Trench coats are a classic style worn by men and women meant to keep you warm and dry. They originated during the first world war for practical reasons (they could protect you from the elements, but they were made of light, comfortable material) but now, they’re considered trendy – particularly when belted. They usually hit around knee length, but can be lower or higher and can be dressed up or down. With so many styles available, there is likely a trench you’ll love. Check out how the celebs are wearing their coats!
Taylor Swift and Vaneli Ulan
Here Taylor blows kisses to her fans and photogs on her way to some promo work for her album “Speak Now”. Her trench may be simple, but it still makes a statement. It’s got clean lines and a great fit for a nice, minimalistic vibe. She combines her coat with her classic vintage style, pairing it with dual tone heels in tan/black. If you’re looking for a similarly classic shoe, try the Vaneli Ulan. These sweet Vaneli pumps are designed with both comfort and style in mind.
Kirsten Dunst and Kate Spade Karolina
Here Kirsten Dunst rocks a trench that seems to be a sexy substitute for a dress at a Women in Entertainment Breakfast. We don’t know what’s underneath, but we do know that she looks great in in her chic navy coat. It’s such an effortless look, and it works well paired with her black bag and satin pumps, similar to the Kate Spade Karolina. The belt and bold buttons really add to the outfit and every detail, right down to her bright nails makes this style work. Shiny satin shoes such as this Kate Spade pair help to dress up a more casual look, so Kirsten made a great choice with satin instead of say, suede.
Emmy Rossum and Tory Burch Selma
Here Emmy Rossum is seen straight off the runway, the airplane runway that is. She arrives at Los Angeles International Airport as stylish as ever. Emmy makes her leopard print dress the focus of her look with simple accessories including a neutral bag, black tights and classic, understated boots, similar to the Tory Burch Selma. Basic boots let your your outfit shine and pair well with prints and bold colors. This Tory Burch pair would work particularly well with a print like cheetah, thanks to its golden emblem.
