Summer Trench Dress

You get two looks for the price of one with this trench dress from White House Black Market. Here I’m wearing it as a summer work outfit, but it can also be a layering vest over other items.

Recently before I purchase anything, I’ve been asking myself three questions to help me decide if something is a good buy. They are:

  1. Is this item seasonless?
  2. Can this item be worn at least once a week in my normal daily life?
  3. Will I be likely to wear this item in a few years?

This dress fulfilled all the criteria and I’m excited to wear it into fall and winter. I plan on sporting it with turtlenecks, cardigans, tights, and boots when the weather finally changes in a few months.

Do you have any strategies for smart shopping? Let me know in the comments!
