Is a classic trench coat a Spring closet must-have for you, too?  Today, we are sharing our favorite trench coat outfit ideas for every body type.

When the season turns, a new trench coat is almost always one of the first pieces I invest in for the new season.  In my opinion, they make for the more versatile pieces you can own.  It’s a wardrobe must, if you ask me.  And, perfect if you have been working to build a capsule wardrobe for the season.

Many of you heard me rave about this incredible blue double breasted trench coat I bought last year.  I loved it so much I broke down and invested in the identical one in olive green this year. 

As you will see from the outfit ideas below, I love styling a timeless trench coat with an equally killer dress.  If you can, I highly recommend getting your hands on a colorful trench coat that you know you can style with a variety of different looks.  If you choose a classic trench coat style, it’s a piece you’ll have in your closet for years to come.  

Some of my favorite trench coat outfits include pairing with jeans, a great Spring or Summer dress, wide leg pants and even shorts with heels.

What’s great, too, is the investment in a trench coat doesn’t have to be expensive.  Below, I’ve included a number of trench coats at price points that won’t break your bank this season.  You’ll find brands including Sam Edelman, London Fog, Everlane, J.Crew and more.  Be sure to check out each style in detail as many of the below options come in multiple colors.

While these trench coat options are a tad more expensive, all are still great styles for both Fall and Spring alike.  



  • FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN:  When it comes to a night out with the girls for your beau, don’t count out your trench coat.  For a night out, choose a trench coat made of linen or satin and replace the belt with a stylish leather or studded option.  A trench coat as a dress? Yes, please! 
  • WEEKEND BRUNCH:  A trench coat isn’t only appropriate for your tied-together business casual look.  Don’t hesitate to pair your colored trench coat with a pleated skirt and tank, wide leg pants and cute graphic tee or your favorite denim and Spring sweater.  
  • YOUR WEEKEND GROCERY RUN:  With all of us wearing our favorite legging and sweatpant sets these days, dress up your casual weekend grocery run look by throwing on your favorite trench coat, too.  Don’t forget your favorite sneakers, as well. 
  • MEETING WITH YOUR FAVORITE CLIENT:  A classic trench is textbook business-casual.  You can never go wrong wearing a great option for any meeting. It’s also neutral enough to handle a loud look underneath, especially when you’re working with variations on preppy prints like plaid. Don’t hesitate to go bold with jewelry—that way, once the hectic day is over, there’s no need to change for happy hour.
