To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would look in a trench coat. If they don’t fit me the right way or if it’s too long, I end up looking like Inspector Gadget or completely lost in it. So when I saw this one on House of W, I took a chance on it. And now I’m slightly obsessed. It’s seriously the perfect length (I’m 5’2”) and the tie back bow gives it form and makes it totally flattering.
I love that I can wear it with short booties or knee high boots and it would still look good. The satin? To die for, right? I love mixing textures and thought it would be perfect with my new velvet booties. If you haven’t jumped on the velvet trend train yet, starting with shoes could be a good start. And then work your way up. However I’m completely obsessed and would wear head-to-toe velvet and feel completely in my element.
I’ve linked 15 trench coats under $60 below. Some are meant to be more for show and some will actually keep you warm. Choose one or choose all 15… there are some good ones in here! I actually just ordered the Cape Trench Duster so I will let y’all know what I think when it gets here 🙂
If you think you’ll hate trench coats, try a few different ones before you make a final judgment call. Because apparently I had just been trying the wrong ones all along! And now, I’m hooked!
