Until lately, shopping trench coats for women was a matter of choosing between a sea of raincoats that were nearly indistinguishable. This summer and fall the style has gotten a lot hipper, now coming in lots of lengths, colors (not just tan and black any more), non-raincoat fabrications including leather and more. It’s a trend that shows signs of snowballing right into winter, so we recommend you hop on the trench coat trench before your favorite style sells out. We’ve highlighted some cool new outfits ideas and pulled out iterations of our favorite brands.

Pair Your Trench With Long Shorts

In late summer, a trench coat with soft details—ruffles, a bib collar—looks casually chic topping a warm-weather outfit that bares a bit of skin. Come fall, you’ll be wanting to pair this trench with other style-forward pieces like short cowboy boots and flowy dresses.

Traditional Double-breasted, With A Side Of Color

There’s no substitution for a classic button-front, mid-calf waterproof trench. It can take you from the board room to church, it’s so versatile. And you’ll be able to wear it for 20 years. However, make sure your look says 2022 not 1952 by pairing your trench with a colorful accessory or two, or even a vinyl designer handbag. And a red lip is always welcome.
