22. Sandro Pleated Trench Coat
Pear-shaped gals, this intricate number is a great option for you. The sharp pleating throughout means this coat has more give and flexibility, so you won’t have to size up to fit your lovely curves.

This floral print was inspired by traditional Pennsylvania Dutch bedding, for a vintage vibe without the hassle of the thrift store (or any mothball smells).
24. Nanushka Manila Vegan Leather Trench Coat
Two-tone pieces are shaping up to be a wonderfully quirky mini trend in 2020, but we think the combination of blush pink and off-white faux leather will continue to be stylish for years to come.
25. Michelle Waugh The Jany Silk Plaid Trench Coat
If you’re looking for a splurge, this beauty is absolutely worth it. The fabric is super lightweight and drapes beautifully, plus that minimalist purple-pink plaid is much more versatile than one might assume.
