Are Trench Coats Back On Trend?

Classic Beige Trench Coat Spring 2018
Yes!  Although, were they ever actually off trend?  You know what, who cares?!  We won't get weighed down with the details. Ultimately, trench coats are here to stay and have been since circa, uh, 411 BC (or something).  They're timeless, chic and go a long way in helping you look as though you mean business.  In short, a trench coat is an investment piece for your wardrobe - especially considering at least once a year, we're told they're back 'on trend'.  No complaints here!  Although, when they're discussed, it's very rarely with a focus on the traditional, timeless trench coat that will actually serve you for years to come, and instead delivered with a focus on 'trending' trench coats.  I mean; asymmetrical hemlines, quirky fringing embellishment and wild colour combos.  All of which are gorgeous, but will you still love them next year, the year after or the year after that?  Hmm...

Personally, I feel as though the beauty of a trench coat lies in its versatility.  You can dress it up or down; down with denim and the current ugly trainer trend (no thanks) or pointed flats, and up with heels, slick of lipstick and nude tights.  You can push towards cool minimalist vibes, or go in the opposite direction and look meeting-ready.  I've opted for a high ponytail and polo neck to keep the look chic, and kept accessories to a minimum.  Another thing to love about a classic trench coat, is its ability to work well with various colours, prints and textures.  By investing in a neutral shade (such as black, stone, caramel or grey), you leave the door open to thousands of styling options, come wind, rain or shine.  But probably not snow, best dig out the puffer jacket for that one...

  1. Unrelated but I love those shoes. I am a huge fan of leopard print it just goes with so much and has become a new neutral for me. I think trench coats are always classics, but I feel they are becoming more celebrated now. And many are wearing them in different ways so they could come off like a classic coming back as now a trend. You look so gorgeous and classy :) I can't believe how cold it is lately. Snowing it feels like Christmas all over again. x

  3. I agree with you! Let's not get bogged down with details. I personally feel there will always be a place for trench coats. I love the way you have styled it with the pony tail and polo neck. Very beautiful indeed!

  4. Haha, I am with you on the "ugly trainer trend. I think a good mac is always a great classic option. Although, I've not worn mine in awhile. My trench is a khaki colour and I have shorter grey one. But, I love the modern styles they have now. You look lovely here, a perfect ensemble!

  15. If trench coats ever went off trend, I definitely didn't notice, LOL. They really are timeless and classy. The one you have looks like the perfect piece - stylish year after year because it is such a classic, and extremely versatile too. Love the ultra chic way you styled it here!

  16. I do agree. The beauty of a trench coat lies in their versatility.
    They are always a good choice, one of those timeless clothing items.
    If they are back to being very trendy, well that's just perfect.
    You look divine. You styled this look to perfection.
    Those leo stilettoes really caught my eye. Lovely bag as well.

  18. I love your printed heels with the trench coat! ANd I agree with you, they are a timeless classic! I have one I bought in the sales years ago and I still pull it out over and over, it never shows its age and it's perfect for winter. We don't get snow here in winter you see, haha!

    Hope you are having a great week so far! First day of autumn here in Brisbane, although the weather is still very summer-like, ha!

  24. I love trench coats so much. for me they are sexy in that bond girl type of way (if you catch my drift). They are the perfect cover all to what you want, when and how. I love your look here with the black turtleneck top and leopard print shoes. Very sexy & edgy

  38. I have a short(er) trench coat which is baby pink and love it so much. But the one you have is even better, because it is a classic piece that every woman should own. You styled yours so well, Gabrielle! Love the print on your shoes too xx

  40. I love trench coats because they have that magical way of making me feel like I've got it together regardless of what I have on underneath (hello lulu's). I have one, but I may or may not often steal my mom's - she's got SO many killer ones!

  46. Gabrielle, that trench coat is absolutely STUNNING! I love it. I'm such a fan of trench coats. It's important that they fit properly. Too big and they look sloppy. Yours looks tailored for you. Awesome pairing of accessories. Trench coats are always IN.

  47. This trench coat is absolutely gorgeous that's for sure! I think a trench coat is a classic stable to have in your wardrobe, this one is fitted so incredibly nicely and very impressed with the cut. You have styled this perfectly and love the setting also.

    Wonderful!

  49. I think trenches never go out of style! One of my classic go-to pieces in my wardrobe is a Burberry trench - an investment I was happy to make because I knew I'd wear it for yeaaaars to come. The Jaeger one you're wearing is stunning - such a great shape and I love the pale tone. You look tres chic!

  50. Not a fan of them myself. They're too "everyone's got one"; maybe if I could find a unique one that stands out, I'd change my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Totally agree that trench coats are super versatile and timeless, providing you buy a fairly neutral one that doesn't have too many trend-led embellishments. I've seen some online with bell sleeves and like you said, asymmetrical hemlines and things like that and I'm just not on board. Those kinds of things aren't going to be "in" in about a year so if I were looking to buy a trench coat I'd 100% stick to a classic cut and style.
