Great Coats: Rainy Day Fashion

rain coat, talbots fashion
How many coats are in your closet? I’ve got at least six, and I’m still on the hunt. Building a coat wardrobe is an ongoing assignment in New York City. Our weather turns on a dime. So being prepared means always having good options in your closet.

This look is all centering around the bold print coat. The Geo-Square Trench from Talbots is a classic trench with a twist ($139.99).  The coat is just the thing for showers this spring. I love the length and the nickel closures. Now I am almost ready for rain!

When Talbots sent this over they also included some fabulous extras. If you are a working mom, I recommend the Crisa Exotic-Embossed Leather Low-Heel Ballet Flats ($119) it looks like a snake skin, but it’s embossed leather. It’s classy yet also very appropriate for any work setting. Pair it with the Signature Double-Weave Ankle Pants ($99) a strecthy pant that works with so much you already own.

The final touch was the Stella & Dot Sutton Necklace ($178) this multi-colored statement necklace can spruce up a white shirt or work with your bright spring sweaters.

  • I love the way the raincoat blends into the outfit. It’s like a duster!

  • Mrs_Jack_of_all_trades

    Very trendy coat.. I’ve never own a printed coat before. All of mine are plain and often boring

  • Dude Mom

    Love the jacket. The print is so fun!

  • Living in a place that has a true winter, I need to have a variety of coats. Mine are mostly in solid colors. This printed one is fun…it’s sure to make any rainy day more enjoyable ; )

  • Not Dressed As Lamb

    Nicole that raincoat is AMAZING!!! Such a gorgeous print, and even the buckles are beautiful (and unusual). I got a patterned raincoat in the autumn and I’ve worn it to death with all the rain we’ve had this winter in the UK… a great piece to have in your wardrobe! Great look 🙂

      Buckles?! I was thinking buttons and got it mixed up with nickel closures… came out as buckles!!

  • Alison Lumbatis

    Wow, gorgeous coat! This one would be perfect for spring in Texas. I love the pattern so much.

    • momtrends

      I bet you don’t need nearly as many coats! A little jealous right now as we are limping through winter.

  • Pam@over50feeling40

    Love that coat…I am looking for spring coats like this which are more for business style than weather!! You look amazing and thanks for hosting the link up!! Have a wonderful day!

    • momtrends

      Thanks Pam–I try to keep the readers happy that work in offices just like those who work in more casual settings.

  • That trench is GORGEOUS!!!

    • momtrends

      Thanks Jo-Lynne. I’m sure it will get LOTS of wear this spring.

  • I loooove this coat! I just got one in a similar color, although it’s solid. Now considering a patterned one… like I need any more trench coats! Also Talbots flat = the best.

    • momtrends

      C’mon a New Yorker can never have too many coats!

  • Cynthia

    This is such great trench coat. I love the pattern and the details. It’s definitely a coat that’s gonna make people do a double take.
