So, I’ve already spent a significant amount of time on the blog telling you all how much I love eShakti. Their pieces range from classic to retro to bohemian to modern and are quickly becoming some of my favorites in my wardrobe.
When eShakti offered to send me a sample to review, I eagerly accepted. After contemplating several dresses, I went a different direction and chose the khaki trench.

I have been wanting a khaki trench coat for quite some time, but I had accepted that finding one that would easily work with my petite curvy frame just wasn’t going to happen.
When I realized that eShakti had trench coats available, I jumped at the chance to get have a trench custom fit for me.
With sizes 0-36W available and the option to order based on your own measurements for just $7.50 more, you really can’t get the wrong fit. Also, if you’re a first time customer, customizations are FREE! They have a no-hassle return policy, and in my experience, excellent customer service. If the fit happens to be off or you’re not happy with a garment for any reason, you can return it for a refund or store credit.

On top of custom measurements, eShakti also offers custom styling options, which are free with custom sizing. Rather than choosing the classic fit and style, I decided to go for a low hip length trench with 3/4 sleeves to give this basic piece a fashion-y twist.
I am loving the result!

For today’s look, I paired my new trench with an eShakti pencil skirt and basic knit camisole. The look feels classic and chic for work, but to really make it my own, I wanted to add a bit of a messy and edgy vibe.
I added in a metallic fringe necklace and curved spike earrings to give a little attitude to this look.

A few notes on the trench: The cotton sateen is high-quality and has an excellent sheen. Most of the details are those that you expect from a classic trench. I was disappointed that the jacket isn’t lined, as this would have greatly increased the quality factor. I also wish it had pockets.
That said, I am loving this jacket as a new modern basic for my wardrobe! To customize this jacket even more, I’m considering swapping out the khaki buttons for black buttons.
