I am very picky when it comes to finding the right trench coat. When I first saw this trench coat, it was love at first sight! Owning a classic trench coat is a fashion necessity, and it is within just about anyone’s reach. I love how versatile they are and that they give that extra polished finish to any outfit. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing the right trench coat for yourself:
1.) Choose the right hemline.
Right at the knee or shorter is the perfect length for most body figures.
If you’re petite like myself, shorter is better, and adding a heel will add length to your frame. You taller ladies will look better in a longer trench coat than us shorties.
If you choose a longer trench, choose under pieces that are form fitting to prevent from looking frumpy. Slouchy pants, maxi dresses, and skirts are not recommended to match with any trench coat.
2.) Choose the right sleeve length.
You don’t want your sleeves eating up your hands. Your sleeves should fall right at your wrist bone. Also, make certain that your jacket is not too tight, your coat should not restrict your arms from moving.
2.) Belt or no belt.
For taller ladies, tying the belt will help add structure.
Ladies with larger busts or bigger tummies should avoid belting a trench coat, as it will only add bulk to this area of your body. Instead, choose a more form-fitting coat and tie the belt behind your back to create shape to the coat. As seen in the picture below.
Experiment with your trench coat. Try on different colors at the store before you set your mind on just one. When choosing a color, consider the clothes you already own to make certain that the coat stays versatile. When you find that perfect one, experiment with different outfits to wear with your tench. Wear it with a little black dress, skinny jeans, or simply layer your coat and roll the sleeves up.
