How to look Super Chic in A Trench Coat

1 of 8

For years, style editors have pointed out that French women, with their very distinct and classic style, have elevated the trench coat to its never-ending chic status. Trench coats have become iconic among French women, rivaling berets and striped boat-neck shirts and a Burberry trench not only speaks to one’s good taste, but signals its wearer’s good sense.


 It has more or less never gone out of style, making it the most practical fashion investment one could make.

The variety of trench coats mainly lies beneath their lengths, some innovative strokes on the lapels and at the hems, as well as the shades. Thanks to that, nowadays every single woman can easily find her ideal trench coat that will match both her body shape and complexion.

You can accessorise the trench coat with tonal gloves that could be doubly elegant when finished off with a fedora or homburg hat. Handbags and shoulder bags will look equally cool whether matched with a short, medium length or long trench. A classic watch will finish off any look.

Short trenches are recommended to wear with high-heeled knee-high boots, while ankle boots should be avoided as they may visually shorten the legs.
