Resort/Summer Style: Trenches and Shorts

7/08/2009 04:11:00 PM Posted by Christina

I remember, back in my college days, with all of the countless events, house parties and campus wanderings, school style consisted of a favorite piece--most times,worn with pretty much anything and everything.

For most, it was a monogrammed sweatshirt--for me, it was my cropped, red trench (at left.) I wore it with everything from shorts to linen pants. From day to night. It just worked. And I refused to let it go.

Well unfortunately, one day I did. And as I type and kick myself, I remembered my little red trench, like an A in my hardest class, cherished and never forgotten.

The 2010 resort collections forced that memory, causing me to vow never to throw away my favorite piece, because I will one day be able to use it again.

So Alexander Wang and Philip Lim have reinvented the trench look for spring/summer of next year, in an effortlessly chic way, of course....
