The trench coat is a staple piece in almost every wardrobe that I believe does not get the recognition it rightfully deserves. No matter the season, wearing a trench coat could take any outfit to the next level. In the winter you could wear it over a pair of ripped jeans and long sleeve blouse or in the spring over a floral dress. You could even wear it on a rainy summer day over a pair of cute high-waisted shorts and your favorite rock and roll tank top. You cannot go wrong with the endless options of any type of trench coat, whether it is navy, black, burlap, khaki, single or double-breasted.

Styling a trench coat has unlimited possibilities. On a gray day when it’s not necessarily warm but pants seem overrated, follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista. This Fashionista created a vibrant ensemble with three simple pieces: a floral dress, a red infinity scarf and a thin navy double-breasted trench coat. The trench coat adds personality to this Fashionista outfit. The studded gray loafers add a little flare to an already chic outfit. This Fashionista accessorizes with a effortless black leather satchel and circular, black stone earrings.

How To: With a little help from a few basic pieces that you probably already have in your closet, a similar outfit to this Fashionista’s is right at your fingertips. All you have to do is pull out a patterned or floral dress, a trench coat and a stylish scarf of your choice. For a night out, try pairing the outfit with a set of booties instead of loafers. No matter the occasion, don’t be afraid to experiment with the trench coat!
