Get the look: trench coat and cropped jeans

Whew, it's been a week! Mercury is in retrograde, temperatures here have been in the 80s, and I have work coming out of my ears (which I know I shouldn't complain about). Anyway, happy Friday! Let's ease into the weekend with this month's most-pinned look from my Outfit ideas for ageless style Pinterest board—it's casual, it's timeless, it's seasonless, it's perfect. You probably own all the pieces to re-create this look already, but if not, read on. 



What I love about the trench coat that this woman is wearing is that it's a midcalf length. So many trenches hit at the knee, which means your lower legs still get soaked when it's raining. I like a longer-proportioned coat in general (I think they're more elongating), and this Michael Kors trench coat does the trick at a reasonable price. 



Again, you probably already own a white tee, but if you need a refresh, you can't go wrong with a classic like this Everlane organic cotton tee, a very affordable $18, especially considering it's organic cotton. 



I have pretty much been living in straight-leg cropped jeans this year (with just a hint of stretch!) and these Levi's 501 crop jeans are my current obsession. They have a flattering high waist, a low-key light wash, and a narrow but not-tight leg, plus the price is right. 



I am generally not a fan of dad sneakers, but hers look a little more streamlined, and I think the all-white construction helps. I'd actually wear these Aetrex Carly sneakers, which look extra comfy but not too dorky. 



Of course, every perfect weekend look requires a pair of shades, and these Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses are just so classic and cool. I have a similar pair that's on repeat—they're lightweight and the shape is perfectly proportioned.

These are all staples pieces! I've been trying to find the perfect trench coat but at 5'0 it's hard to find one that isn't too big!

I'd definitely wear these pieces too! I'm the same when it comes to trainers - a lot of the time they look way too dad for my tastes xx

This is a great layered look in the fall and I love cropped jeans for fall shoes and sneaks!

i love a trench and jeans outfit, although cropped jeans are just full length jeans on me, haha! short girl problems! My fave jeans store does cropped jeans so I just buy them and don't have to spend on alterations!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

Such a great classic look! I agree with you about the length of a trench coat. I prefer longer ones for the same reason. Fingers crossed but Mercury retrograde has not been slamming me...yet! Thanks for linking with me!
