10 Fashion Forward Ways to Style a Trench Coat

E+A Lifestyle

A trench coat may be timeless, but you can make it ultra-current with a few simple styling tweaks. Here are our top 10 simple ways you can style your trench coat for a totally fashion-forward look.


1) Peekaboo gap

Flash a cheeky peek of your get-up underneath by fastening your trench loosely with only the belt. It lends a casual elegance to your look and has a relaxed feel for spring.


2) Go on-off

Up your street-style game by wearing your trench half on, half off. Seen on the runways of Balenciaga and Acne, it’s an edgy way to style your trench that bestows infinite cool points.


3) Scrunch those sleeves

Inject a casual insouciance (and look like you mean business) by scrunching up your trench sleeves. It works great if you’re wearing a lively top underneath, too.


4) Switch the belt

Sure, your trench belt is great, but switching it for a statement one like Gucci’s iconic GG belt or an Alaia corset-style waist-cincher is guaranteed to turn heads.


5) Pop ya collar

Banish pesky draughts? Check. Instant injection of mystery? Check. Sherlock Holmes chic? Check, check, check! Popping your trench coat collar has so many benefits and is a simple way to update your look.


6) Tie at the rear

Want to stay unbuckled? Tidy up a dangling belt by fastening it at the rear in a cute bow or by tying the official Burberry knot. Simply cross the straps, loop the unbuckled end over the top, turn it under the buckled end, lift over and loop through. Voila!


7) Smarten up sportswear

Whether throwing over a hoodie or pairing with your Balenciaga Triple S trainers, you can polish up your off-duty casual looks in a flash by slinging on your trench.


8) Supersize me 

Going voluminous with a trench a few sizes too big is an on-trend way to wear your trench coat. Top tip: avoid looking swamped by cinching in your waist with the belt for a nipped-in look.


9) Button-up

For extra drama, channel an Inspector-Gadget-femme-fatale mash-up by buttoning your trench up entirely with its belt firmly buckled too.


10) Ditch the buckle, embrace the knot

Buckles? Who needs buckles when you can fasten your belt in an easy-breezy way? Give your outfit a carefree vibe by casually tying it in a knot instead.
