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.
With Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans have been in style for a long time and it looks like they’re here to stay. Colorful, pastel, patterned and ripped are just a few skinny jeans styles, and they can all be worn fashionably with a trench coat. See how these lovely ladies have worn their skinny jeans and coats.

Tights can be worn all year round and are a very versatile item. Wear solid or opaque tights with a mini dress on underneath shorts, topped with your favorite coat.
With Shorts/ Skirts
Cover up on cool summer / spring mornings and nights with a trench coat. If you’re wearing shorts or a mini skirt but want to cover up, simply add a coat. (View some of the best shorts, skinny jeans and blazers outfits here).
