The mark of a stylish woman can be measured in how she reworks the classics. A trench coat, for instance, can be?pretty unremarkable, but it can also look utterly modern if given a little consideration. Here are five of the best modern ways to wear a trench coat.
Mix up textures
This combination of patent leather and canvas looks so contemporary and adds a real fashion edge to this traditional design.
Embrace a fresh colour palette
This earthy shade of maize feels totally unexpected on a trench coat. Clever colour choices are one of the easiest ways to freshen up old classics.
Statement silhouettes are key for the coming season. Usually fitted at the waist, this style of coat in an oversized design looks bold and completely on trend.
I love the faux fur collar of this coat. It adds a point of difference and a hit of luxury to what can be quite a utilitarian item.
Add a sporty spin
Usually worn with smart tailoring, a trench takes on a completely different guise when paired with sporty trainers and jeans. The subtle metallic sheen of this coat adds extra fashion kudos.
Choose a mid-thigh length and wear your trench with preppy separates such as a button-front shirt and pinafore. It’s a more feminine way to wear a trench and a perfect choice for petite women who can end up overwhelmed by flowing calf-lenth coats.
Add an individual touch
