18 Oct Photo Shoot Inspiration- Classic Fall Trench
I love classic style. The style that can never be called a trend because it’s truly never going to not be a trend. A crisp trench coat, in my opinion, summarizes CLASSIC.
As we turn the page into cool weather, layering here in Chicago becomes essential. I walk everywhere, so I’m constantly pulling out an umbrella or talking off a scarf. It becomes necessary to grab a jacket even with a forecast of 70 degrees and sunshine. When I start pulling out my cool weather clothes, I start with my classics.
As I pulled out my “Fall Clothing” bin and unpacked my favorite trench, I was immediately reminded of a photo shoot I recently worked. The photographer, Martine Severin, was hired by a shoe designer looking to capture an effortless, classic style. What better then a strong trench coat!?
Our first model, Vanessa with Ohlsson Agency, was styled with a striped top, jeans, and trench to show off her booties by Ria Manyari. Paired with a classic brown leather bag, she looks professional and approachable. Makeup Artist, Francely Plaza gave her glowing skin and a nude lip. For hair, we curled and set her straight long hair with a 1 1/2” barrel for shiny loose waves. Classic.
In the second look, Ashlyn with Ohlsson Agency, was styled with a white tank, denim shorts, and a contrasting black leather bag. This look gives the classic trench a more edgy, youthful look. Francely showcased her youthful glow with a natural peach lip color and highlighted her cheek bones. Her naturally curly hair was beautiful! We enhanced her curl with a 1/2” barrel, only curling the hair that fell straight. Classic, with an edge.
With such versatility, every woman should have this staple in her closet!
