Fade To Pink

by Aaron Aragonez

In fashion, as in life, stepping outside of your comfort zone is always a good thing. Not that you should overhaul your entire wardrobe for a Lady Gaga-esque look—though she rocks it!—rather, I urge you to implement one untried trend into your closet at a time, i.e. an avant-garde pair of shoes, a fresh denim silhouette or, in today’s case, an eye-catching ombré trench coat!

That’s right, my call of action du jour is to swap out your neutral summer jacket for one that is blossom-ly bright. Plucked directly from the Dries Van Noten runway, this pink-to-purple trench is exactly what I have in mind. The knee-length profile, wide lapels and belted waistline will flatter any shape. while the flirty hue will perk up an outfit of muted separates. Love it! Channel your own Dries Van Noten-inspired ensemble by rocking a colorful coat, metallic belt, oversized sunnies and Mary Janes! xoRZ
