We all have it in our closets: the emotional piece. That one piece we would add to our „3 things I’d take to a lonely Island“-list in a heartbeat. Sometimes we just don’t know it exists and what emotional value it has to us. I took me a while to figure out why a Trenchcoat (along with the Jensens and little Lulu) is such an emotional teddy bear for me. Came up with 3 theories:

Theory No 1
It’s because of my sensational and very successful column about transitional pieces (aka Trenchcoats and Biker Jackets) that I wrote for our local newspaper back in my teenage years. Within a few seconds, or should I say copies, I became the star of our small and idyllic village. Everyone was talking about between-seasons jackets and that gave the only boutique in town a very good sale rate. However, that changed my relationship with trenchcoats forever…

Theory No 2
A Trenchcoat gives me a superhero feeling when I’m stomping down the escalator with that flowing fabric behind me. It feels like those lingerie fashionshows where the Giseles and Karlies are schlepping their lace trains along the runway. Looks odd (I mean they are half naked but dragging tons of fabric behind them) but also hot and powerful. Not to self: girl, you’ve got some wild associations from time to time…

Theory No 3
Suddenly wool coats are banned, waists are „back in stock“ (bye layers, hello figure) and the words airy, sun-kissed and glowy skin return to our vocabulary. We are happily reunited with our trenchcoat, right after we’ve poked our tongues at the chunky knits, and can’t stop wearing it ever since. This piece is just a certain sign that it is finally spring and oh boy that feeling is nothing but priceless!

So let’s celebrate spring and go get trenchin’. But before I need to know: What would be your emotional piece?

Du schreibst so schön :)

Mein emotional Piece? Sehr schwere Frage, aber ich glaub ein einfacher schwarzer Rock… hab den schon so lange und zieh ihn immer noch gerne an… und er birgt Erinnerungen an meinen Monat in NY in 2013… Glaub bei mir machen’s die Erinnerungen die ich mit Kleidern verbinde aus.

LG aus Brüssel,

This trench coat is gorgeous, I love the colour, a chic alternative to the classic neutral colour. Beautiful post Carola :)

Take care and have a lovely week,

Amazing Look. Trenchcoats are worth an investment.
My emotional piece are my “Erika” sunglasses I bought at Henri Bendel in NYC.

Einfach, lässig und doch zeitlos elegant! Der Trench ist ein Traum. Eigentlich ist aber die Tasche mein Favorit. :)
