Salut les filles! ♥
Today I open a new segment on La Mignonette, devoted to explore the key stylish pieces every girl should have on her closet, side by side with trendy & cutting edge garments.
My kudos go en première place for the trench coat!
From affordable high street retailers (H&M, Zara, Etam, Vero Moda, Zara, Topshop, Mango etc.), crossing the border to the big spenders stratosphere (Burberry,A.P.C.,Charles Anastase, etc.), the trench coat is ageless and a synonym of elegance and BCBG, and is also a must have for every common girl who wants to look effortlessly cool and chic.
From iconic screen legends (Casablanca, Holly Golightly, film noir heroins, Inspector Clouseau and gangster flicks), to divas (Jackie O.), to nouvelle vague ye ye girls (Françoise Hardy, Anna Karina), to a stylish and time defier looking Claudia Schiffer posing forVogue Germany, in one of the coolest editorials I've seen in a while.
Nowadays the trench coat is visible in so many different lengths and colors that the best for you to do is to keep it plain simple:a little above the knee, fitted on the shoulders and in terms of color gor for a classic beige/toffee toned.

For a retro chic look I usually opt for:
- a bouffant, adorned with a little black bow.
- bare naked legs (no pantyhose!).
- kitten heel shoes or stylish flats.
- lots of eyeliner and mascara and a nude/mate mouth.
