5 ways to wear a trench coat

When it comes to outerwear, nothing combines form and function quite like a classic trench coat. Its versatility and timeless appeal has made it an essential fashion item that no wardrobe is complete without. Whether you own a trench coat or are in the market for one, read on to find out which trench coats we're coveting this season as well as five ways on how to style a trench coat right now.

1. Elevate an androgynous look

For a smart, yet casual nine-to-five look, a trench coat over a classic white t-shirt and high-waisted trouser combo could be your new go-to work outfit. Whether you choose full length, tapered or cropped trousers, accentuating your waist is key to owning this look like a boss. Tuck in your tee and cinch with a belt for extra definition. Pair with chunky soled boots for no-fuss, fashion-forward footwear that’ll get you where you need to be, rain, hail or shine.

2. Create a high-low mix

Strike the perfect balance of understated yet chic with a camel-coloured trench coat styled with a mix of everyday and high-end pieces. Channel Parisian style with a classic striped top paired with stylish ballet flats or swap flats for a great pair of heels. Add a signature accessory like a hat or beautiful bag to complete this classic look, perfect for weekend get-togethers.

3. Layer over a tonal outfit

Look effortlessly stylish by dressing in monochrome. Not only is it a time-saving style technique - a tonal ensemble of understated separates also ensures your trench coat is the hero of your outfit. Get this look right by combining complementary shades and textures. Think a chunky knit sweater with smooth, flowy pants. To add interest, punctuate your look with shoes or a bag in a contrasting colour.

4. Pair with denim

A trench coat is a simple way to take your favourite pair of jeans from everyday to elevated. Whether you love the ease of baggy jeans or the sleek form created by skinnies, a trench coat is a style match with any jean cut. One thing to consider is the proportions of your jeans in order to achieve the perfect outfit balance. Match baggy jeans with a fitted turtleneck (extra style points if you opt for a bright colour!) Or style skinny jeans with an oversized cashmere jumper. Finish off with white sneakers for extra street appeal.

5. Layer over a bold colour

Create an eye-catching, layered autumn look by wearing a flash of colour under a trench coat. Make a bold statement with a matching blazer and skirt in one of the season’s jewel-inspired hues or go all out by dressing in a bold, vibrant palette. Look for a mid-length skirt that peeks out just below your trench to add a pop of colour even when your trench is belted. When it comes to shoes, a great pair of ankle boots will give this look a cool edge, while a sleek pair of pointy-toe pumps will add sophistication and polish.
