It is hard to wear the right clothes at times. You can’t just put on whatever you want. Some items go hand in hand, others clash with one another. One of these items is the short trench coat. It may seem like a simple piece of clothing, but it doesn’t have too many rules that go along with it. That being said, there are a few things that you need to know about the medium.
What is a short trench coat?
It is a type of coat that is pretty short in length and can fall around your hips. It comes with a buttoned-up front, two side pockets on each side. The main body is usually made out of suede leather or maybe even cotton and there are sewn on patches where the sleeves are. They come in all colors and have different styles for each model. They are perfect for the fall season.
How to wear a short trench coat:
They are an easy piece of clothing and look great in so many different ways depending on what you pair it with. You can combine it with a casual sweatshirt or maybe even a denim jacket is worn underneath. Then, pair it with some skinny jeans and sneakers for a cool look. If you want a more chic look then you could go for the puffy sleeve shirts and some high heels to make yourself stand out.
When you wear the short trench coat, make sure that it goes with your outfit. It shouldn’t be out of place. You should also choose wisely where to show it off. They can be paired with so many different types of outfits and they all look great. You just need to make sure that you choose the right one for your occasion.
So I’m not a fashion expert (I’ve never been near one) but I feel that short trench coats are really comfortable and stylish if worn right. But some people just pull off a short trench coat in such a way that simply don’t look right. Here are the dos and don’ts of a short trench coat.
Do: Wear a short trench coat with your favorite pair of boots. It looks really chic!
Don’t: Wear it with boring, black leggings. They don’t complement the look at all and make you look like you’re going to a gothic club. You’ll be taken for a cheap hooker and it won’t look good at all.
Always wear a sweater or sweatshirt under your short trench coat. I’d recommend a light, knit one that doesn’t completely cover up your legs. It’s so much cuter with a little bit of skin showing and keeps you warmer in the colder months.
Wear long sleeves under your short trench coat so that there is at least half an inch of fabric showing around the neck in case you decide to remove the scarf/jacket underneath.
Always make sure that the collar of your trench coat is properly lined with lining so that there is no creasiness around the neck, and the flap is sized close to your chin.
Although this is a classic fashion item, it can be hard to pick out the perfect short trench coat that fits well. With so many variations of this type of coat on the market, it is hard to decide what color to buy, what length to wear and how to mix and match with other garments. Whatever your requirements are, it is better to find a short trench coat that caters for them.
There are many types of coats and jackets on the market, but it is worth spending a few extra dollars for a quality one that fits you well and will last for many seasons. To get the best coat, you should think about your own body shape, size and budget. If you happen to be on a shoestring budget, take into consideration that one of the most basic requirements is that a short trench coat should be well made.
There are many points for choosing the right short trenchcoat. You need to pay attention to fit and quality too. With all these factors in mind, you will be able to choose the best short trench coat for yourself.
When looking for a short trenchcoat, it is important that you choose a color that complements your outfit. For example, if you have a bright pink dress on, then do not wear a black short trench coat. It is preferable to avoid wearing the same colour as your outfit as this may lead to clashing. Therefore, always use one that is slightly different from the rest of your wardrobe.
When purchasing a short trench coat, it is also essential that you choose the right size for yourself. This will make a huge difference when it comes to the overall look of your garment. To get the best fit, try on a few different ones before deciding on one. Remember that a short trench coat should be slightly loose as well as long enough to keep you warm during cold winter months.
When you wear a short trench coat during the cold months of winter, you may have your outfit over leggings or jeans. If that is the case, make sure that another layer such as a sweater or blouse is added underneath.
I bought a short trench coat from a vintage store with a completely different cut and style than what is pictured here. The storekeeper said it was worn by one of the original designers in the early 60’s and would translate to how it looked, according to her, when she was in fashion school. I bought it with every intention of wearing it all year round with layers and bottoms, but I’m not too sure how well that’s going to work.
