The Lust List: April Showers, Part 1

Not to take rain on your parade, but, I tend to equate spring on the East Coast with rain.  Having lived in Florida, North Carolina and D.C., I have come to the conclusion it rains, a lot, February through May.  As such, I have worked out some necessary essentials to remain fashionable despite the downpour.

The number one spring essential: the trench. Perfect for rain or shine, the trench is light-weight, making it perfect for spring. Requirements for the perfect trench: khaki/neutral in color (it goes with everything), long enough to go over skirts and dresses (short ones will hit at an awkward spot), belted (to accentuate the waist), and a durable, quality material (you want your trench to look classy and lasting, not cheap and trendy).

 And, the wild card: Anthropologie‘s Two Paths Trench updates the traditional trench by adding tiers.  ($188, Anthropologie).
