Versatility at its best

Trench coats are very popular for this spring and summer. Elizabeth and James has created a trench coat dress that can be worn three ways. Wear it as a trench coat with killer pumps, as a cropped jacket with jeans, and finally, a sleeveless dress with sandals. How cool is that? I think it's a very clever idea; people are always trying to reinvent ways of wearing a piece they love. The genius of having three looks from one piece is that it gives you more options. For the woman who wants to go from day to night, styling and tweaking your outfit can be made effortless. Also, you do feel like you're getting more bang for your buck. This Elizabeth and James trench is ideal for a woman always on the go. I believe that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the creative designers of this best-selling label, have a very clear grasp on modern-day fashion. Their client is someone who is stylish and fun, but has a relaxed sense of style. She is detail-oriented but not overly fussy about how she wears her clothes. She is cool without trying too hard.
