Anchored with classic references, the familiar trench coat looks updated with a few subtle tweaks. Longer variations are where it’s at and volume is not spared. A frayed edge or double lapel adds an interesting side note and is a reminder that a trench coat doesn’t need to be bound by traditional design elements.
These three images are good options on how best to style the updated trench coat now. Sylvia Haghjoo, above, in a khaki Dior is head-to-toe perfection keeping it simple with jeans and loafers. The always chic Pernille Teisbaek wearing a casual, layered, tonal story nails it. And Sofia Sanchez de Betak creates a flattering silhouette with a long trench worn unbuttoned then cinched tightly at the waist.
