How To Style A Trench Coat

When you think of a trench coat, a multi faced, chameleon of style comes to mind. It's rare to find a piece so iconic that the original has been constantly and consistently loved and sort after since the 1850's.
That's not to say innovation isn't welcome. With such a classic as the foundation, twists on the original design can become just as key statement pieces as the ones they're based on.

There are some items of clothing that are a must in everyone's wardrobes and a trench is one of them. Nowadays this is no longer restricted to a gender or an age group. With its versatility through reinvention of colours, materials and lengths, it can fit in anyone's wardrobe. Whether you wouldn't dare be seen in anything other than black or if baby pink is your one and only!

Jack Will's is at the forefront of the trench coat reinvention with their new cuts and colours. They've given the classic beige trench coat a fresh new version with a swing shape, pleating and tie accents.

Jack Wills have a great spot on guide, if you want to know some more about the history of the trench coat plus lots of tips and tricks for nailing your perfect outfit every time!

My favourite tips: dress it up, with a power suit, cinched in by the belt to give you a stronger silhouette and an even stronger outfit. Alternatively wear it loose and open, belt tied at the back, over jeans and a simple tee for an about town kind of vibe!

For me, I crown a true style winner on whether I can wear something with both my converse and heels. If it passes that test then it's going to spend a very long time in my wardrobe.

Have you had a look for your perfect trench coat?

Happy styling!
