Womens Trench Coats

"A Classic Wardrobe Staple"


Womens trench coats are chic, feminine and timeless. I especially like the waist belt because it defines and creates a waist on any body figure.

The black trench coat is a perfect all-arounder for every season and occasion, while a beige trench gives a subtle air of Spring. For a pop of color you can try something bright such as a red, blue or purple.

There's no doubt that trench coats can make you feel very sleek, and if you choose the black one you'll instantly look 10 pounds slimmer! I love how versatile they are and that they give that extra polished finish to any outfit.

How to Buy Womens Trench Coats

Choose the right hemline

Right above the knee or shorter is the perfect length for most body figures. Going longer ups the chances of dragging down your frame. The longer trench looks more classy but a thigh length is a great way to showcase curves and a pair of great jeans.

If you're petite then I suggest you to go shorter or at least add an extra inch to your footwear if you decide to wear the longer style.

Get the right fit

Never skip this step when buying womens trench coats. You want sleeves that won't eat up your hands and a size that won't create a hunch back. A coat that won't restrict your back or arms when moving your body. Learn how to take body measurements to ensure a perfect fit.

If you really, really love and want a trench coat but discover that the size is a little different from what you should buy then commit yourself to having it altered at your local tailor!

Have fun with your coat

The trench coat is very classy and shouldn't only be restricted to dress pants and shift dresses. Wear it as a pair of your everyday daily wear - pair it with skinny jeans, short skirts and dresses. Change the look and feel of it with trendy ankle booties or fashion pumps.

You can also swap up the pants with a skirt or shorts along with hosiery such as opaque or lace tights for a more up-to-date outfit!

    Tip: Try wrapping a wide or skinny belt around the waist for a modern look.

Experiment with different trench styles

If you've already secured the basic one's like the beige or black trench coat and wish to expand your collection even more then try cropped sleeves which you can layer with your knit sweater for a fun and chic look. Be on the look out for various collar and hem shapes.
