Coldness + Rainfall? Get a Trench Coat Please.

 It is no doubt that the chilly weather is getting the best of us this holiday season. For those who live in places where rain is pretty frequent, a full length trench coat is the perfect solution to protect yourself and your clothes.
Even football managers over the continent have not been left behind with the likes of Alex Ferguson, Robert Mancini, Andres Villas Boas, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola adopting trench coats to keep them warm during the football games.

Why are these coats so great and what benefits do they offer that other coats do not?
 Warmth: The trenches usually have an insulated lining that helps to protect the person wearing the coat. This extra lining will keep out the wind and rain, but will also keep the wearer of the coat very warm.Say no to coldness.
Length: It is long enough to protect all of your clothes from the rain. Since the rain will come down in all directions and the wind may blow it further, a long coat is much better than a shorter coat.

Unisex: They are perfect for men and women. There are different styles and men's trench coats are very different from women's. However, the style is made for both and often times, a woman can grab a man's trench and wear that if she needs to.

Nice style: The full length trench is still very stylish and classy. The belt at the waist helps to keep it more form fitted, but can also be forgiving for those who have more of a mid-section. Women can belt these coats fashionably and even tie them in a nice knot. Men can wear the coats unbelted and open or closed.
Durability: It is usually made of a heavy duty cotton drill or poplin, both of which are waterproof. This makes these coats very durable, and can thus endure harsh weather. A normal leather coat or cotton coat will get wet very easily, but the trench will keep you dry for a longer period of time.
Shopping for an Trench coat:
  • Budget what you can afford. You need to know what you are able to spend and how much flexibility your budget has before you start to browse the different choices and face temptations.
  • Take options. There are many choices out there, so you will want to check them out before you make your decision.Consider the color, length, size and style the trench coat has before purchasing.
  • Shop around. It may sound difficult, but don't just buy the first trench coat that fits and is in your price range. You may not find a better deal elsewhere, but there's always a chance that you might.
Consider buying a few trench coats in different colors, weights and lengths.Make sure the trench coat is big enough to fit over a sweater or light blazer.
Have the sleeves on a trench tailored to fit, if needed.
Avoid a trench coat that is too big or doesn't hang well on your body. This can make you look sloppy.
Stay away from coats with too many details on the shoulders or chest that can overwhelm your frame if you are petite.
Things to wear with a Trench Coat:  
Shift Dress Pairing a shift dress with a trench coat is a classic look. If the weather is too cool to wear a shift dress alone, a trench coat can provide needed warmth in a fashionable way. The trench coat should hit around your knees. The bottom of your shift dress might stick out past the trench coat, which is fine. This gives a preview of what you're wearing underneath.
Bright Colors  
Trench coats usually come in neutral shades like tan or black. Brighten up this drab neutral with some color underneath. Bright colors are a welcome surprise when paired with a neutral trench coat. A brightly colored blouse creates an unexpected pop of color when worn with a classic trench. For fall and winter, consider jewel tones like jade or a deep purple. For spring and summer, go for brighter hues like yellow, orange, fuschia or aqua. 
Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans provide a nice contrast with a trench coat. Since trench coats usually flare out below the waist, they balance well with skinny jeans, which have a tapered leg. Whereas a trench coat with boot cut jeans might provide too much fabric, a trench coat with skinny jeans provides just the right look. Wear your skinny jeans with boots or high heels to give added length to your legs.
Nautical Stripes
Trench coat can complete your look with nautical striped clothing. Pair a horizontally striped shirt in a classic color like navy, white or red with your neutral trench coat. The striped shirt calls for a solid jacket, and the trench coat fits the bill. Wear this look with a pencil skirt or your favorite pair of skinny jeans for a clean, classic look.
