Sultry, Sexy, Classic: Trench Coat Fashion

Trench Coat fashion for Wome over 50

When it comes to coats, you have your parkas, your faux furs, your pea and your swings, but the one that has made its mark throughout history in movies and amongst the fashion elite is trench coat fashion.

This is the coat that stands out by not standing out. It’s mysterious yet forthright. It’s masculine, yet sultry. You can dress it up or dress it down. It’s functional, versatile, and just plain chic.

Think Marlene Dietrich in Witness the Prosecution, Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour, Audrey Hepburn in Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Bette Davis in Of Human Bondage. The Trench has a reputation to uphold, and it does so beautifully, whether short, mid-length or long.

This year, the coat fashion trend is in full swing – and with cooler (and wetter) weather approaching many of us, let’s use that as an excuse to get our fix. Here are a few of the styles that caught our eye this season.

Any list has to start with the classic Burberry – one of the original two inventors of the coat. In fact, they have an entire collection dedicated to Trench Coat Fashion – separated into the Heritage Trench, the Runway Trench, and Beyond the Classics.
