Top 3 Trench Coat Trends for 2019


The classic and timeless elegance of the trench coat never goes out of style. Since it made its entrance on the fashion circuit after World War II men and women have adopted the outerwear piece as a wardrobe staple, the perfect overlayer that can span the seasons.

While the classic trench appears unchanged over time it has gone through a contemporary rebirth by adopting new colours, prints, embellishments and details. The best thing about women’s trench coat styles today is that the choice is endless with many cuts, colourways and finishing touches to suit all. Combining those classic trench details such as belts, functional pockets, epaulets and statement buttons with a modern twist is very now.

Read on to find out the top 3 trends that are gaining most of the attention for 2019. 

1. The Big Buttoned Denim Trench

Statement buttons on classic trench styles are nothing new but combined with denim for a medium length design and you’ve got an overcoat that is very of the moment. Mid-length trench coats suit almost every body shape, whether you are tall or short, petite or skinny.

2. Light Pastels and Oversized

Light pastel colours are currently in Vogue making for a fresher summer feel. With the trench coat cut plays an important role. When it comes to cut oversized and a little loose has become the favoured style, making it easy to throw-on over any outfit. It’s a less structured feel to the trench, which works well when belted.

3. Innovative Lapels

It’s all in the detail, and just by making a small change in the design of the lapels can alter the complete look of the trench. This season, a lot of innovative lapel design is available with a variety of cuts, contrasting colour, pattern and embellishment. This gives the traditional trench coat a more casual and fun look.  Other new details to watch out for include the addition of hoods, matching belt bags and tie cuffs.
