Classico.

Wearing the classics is a theme this week, yes? It was the basic-but-necessary blue oxford shirt on Tuesday, and today it’s all about your standard trench coat, cropped navy trousers, and red pumps.

A fitted trench instantly adds some polish to any look. I lean on my Banana Republic version pretty heavily come spring, but was able to break it out last week when the city was unseasonably mild for late January.

A good skinny + cropped trouser is a closet workhorse, especially when dressing for the office. You can wear it with pumps or flats, go super formal with a blouse and blazer, or a little edgy with a simple tee and a leather jacket. So many options, and the navy color here is a neutral that works all year long. Red patent pumps with a pointed toe, a striped watch, and aviators make this pretty much the most patriotic + preppy ensemble ever.
