How to Wear the Classic Trench Coat

As a young preteen, I discovered my adoration for Audrey Hepburn and her classic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Ever since then, owning a trench coat has always been a desire of mine and last month, I finally found the perfect one whilst thrifting in New York City. The trench coat is one of the most chicest, timeless outerwear pieces a woman can own and I wanted to style one to adhere to my own tastes.

IN THE TRENCHES

Although it was slightly expensive for a thrifted piece, I thought it was a well justified purchase because it hardly had any wear to it. In fact, it almost looks brand new. The brand is L.K. Bennet (similar style) which at the time I never heard of, but I looked it up and this particular jacket could have gone for $500. Plus, it is a British company and what’s more British than a trench coat?

As for the sizing, I wish it was slightly more form-fitting, but what do expect when it is a size US 6 and I am a 00! Surprisingly, it does not look like I am swimming in it, but it does have a more oversized look which I actually prefer for my trench coats anyway. The length is perfect as it falls in the middle of my thigh and it gives me the illusion of looking much taller than I really am.

THE OUTFIT

As you can see from my Instagram, I decided to say screw it to the unseasonably warm weather and wore this outfit. Okay yes, it was quite warm and I had to shed the trench coat after a bit, but oh well. It is fall gosh darnnit and I just wanted to finally bust out my new jacket.

I wore it with a basic white turtleneck (another of my fall/winter wardrobe staples), a pair of high-waisted dark wash skinny jeans and these gorgeous deep red Cole Haan boots I thrifted this weekend. I thought it would look très chic by taking this classic trench coat and wearing it a bit more modernly by keeping it loose and slightly disheveled. I slouched it off one shoulder and just used the belt around the waist to cinch everything together.

I honestly feel like this is something my wardrobe has been missing for a long time! Now that I own it, I half want to wear it for Halloween and go around crying about loosing my cat named Cat while it is pouring rain. Please, tell me I am not the only Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan here? Haha.

Until next time!
