#OOTD The Sleeveless Trench

#OOTD The Sleeveless Trench [three_fourth]

Nothing exudes polish and femininity quite like a well fitted coat. Sadly, given Bombay’s perennially sunny weather, pounding pavements in your trench isn’t always the most practical option.

Luckily, Phoebe Philo played fairy godmother and whipped up theΒ sleeveless trenchΒ – a Bombay girl’s answer to working utilitarian glamour with ease.

Light as a feather, perfect for the weather and impossibly chic, I’ll be using mine to amp up easy separates and tone down statement shockers for seasons to come.

What’s your favourite all-season transition piece? Share it with me in the comments section.

Bisou bisou,

    I love the trench coats for the instant polish and the versatile usage! And someone really thought outside the box to create the sleeveless ones!! You styled it very well too.
    BTW, love those Missoni-esque shoes!! So pretty.

    Perennial pieces?

    Scarves. Knotted to my bag in the summer, tied around my neck in the winter and draped over one shoulder or both in all weather.

    I’m not much on sleeveless jackets but the look really suits you. And like everyone else, love the heels!

    Hey, Anushka. I stumbled upon your blog recently and I’m in love! I love your style and how you carry yourself. Going through your blog I fell in love with high-waisted skirts. You look lovely and adorable in all your posts. Now I’ve also been inspired to go and shop from Hill Road and Colaba. Here’s another admirer and follower you’ve got:) Would be looking forward to read more of your posts:D
