Fashion Tip: How To Wear A Trench Coat

Trench coats are not necessarily reserved for cold, rainy days or winter and fall months – obviously thick wooly trench coats are not suitable for summer and spring days but there are trench coats in so many cuts, colors and fabrics that they can be worn almost all year round. Take a few tips from these fashion forward girls on how to rock a trench coat in so many different ways and turn your coat into a versatile garment. 

Here are some new ways to wear a trench coat:

As A dress

This is a popular way to wear a trench coat in warmer seasons. The best type of coat to wear as a dress would be a longer-length coat with buttons and a waist tie. This look creates an “a-line” dress and can be worn with or without tights and ankle booties or high heels.
