Hello Lovelies! Today I want to share with you my thoughts on the Check Trench that I received courtesy of Long Tall Sally. Long Tall Sally was kind enough to send me this gorgeous navy and ivory gingham trench coat from their new Spring collection. Can I just say that it was love at first sight. From the pictures online it appealed to my classic, preppy and fun nature by its looks alone. Then when I received it in the mail, and opened the package, I was so giddy because it looked even better in person. When I tried it on, it was a dream the sleeve length was amazing, the fit of the jacket was perfect and I loved the details such as the navy buttons, decorative belt cuffs at the wrist and the pockets. I like the matching belt but would have LOVED it, if it were longer, so that it could be tied at the waist. That is actually the only miss with this trench. Do you see how long the sleeves are on this trench, love it! I measured my coat and the sleeve length from the shoulder to the wrist is 28 1/2″ long. The measurement across the back from the seams is 17″ wide. The length of the trench from just below the collar to the bottom hem is almost 42″ long. As you can see in the pictures it stops just above my knees. For reference I’m wearing the U.S. size 12 and I would say it fits true to size. I have a thin knit sweater on here and I don’t feel confined at all and the buttons are not pulling. What I also love about this check trench from long Tall Sally is that it is structured but not stiff and heavy. The gingham trench itself is 100% cotton and rain proof. It is light to mid weight and fully lined with a navy polyester fabric, which makes it perfect for spring time temperatures. It comes with extra buttons, (which you can kind of see in this picture below, towards the inside bottom of the trench because I forgot to cut them off…lol). I truly adore this trench and I promise you I am not just saying that because it was given to me. It just fits perfectly, I love the quality and the stitching and you know I love me some gingham! I would give this trench 4 out of 5 stars, with the one star reduction being that the belt is too short to tie, that would be all. I decided to pair my new navy and white Long Tall Sally check trench with bright pink, but I see myself pairing it with kelly green, purple, red and orange in the near future as well. Today I dressed it up in a professional manner with pumps. trousers and a sweater, I think this trench will be just as lovely dressed down with jeans and my navy hunter wellingtons. I will try pairing it with a skirt and a mini-dress as well. So if you were on the fence about this check trench from Long Tall Sally, hopefully I’ve answered some of your questions.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
