Finding the Perfect Trench

Trench Coat District Sparkle Meaghan Moynahan

A good trench coat is a staple piece in any professional female’s wardrobe; It can be worn over formal wear or on casual Fridays over jeans. It’s a classic piece and if you shop it right, it’ll never go out of style.

The days of oversized, boxy, masculine trenches are gone. These days, with brands like London Fog and BCBG whipping out new trenches every season, you’re able to choose the perfect color, length, and material for what suits your style best. Personally, I’m a fan of classic style with a little bit of a twist and when it came to investing in a trench I found the perfect one for my wardrobe by staying true to that ideology.

As the outermost layer, you should settle for a trench coat that’s stylish and fits well. It shouldn’t be too tight that a suit coat doesn’t fit under but it shouldn’t be big enough to where it looks like you’re drowning. Make sure it fits well in the shoulders and is a longer line coat. This is a personal preference but I’ve always been more of a fan of the more simple longline coats that can slim you out and fully cover dresses.
