The Trench Dress

The trench coat was developed as an alternative to the heavy serge greatcoats worn by British and French soldiers in the First World War. Thomas Burberry, the inventor of gabardine fabric, submitted a design for an army officer's raincoat to the United Kingdom War Office in 1901 and it became an optional dress item in the British Army. The trench coat was not only resistant to extreme wet weathers, it has also become a timeless classic.

Summer doesn't mean style has to be sacrificed. I was elated when Dressabelle brought in this trench coat inspired dress - breathable, sleeveless, pockets for your hands like how you would slot them in the winter. This dress has all the elements of the classic trench yet it's realistic be worn in Singapore. 

No one can deny that cream is an universally flattering colour for all skin tones. Thomas Burberry must be a genius.

Added a sun hat just for fun. Missing a magnifying glass that'll totally make me look like the inspector in Pink Panther.
