WHAT TO WEAR WITH TRENCH COATS IN WINTER

Trench coats look just as nice layered over a knitted sweater and trousers as they do worn over a suit to keep the rain at away throughout the winter. Avoid full-length trench coats unless you're looking for an old-school detective vibe, and instead pick for mid-length versions.

If you usually wear black suits, a black trench coat like the one above will stand out and look excellent with grey jeans or fitted pants. Alternatively, keep it traditional with a beige trench coat and throw it over a denim jacket when the weather dips below freezing.

WHAT TO WEAR WITH TRENCH COATS IN SUMMER

Look to lightweight trench coats as a warm weather alternative to overcoats during the summer months for guaranteed sartorial success. They can simply be put on over a pair of skinny jeans and a t-shirt for quick downtime dressing, with colours like yellow and orange adding some summer vibes to your ensembles.
Pair

a light brown trench coat with beige chinos or white jeans for a better appearance, and finish with tassel loafers. For additional ideas on how to wear a men's trench coat this year, see the ensembles below.

WHAT COLOUR TRENCH COAT SHOULD I BUY?

  • Winter – black or beige

  • Spring – stone or beige

  • Summer – beige, yellow or coloured

  • Autumn – navy or brown

HOW SHOULD A TRENCH COAT FIT?

Gothic trench coat should fit like a blazer in most cases, but because you'll be wearing it over numerous layers, it's advisable to try it on over the layers you'll be wearing it with to see if you need to size bigger. With your blazer beneath, you should be able to button up the trench coat and move your arms freely.

If you're going to wear the coat to a casual event, go for a looser size so you can roll up the sleeves if required and still have room for knitwear and sweaters.

If you choose a mid-length trench coat, it should sit a few inches above the knee.
