How to Buy a Trench Coat

Trench coats are one of the trending fashion pieces right now for your winter wardrobe. It's a great trans-seasonal piece for your spring and autumn wardrobe too! The best thing about a trench coat s that they don’t go out of fashion!
If you are looking to invest in a trench coat, there are a few things to consider before you bring one home.

1. Select the shade that compliments your skin complexion.

2. Pay attention to the length of the coat. Sometimes a really long coat can look overwhelming on a petite person.

3. The design and the suitability for your shape.

For example, how wide is the collar? Do you prefer a belt? Lined or unlined,

In terms of the collar, if you are an inverted triangle, it’s best to avoid wide collars.
If you are triangle shape, wide collars are the best!
For those who are rectangular shape or are hourglass shape, choose a trench with a belt to give the allusion of a waist for the rectangular shapes and to highlight the waist if you are hourglass shape.
If you are round shape, wearing your tench open (unbuttoned) will create flattering lines.

Here are some of my styling inspirations with my trench.
