How to style a trench coat

How to style a trench coat? Like seriously I am blogging about trench coats when summer is right around the corner? But as my fellow Brits know, we never complacent when it comes to the weather. The unpredictability of the British weather leaves nothing to be desired hence why this topic is still relevant. I was just in Bucharest where I expected the weather to be everything awesome and then it rained. 🙄🙄. Not something I was expecting but it did and glad I took my leather jacket just in case when I returned the weather was cold.

how-to style a trench coat

I am someone who loves to share my outfit ideas that I have mostly done trial and error on. Whilst I haven’t owned a trench coat in forever I know I am in need of one. Learning how to style a trench coat is a must for every fashionable you regardless of your style.
The weather has been mostly warm and promising us that summer will be one for the history books. This is why I felt some nice night wasted shorts and crop top would be perfect outfit to match the weather. You don’t have to pair with a crop top you could always opt for tank tops. Another alternative could you the wearing a shorts (normal) with a flared and colourful top. Because the British summers are not always warm, you can complete the outfit with a trench coat. There are many varieties on trench coats and since it’s much warmer, a spring or summer trench would do.
Trying to maintain the simplistic feel of the outfit I use minimal jewellery. The idea is not to draw attention away from the outfit itself. And I don’t know about you but during summer I don’t always like to wearing jewelry, I take it off. Any jewelry that might cause me to sweat is not something I go for but will embrace Aztec pieces.
And there you have it, that’s how I style a trench coat, what’s your style?

    I love wearing trench coats as they’re such classic pieces. I love them styled with black workwear trousers or jeans! xxx

    I’ve actually never owned a trench coat, I’m a nightmare when it comes to coat shopping! I really like this one though and I love the shorts and top combo you’ve suggested for it, I think that would be a great look all together

    I have to admit that trench coats don’t look good on me. I wish they did though as they’re super stylish. I’d love to be able to pull one off!

    I used to love wearing trench coats… But always full length ones with pictures of bands like Cradle of Filth or Metallica on them, haha

    This is a great guide. This past winter it took me forever to purchase the tent coat I thought complimented my figure the most. It truly it a great alternative to a leather jacket.

    My mummy hasn’t worn a trench coat for ages and the though of wearing one, especially in this heat isn’t appealing. However when the weather starts to change she’s going to invest in one as a wardrobe staple. She’s wear hers with a white shirt, jeans and heels x

    I style mine with dresses. Especially in the winter time to help them from flying away. I also love the long black pants almost super hero look!

    I love the classic look and feel of a trench coat, it’s perfect for all weather x

    i like trench coats and trench coat dresses. But India is too hot for it! This is a nice look.

  20. June 20, 2017 / 9:21 am

    I do love trench coats especially as they’re good for the Autumn when it’s not too cold. I tend to opt for tan as I think it looks good with everything x

    I love a good trench coat. And you’re right. A colorful one can be very versatile.

    I love wearing trench coat even I know that am located in a tropical country. Trench coat is my shield, it helps to protect my inner dresses. And I find it so chic.

  24. June 20, 2017 / 1:34 am

    I live in San Francisco where it gets rather cold in the “summer” and I have a trench coat languishing in my closet. You are inspiring me to pull it out and actually wear it. I think I could rock it with some cuffed jeans and cute flats. .

    I’ve always wanted to own a trench coat but never actually bought one purely because I had no idea how to style it.. Love the outfit you’ve put together and I always wear minimal accessories,so I’ve got that right, haha!

    I love a snazzy trench coat. Here in the US we are definitely not thinking about sporting a trench coat, however the one you’ve got pictured in this post is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    As a fellow Brit I totally understand. You must always be prepared with the weather we get although it would have looked out of place with today’s weather.

  35. June 19, 2017 / 6:14 pm

    This is fabulous! I used to own a couple of trench coats, but I haven’t work them for a long time now.

    Love the idea of a trenchcoat, but I’m quite short and could not find any that truly fit well. Good ideas however!

  37. June 19, 2017 / 4:31 pm

    I have never owned a trench coat. However, a trench coat would be quiet practical for cooler fall and spring weather.

    interesting.. I love trench coats but our weather is very mean.. We have just 2 months of good winters a year in India! And it is during those months only that I love pairing with some antique or jewellery!

  39. June 19, 2017 / 3:56 pm

    I do love trench coats. I’ve been meaning to pick one up. I would just wear it over my t-shirt and jeans!

    Great tips, I love trench coats they’re so cute. But sometimes soooo hard to dress. I’m sure it’s a bit easier when your weather is constantly up and down lol.

    Trench coats are my FAVORITE!!!! I love this!!! Such a great accessory I think!

  43. June 19, 2017 / 3:20 pm

    I have to admit I’ve not owned a trench coat for years, I am awful at just not wearing a coat whatever the weather, but I think if I was to buy another new coat it would definitely be one.

    I have never owned a trench coat before, I am more of a parka girl myself. But I am making the most of this nice weather before it turns again

    My trench coat was easily one of my most worn pieces when I lived in London full-time. Now I just head back to the south of France whenever the weather get warmer. Ha!

    I love trench coats,but I never wear them because I can’t figure out how to style them. This is a great resource on how to do that!

    I don’t always wear jewelry during summers too. I think everyone should learn how to style a trench coat. This post will definitely be of big help especially to those who are planning to mix and match.
