What to Wear: Cropped Trench

I love the idea of updated classics, even if it seems a little contradictory – shouldn’t classic mean it doesn’t need updating? But in any case, I fell in love with this cropped trench the moment I saw it. Perfect for the early days of fall in California, I adore the swingy, cropped cut of the coat. It’s enough to keep me warm/covered but not quite the commitment of hailing around a full trench with belt.
