As summer is coming to an end or may be officially over (not so certain about that with the weather changes), it’s time to get serious about the new fall/winter 2017 season. And for that occasion, why not get a new trench coat now since this fashion piece is one of those items that every woman should own. Here are 5 reasons why:

1. The trench coat is history 

Practically the word Burberry is synonymous with trench coat as it was claimed to be invented by two British luxury clothing manufacturers, Burberry and Aquascutum. However, the coat hasn’t such a glamourous heritage since it was originally an item of clothing for Army officers, developed prior to the war but adapted for use in the trenches of the First World War, therefore its name.

2. The trench coat is timeless.

Nowadays the trench coat has remained fashionable due to its classic shape and timeless appeal. While the traditional color was khaki, newer versions come in many colors now which makes it perfect to combine with either a glamorous dress or some cool ripped jeans.

3. The trench coat is weather resistant.

The trench coat is able to block all the unwelcome cold and wet air – yet isn’t too hot like a big winter coat. There’s no similar fashion piece which keeps you warm in misty fall mornings (and evenings… which tend to come earlier and earlier) but won’t annoy you during the mid of the day, when the sun reminds you of the passing summer.

4. The trench coat is versatile.

This it-piece is usually double-breasted with ten front buttons and belted at the waist with a self-belt, as well as having straps around the wrists that also buckle. Given this many details it is easy to wear it in different styles. Wear it open to create a loose fit or use the belt to accentuate your waist.

5. The trench coat is a wardrobe staple.

It’s a trendy outerwear piece for transitioning from summer to fall, suits all shapes and sizes and is adaptable with all sorts of different parts from your wardrobe. So, grab your trench and top your look off with this fashionable piece, proving that a good outfit is made even better by adding the right accessories.
