Trench Coat Trends

The timeless trench coat is a staple in every wardrobe - man, woman, adult or child (especially trendy ones). From military function to everyday fashion, the trench coat is très chic.
 
The trench coat started to appear in the early 1800s as weatherproof outerwear
 
From Audrey Hepburn to Blake Lively, Harry Styles and beyond. The trench is here to stay. Here are some of the top trench trends to look out for in 2019 and how to wear them.
 
 
Classic camel
You cannot beat a classic trench coat. If you don’t have one, run, do not walk. Get one. Layer it, belt it, love it, keep it. A classically coloured trench is the best season staple you can own.
 
Bold and brilliant
Bold prints and power colour blocked combos are making a statement this Autumn. Coloured panels, checks, spots, prints and more. The trench can be classic, but it can also be CLASSIC!
 
Textured treasures
Suede, PVC, leather, denim, faux fur and more. The trench has no limits! You can pair a crisp shirt and jeans or slacks with a textured trench for an on trend look that says ‘style’.
  
Coloured covers
Bright and bold is beautiful! Trenches aren’t covering up (lol). Whether it’s a block of colour or a coloured lining, we’re seeing all the colours of the rainbow in the trenches. 
 
Trench coat trivia
Did you know:
  • Trench coats are called ‘trench’ coats, because it was used as a coat by British troops in WW1
  • Burberry was apparently one of the first brands to ‘trend up’ the trench
  • The extra patch sometimes on one breast of a trench coat (the gun flap), comes from the days where it would be used as padding between rifle and shoulder.
The best part about trench coats, is that they are never going out of fashion. Buy them. Keep them. Pass them on to your daughters and sons. Look fabulous.
