How I Style a Trench Coat

As I live in England and the weather is unpredictable no matter what the season is, a trench coat is an absolute essential in my wardrobe. I feel that it is one of the most timeless pieces in fashion, it comes back each year, the styles may vary but it is always in the shops or on the runway in some shape or form.

 Jack Wills stock a few different styles of women’s trench coats in their stores and on their websites.

My personal favourite style of coat is the classic fitted trench – similar to the Ambrose Trenchthat is on the Jack Wills website.  It literally can be paired with anything, from workwear to casual attire. It is a wardrobe staple for many people (including me). This season there are tonnes of different colours on the market, my particular favourite is the dusty pink (also known as millennial pink), but I have yet to get my hands on one of these.

The neutral colour of the jacket means that I can wear it with pretty much any outfit, making it super easy to style. The only downside is it does get dirty fairly easily but this is easily solved.

When I’m looking for a coat it can often be quite difficult as I am petite so my main tip would be to make sure that it is just above the knee – I’ve found that this is my ideal length as it is the most flattering, any longer and I look shorter than I am!

Moving in to autumn/winter I would love to pick up a trench in a different colour to add to my ever growing coat collection.  What kind of trench do you love?
