How to style the trench?
Spring is in less than a month.
Soon I will be able to wear my trench(s) – I have two of them (and would like to have a third one…) – again (yey!).
I love trenches because they are very versatile and makes every outfit look classy.
In one of my very first posts, I gave advices on how to choose a trench and how to wear it.
Today I will give some tips on how to style the trench, or, more precisely, on how to use the trench to style very different outfits.
1. Whatever your style is, the trench is for you
And will easily add class to every outfit.
A. With basic style
The trench itself is a basic.
But basics together can make a stylish look if you have attitude and choose them carefully.
Here the trench is very fluid, which is chic and slightly unusual, the jeans are very stiff which is very stylish and the mules and braids give the attitude.
B. With girly style
You love girly things but are afraid they will make you look like a little girl?
Use a trench to make your skater mini skirt look like it belongs to a grow-up.
C. With sexy style
That leather skirt and super low V neck sound too sexy for the street?
Just add a trench on your shoulder to cool the look.
D. With rock style
Ripped pants, leather pants, washed up jeans, are very rock indeed but you would like to be classy as well?
Use a trench ^^
E. With colorful or printed style
Heavy colored and busy outfits can be soften by a plain trench.
Outfit suggestion: Yellow skirt +
2. Trench can be more than a basic
The fluid trench is THE shape of the moment.
I like it cause it gives the silhouette a really relaxed and elegant allure.
It looks similar to a kimono and suits every bodyshape.
You could choose it in suede fabric, that is very stylish.
For other shapes, check out my article on how to wear the trench.
The beige trench is my all time favorite. It is a real basic and will give you that classic effortless chic you are looking for.
Once you own the beige trench, you could purchase other colors.
– Light colors
They are great to twist a “normcore” look made of jeans and white T-shirts.
– Dark colors
Be careful though that the trench looks “cool” with a fabric that is rather fluid.
With a stiff fabric I do not know why but I think it looks uncool.
– Bold colors
The trench displays a large colored surface. Therefore with a bright trench, I advice you to stick to neutrals and darker colors with the rest of your outfit.
Yes the trench can be printed!
With those, I advise you to stick to plain elements on side.
3. To conclude
As I said in my previous trench post. The trench looks great worn either opened or closed.
One option I like very much and did not mention last time is wearing your trench closed, as if you were wearing nothing underneath (but you do obviously right? Well, that is your choice. Maybe you are like Carine Roitfeld…). Damn sexy anyway.

And you? How do you wear your trench?
