Women of Chicago, it's time to take a stand. We're not going to sit idly by and let the weather ruin one of our favorite seasons. Yes, we’re taking matters into our own hands. The first step? Rocking a gorgeous, floral trench all day, every day. Afraid of repetition? No problem. We've styled the staple with three showstopping outfits guaranteed to bring a little sunshine to your wardrobe. Warm weather not included.
It may not be Memorial Day yet, but we're all about eschewing traditional fashion rules. Embrace the season's lighter colors from head to toe — but choose supple leather accessories to balance out your look. A studded ring will add some edge to this otherwise overly sweet outfit.

Over A Dress
Pair your belted trench with a sleek sheath — the form-fitting shape will balance out the wider cut of the coat. Keep the dress shade neutral, but have some fun with a statement necklace and a pop of color on your lips.
