9 Fresh Ways to Wear Your Trench Coat for Fall

9 Fresh Ways to Wear Your Trench Coat for Fall

Classically cool, the trench coat has been styled by just about every French fashion icon, from Brigitte Bardot to Marion Cotillard. But the new wave of the trench coat trend is anything but basic. Just look to modern Parisian style muses, Jeanne Damas, AnneLaure Mais Moreau and Sarah Nait, who take the look from elegant soirée to edgy chic.

According to Parisian fashionistas, the key to mastering the trench is all about giving it your own unique touch and approaching it with a hint of creativity. When you see the trench coat as a layering piece, the sky’s the limit.

Here’s how our favorite Parisians are styling it for fall:

Over a navy and white striped top with skinny jeans and fresh white sneakers (this look oozes French chic).

Wear it like a cape draped over your shoulders for a sophisticated feel.


Roll or push up the sleeves and wear it open for a casual vibe. Show off your stylish bangles!

Play with length by wearing a long trench over a short dress with over-the-knee-boots.

Rock it with ankle boots of every variety, from moto to sleek.

Style it with a pop of bold color, such as red heels or boots to add some edge.


Layer it over a little black dress for an alluring date night ensemble that ups your cool factor (and keeps you warm on crisp fall nights!)

Belt the trench but leave it unbuttoned to accentuate your waist and reveal your fabulous outfit underneath.

For a soirée-ready look, pair it with a leather midi skirt and stilettos.
