History has shown the Trench Coat to survive the test of time. Originally designed in the late 1800s as an alternative piece for British and French soldiers during World War I, has become an essential and iconic element for both men’s and women’s outerwear for centuries.
The traditional standard Double breasted khaki Trench definitely made its mark in the world of fashion. However, designers are tweaking the original design giving it a modern twist. From the different variations of colors, patterns, textures and fabrics used, the trench coat is more stylish than ever before and I’m sure will be here for generations to come.
Trench coats are lightweight and typically worn during transitional seasons such as Fall and Spring. Although it’s best known to compliment the perfect business attire, runway models, Socialites, celebrities and fashion lovers everywhere are adding the popular trench to their everyday style; taking every outfit up a few notches!!! It can give the typical jeans and T-shirt ensemble an elegant edge and or wearing it as a dress can create a mysterious Sophisticated look. It can also be worn with shorts, skirts and or a jumpsuit. Any piece that is as versatile as the trench coat is definitely worth the investment.
The trench coat displayed was purchased from ASOS and it is affordable. I really appreciate the details of every piece I own, so the belted cuffs, the removable Self-tie belt to clinch the waist and the long dramatic oversized sleeves made me whip out my card to purchase. Happy to add another classic piece to my collection.
I hope you love this statement piece as much as I do. Remember shop smarter not harder. Thanks for stopping by! xo
