Wardrobe Staple: Trench Coats


Trench coats are a wardrobe staple because of their versatility. You can dress them up or down. They come in a variety of colors, styles, and lengths. Another plus is that they look great on pretty much every body shape.

Since your body is naturally proportional, you can wear any trench coat with a belt. If you do have a fuller figure and a larger bust, go for a trench coat with only single buttons.

Since your lower half is larger than your top half, you want to accentuate your top. Go for anything with shoulder pads and ruffled shoulders. This will even out your shape.

Since your body is top heavy, you want to concentrate on your bottom half. Go for anything with a detailed bottom such as big pockets or a pleated bottom. This will balance out your proportions.

Fun Fact: Burberry is best known for their trench coats because Thomas Burberry, founder of Burberry, was one of the first people to design a trench coat.
