Trench Coat: An Essential Clothing Item
This is one of those pieces that is both a classic and an on-trend item right now. Itís available in a variety of lengths, shapes and colors but you should choose one that has a lean cut so that it is not too bulky. A single-buttoned trench is also a lot more slimming than a double-breasted style.
You have to be very careful about length as well, especially if you are shorter, as a coat that is too long makes you look as if you are drowning in a sea of fabric. A length that is good for most people is just below the knee ó or, if you are more petite, about four fingers above your knee.
