Mackin’ On Mackage’s Trench Coats
Mother Nature is playing games on us East Coasters. Yesterday felt like the much-delayed beginning of summer, the kind of day for strolls in the park, runs to the Mister Softee truck, outdoor b-ball games… It was just heavenly. And then today, we were once again subjected to cold, dreary weather, with the rain pouring down in buckets. The lesson here: spring weather is beyond erratic, so don't go storing ALL of your coats away just yet.
During this transitional period, you'll need a jaunty trench to keep you warm and to protect you from any April Showers (and if the past few days have been any indication, we can expect quite a few of those!), and Mackage offers quite a few saucy options, such as the black "Jules" piece pictured above.
I love the flirty flounced skirt, the wide leather corset belt (which will make your waist look itty-bitty), the 3/4 length sleeves and the glossy round buttons along the front and along the coat's lapels. There's just such a coquettish Holly Golightly meets Jacques Clouseau meets Beyoncé in her "Ring the Alarm" video.
Who said you had to resort to unseemly Wellington boots and Paddington Bear-esque jackets during rainy days?
