A trench coat is basically a raincoat made of heavy duty cotton drill, poplin, leather or wool gabardine. While it was developed as an alternative to heavy overcoats for soldiers during the First World War, today trench coats for women are stylish and trendy. They don’t just protect you from the rain and wind but add a certain chic to your appearance. Plus, they are extremely versatile and practical as they can be worn in spring as well as fall. The other advantage is that they have a slimming effect while being very comfortable to wear. The range of trench coats for women is amazing. There are different colors, styles, materials, lengths and designs available. Some are lined, some unlined and yet others come with a removable lining. They may also come with accessories like shoulder straps, a belt or D-rings. They look good with a vast majority of outfits.
Leather trench coats are always in style and very popular. The leather quality plays an important role in how sharp and elegant your coat looks. It is wise to spend a little more to get a high quality as it will last you for years to come.
