How to Choose a Trench Coat You’ll Love to Wear


Trench Coat Buying Tips

Trench coats have been one of the trending fashion pieces in recent years. It's a great trans-seasonal piece in your spring and autumn wardrobe. The best thing about trench coats is that they don’t go out of fashion!

Here are a few trench coat buying tips when you go shopping for one:

1. Select the shade that compliments your skin tone, especially if you want one in the beige colour pallet. Natural tones like beige, black and navy are safe but a trench coat in a blood colour will add a bit of spark to your wardrobe.

2. Pay attention to the length of the coat. Sometimes a 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,

It’s best to avoid wide lapels if your body shape is an inverted triangle so that you are not adding more volume to the shoulder area.

If you are triangle shape, wide collars are great!

A great trench coat buying tip if you are rectangular in shape, is to choose one with a belt to give the illusion of a waist.

If you are round shape, wearing your tench open (unbuttoned) will create flattering lines.

Most trench coat styles will suit ladies who have an hourglass shape.
