Wearing all black is always a chic option and playing with textures and even lengths like this maxi trench coat will only make you more stylish. This simple & sleek look worked well for a client meeting but it’s also great for the office, professionals event & brunch. Adding texture through the versatile textured pencil skirt & patent accessories and then layers with the maxi trench coat, make for a more interesting look. A trench coat is a great classic piece that looks great styled during Autumn and winter. Of course, the lighter & shorter versions also work well in the warmer months.
Although generally, trench coats are easy to wear & style, a maxi, also known as longline, version requires a nice balance to pull it off. It looks fabulous worn over a trouser outfit but should either be longer or shorter than your trouser hem. This is so you don’t look short or stumpy. Similarly, when wearing skirts, the hem of the maxi coat should mostly fall lower than the shirt hem to give a taller appearance and more flattering look. Whenever possible, use a slim waist belt to cinch in the waist for a more form flattering look. This complete outfit doesn’t scream “give me attention” but it certainly makes a style statement. A great example of elegance with simplicity.
