How To Wear The Trench Coat

Just like a dependable best friend you call on during a crisis, you also need a wardrobe item that receives the award for ‘Most Dependable’: the trench. While other wardrobe items may be more spontaneous or exclusive, the trench coat remains a closet cornerstone that always feels current. So how do you wear it? It can be done in manner of ways, making it not only dependable, but also really versatile.

Heading out for the night and want to show off your dress while still highlighting your figure? Be sure to purchase a style with a figure-hugging belted waist. Leave it unbuttoned to reveal glimpses of your feminine frock, perfect for a first date – and it’s guaranteed to impress and leave him wanting more without being too revealing.

If you are looking to incorporate the trench into your daily business life, then you have made the right decision. It’s the perfect throw-on when you’re dashing into the city for a meeting – pair a classic cut with a knee-length corporate dress or black skinny jeans and a crisp white shirt. The trench means business whilst being adaptable to your entire corporate wardrobe.

Dress it up, dress it down. The structure of a trench coat makes it always look a touch formal, so when you’re feeling sluggish on the weekend and just want to throw on a pair of old jeans and a t-shirt, an outfit that may look sloppy suddenly looks fashionable.

If you’re in the market for your first trench, it’s safe to go with the traditional khaki colouring that falls just past the waistline. We enjoy this look as it brings a feminine edge to your winter look with its flattering fit and epaulettes.
