I love my trench coats! How to wear a trench coat casually.
< QUICK SHOP THE LOOK >
We have had all of about one half day with a tiny bit of sunshine around here and I am ready to throw off my knitwear in replacement of a light coat! The other day I even spotted daffodils in a public park and made a mental note to head back and take a walk to see them properly. Call me garden obsessed, but Spring is my favourite. Plus I can more than appreciate the efforts of gardeners who care to plant flowering bulbs only to await their bloom date.
Garden nerd alert!
Of course, truth be told I may just be a week or two early in throwing off the knits. As you may have seen over on Instagram, I am currently tucked up in and obsessed with the most lush knit EVER! (If you missed it, check it out!).

A CASUAL WAY TO WEAR THE TRENCH COAT
Trench coats are one of my regular go-to’s for any time of the year. A light jacket is something I wear over just about anything. Come to think of it I have probably worn this one at least a few times on Inspiring Wit. Yet another example of a capsule wardrobe working its magic. You can find more on my capsule wardrobe list over in this post.
Anyway, they save me all the time. Casually, a trench coat can dress up an every-day look and instantly take it from just another jeans and a tee to something more chic. The longline drape, collar detail and option for a waist cinching belt work wonders.
As to how I style a trench coat casually?
It’s all about getting the colours right and paying attention to the details. I love pairing a traditional beige trench coat with white and vintage wash denim. Keep things relaxed, with light neutral tones. Apart from colour blocking with neutrals, details are the main focus. My favourites? Metallic accessories, a lace touch or peak of a statement cuff.
Easy and chic.
