench would pale in comparison. Thank you, Phillip, for your simple alteration that will forever feminize the trench.
