Since it was invented more than a century ago, the trench coat has never gone out of style. Instead, it has been continuously reimagined, and there are now many versions to choose from. Here's our list of things to consider that'll help you pick the perfect one to last a lifetime.
A classic trench is made from gabardine, but this season ours are constucted with a polyester exterior that provides more stretch or our proprietary Faux-Ever Leather™ for a more modern take that is still rain resistant. If you live in a particularly rainy area, opt for our Belted Moto Raincoat, made with an extra water-repellent material to ensure that you stay dry throughout any downpours.
All of our trenches are fully lined for exceptional comfort.
The trims, buttons, and fastenings mean everything on a trenchcoat. On ours, you'll notice things like durable hardware and button tab details at cuffs to denote exceptional quality.
We think outwear looks its best with a slightly relaxed feel, rather than too form fitting. It should be slightly tailored along your arms and waist but not too tight that it restricts movement. A little extra room also allows for warm layers underneath as temperatures drop. If you like to accentuate your waist, look for belted styles. If you prefer a sleeker silhouette, a single-breasted style like our Faux-Ever Leather™ Single-Breasted Coat is the right choice for you.
What To Wear With It?
When it comes to styling a trench coat, there are endless possibilities. For an edgy look, pair our Stretch Crepe Duster Trench Coat in Olive or Khaki with some oversized denim and lug sole boots. Or, to keep things classic, wear it over a crisp white button-down, leggings, and loafers. If you want to make it more fashion, drape a sweater over your shoulders––this simple styling move always adds an extra, effortless layer of depth to a look. Don't forget accessories, either! Statement earrings, knee-high boots, or a pop of color bag will help you up the style ante. However you choose to style your trench, you're sure to stay warm and chic all season long.
