Just when you think it's time to pack away your coats, knitted jumpers and winter boots to swap them for your summer dresses, England does what it does best and changes it's mind on the temperature every other day!
The forever changing weather in weather in England makes it near impossible to pick an outfit to wear. Will you be too hot or will you be shivery your way to work? I've found one simple tip to resolve that issue (apart from booking a one way ticket to somewhere hot!).
What you ask? It's a trench coat! Yes it's really that simple, I've found it's my go to item when the weather is unpredictable and plus it goes with every item in my wardrobe. I have hand picked my two favourite trench coats from Jack Wills below, not only are they in the most gorgeous pastel colours but their take on the classic jacket is one for everyone. Not only have they created a collection of beautiful trench coats they have also designed a guide so if you are wondering how to style a trench coat Jack Wills have thankfully written a guide on how to wear the statement item. Which you can read here.
Below I have listed a guide on what trench coat is best for you.
Short Trench Coat: The length of these coats reaches a little bit above the hips and is advisable for women with short stature since the short trenches make them visually tall and just on the contrary tall women should shy away from wearing short trench coats to whatever extent is possible. However, if you are of short height with broad hips, avoid wearing short trench coats as well, otherwise visually you will look curvier.
Medium Length Trench Coat: It comes to be the classic variant of trench coats and this was the very trench coat length that was used for attiring the British forces during the war years. This length befits almost every body shape and height, coming to be the ideal variant for short and curvy women. Tall women can also choose medium length trench coats combined with anything trendy and body hugging.
Long Trench Coat: It goes without saying that long trenches are in no way for short women. However, if you aspire wearing a long trench while being a petite girl, it is strongly recommended to choose the length a little bit below the knee and of course, to wear high heels so as to professionally mask your short stature. As for tall women, long trenches will definitely give them grandeur and royalty.
Trench Coat with Wide Lapels: This type of trench coat can work perfectly for petite girls if they want to somehow hide their slim complexion, while plus size women should undeniably stay away from this design.
Trench Coat with Flaring Hems and Medium Length: This is a style excellent for ladies with hourglass figure and long athletic legs.
Denim and Leather Trench Coat: Such trendy pieces are often seen with length below or above the knee and are suitable for every lady depending on her individual preferences.
