I’ve had quite a few comments about my teal trench coat that I showed last week, and I thought it worthy of its own post!
A trench truly is the perfect spring coat. It’s a classic that never seems to go out of style. I have had this trench (from LOFT) for 10 years. Seriously!
What to Look for in a Trench Coat
1. To belt or not to belt: I prefer a coat that is not belted. That’s just my personal preference, but it’s hard to find in a trench, and perhaps why I’ve kept mine for 10 years!
2. Make sure the trench has some structure at the waist so it’s flattering and feminine.
3. Consider a hood. Mine does not have a hood and I often wish it did. I hate umbrellas, and the reason I don’t wear this trench coat more is that I often opt for my more casual raincoat with a hood so I don’t have to futz with an umbrella.
4. I highly recommend getting a color, rather than a neutral. It’s just so much more fun. But then again, a neutral goes with everything, and that’s always a bonus. If you do go for a neutral, find one with some interesting detail.
