What is a Trench Coat?

A ladies trench coat is classic clothing item that should have a presence in every women’s wardrobe. They’re essentially longer coats that can be made from a range of materials, including leather or cotton. In some cases, they can also be waterproof, making them an excellent investment for those later, colder seasons. They can come in small or large designs, and can be worked into any outfit to suit any occasion.

How to Wear a Women’s Trench Coat

Trench coats for women are versatile and can be worn with a range of other items of clothing. Here is a quick guide on how to style your new trench coat to stand out from the crowd and keep in the trends.

Layer Up

Although trench coats are excellent for all seasons, they can be particularly useful when those colder winter months start approaching. This is because you can create an ideal style through expertly layering your trench coat along with other items of clothing. Partnering your women’s trench coat with a cardigan or pullover hoodie can create an everyday casual feel. Alternatively, combining the trench coat with a bomberor jacket can make for a fashionable, edgy look, if that’s what you’re after.

If you get too warm when wearing your trench coat, an up and coming trend involves wearing the trench coat over your shoulders. This can make for a great alternative you feel it will complete your look, but it’s too hot to wear as a full-bodied item.

Use it to Add a Splash a Colour

Who ever said trench coats had to be bland and boring? Why not use a ladies trench coat as a way to boost the colours in your outfit, swapping out that old black trench coat for something with a bit more ‘pop’. A current trend in the world of trench coats involves utilising various pastel colours. There are a range of colours you could opt for but going for a classic blue or pink can never fail.

As for the rest of the outfit, keep it simple. Pairing a colourful trench coat with some simple blue or black jeans will work perfectly.

Add a New Dynamic to Your Formal Wear

If you’ve got a formal occasion coming up, putting on a trench coat might work wonders for your outfit. Trench coats are becoming a staple for formal outfits, particularly suits. If you’re wearing a suit, experiment by adding a trench coat as an additional layer. Sometimes, in this context, a short women’s trench coat can be more beneficial when compared to a long women’s trench coat, so this is something to consider when creating this style.

Spruce Up Your Evening Look

If you’re going out for the evening, matching up your outfit with a trench coat is an excellent choice. This works especially well if you’re wearing a sequin dress or a gown, and adds a unique twist that won’t go unnoticed when you’re out in town.

History of the Trench Coat

Despite being a fashion staple that gets a lot of intention, the trench coat actually used to be in heavy use during the days of WWI. Back then, they were less of a fashion statement and more of a military requirement for WWI soldiers battling at the frontlines. Burberry was the first company to issue trench coats, and they were used to replace the massive overcoats being worn by British soldiers in the trenches that soaked up water and restricted movement. Trench coats were lightweight and repelled water, making them a superior choice for soldiers during the war.

Following the Wars, trench coats re-entered circulation after appearing in pop culture and movies. They were worn by investigators and gangsters, giving them a smart and powerful association. Women’s trench coats jumped onto the scene following the classic movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, and from there, the trench coat fashion flourished.
