Trench coats are usually a mid-season must-have, it’s a spring into a summer fashion staple that has now had different updates. Designers like Burberry had their take, Monse is not missing, Alexander Mcqueen designed its own with puffy sleeves and thanks to Rihanna who showed us how to style this vintage look.
This classic coat is always an investment piece that doesn’t run out of style. There is now a new way to rock this classic look in a form of a dress. This trench coat made into a dress starts taking strides back in 2018 when Rihanna sported one while promoting her Fenty beauty brand. She wore this mini off-the-shoulder khaki coat by Monse and cinched with a gold-buckled Oscar de la Renta belt to show off her waist.
We’ve now come to realize that this utilitarian staple has a staying power. Trench dresses now come in various designs and with belts which makes them easy to style for spring-summer looks. The beautiful thing about trench dresses is that they are so versatile in styling and in use. While the weather is hot, it can be styled with your favourite sandals and cinched with your favourite belt, finish the look with a top handle bag and you’re good to go.
When the weather gets colder, it can be worn with your favourite pair of boots, layer on top of a white button-up shirt and you’ve got your workwear look or layered on top of your favourite turtlenecks, knitwear e.t.c. along with your tights or denim jeans. They so versatile and a great investment for your wardrobe.
