Trench coats are a must in every girl’s wardrobe for the simple reason that they are evergreen classics and a definite must have every season!
While the trench coat can be traced back in history to primarily a need based, military man’s coat worn to give protection from rain and cold, the new avatar of the trench coat is stylish, seductive and fashionable. Not surprisingly therefore, trench coat in today’s date and time is worn by more and more women and the best part – it is flattering for almost all body shapes, when chosen with care and worn well.
Traditionally, a trench coat is a knee length or longer coat, made mostly of rainproof material and offering protection from cold as well. It is made of thicker fabrics and is usually with belts and deep pockets. Of late, the classic style has seen some metamorphosis, with the length varying from knee to thigh and even shorter length; belts have often been replaced by buttons and the colours that they are available in are far from the usual – khaki and beige to any color under the sun that you can possibly imagine.
Trench coat dresses are also a fall out from the classic trench coat; however, such is the popularity of the classic coat that, women still prefer wearing these dresses as trench coats themselves!
