Styling Tips: How to Rock a Trench Coat

Not only is the trench coat fabulously timeless, it’s also the perfect winter-to-spring tranistion outerwear piece. From Rene Zellweger’s hot red to Julia Roitfeld’s bad-girl leather, it’s safe to say the trench having a major style moment. So we’ve pulled some of our fave celebrity looks and tips on how you can rock this trend.

Are you more of a girly girl? Or tough mama?

IN LIVING COLOR

WHY WE LOVE IT>> Color is always attention-grabbing but can be tricky to wear. But this primary color palette is fool-proof!

HOW TO ROCK IT>> Find what color works best for you and style it with a neutral pump. Too afraid to go bold? Rock a classic camel trench coat with a colorful trim or style it with a bright pump or top for a pop. Taffeta Trench Coat (190352,$129), Color Trim Trench Coat (190098, $149)

GIRL MEETS TRENCH

WHY WE LOVE IT>> It exudes a luxurious femme-chic appeal that softens dresses and trousers.

HOW TO ROCK IT>> Try it with a metallic handbag and animal-print pumps for texture. Or for a day look take Alexa’s cue. She wore hers as a cape and paired a trouser with a low-key crossbody bag. Oh, and we’d totally rock Laura’s look after-hours. Her LBD and the embellishments on her coat are stunning. Ruffle Trench Coat (180113, $129)

PATTERN MAKER

WHY WE LOVE IT>> Whether it’s under a trench or on it. One thing is for sure, you can’t do without prints! They are a must-have staple this season.

HOW TO ROCK IT>> Pattern mix! Pull together lace with animal print and balance it out with a coat. You can also rock an animal-print coat with denim for a very chic off-duty look. Just slip a pair of denim on, a tee and a coat and stylishly make your way out the door! Animal Print Trench Coat (180995, $96)

BIKER-CHIC

WHY WE LOVE IT>> It’s sexy and intimidating. It adds a punch of edge to anything (dresses, pants, shorts, you name it!).

HOW TO ROCK IT>> It looks hot when teamed with any style of jeans. You can also glam it up with your favorite cocktail dress and sky-high pumps for a fierce going-out look. May we suggest adding a red pout to it? Sexy, sexy. Leatherette Trench Coat (192248, $149)
