Are you looking for a trench coat that will keep you cozy and fashionable this season? In these delightful months of snow, fireplaces and carols, where do you find a coat that will make you shine as brightly as the North Star? I love coats. Though some women shirk coats because it adds bulk to their frame, I think that a good coat adds a bit of mystery to a woman, a “pow” factor.
A beautiful woman in good trench exudes a certain easy independence, with the right touch of arrogance. She makes you wonder: who is she? What secrets are hiding in those coat pockets? Want to find the right coat that won’t make you look like a bulky Christmas tree or a fashion disaster from last season’s closet? The following are the latest trench coat trends out on the runway this season.

When it comes to color, the trend today is all about bright and happy. Even designers like Rei Kawakubo, who likes to keep to his blacks and neutrals, have added pops of red in his coat designs.
Friendly tip: To avoid looking like a lollipop, match your brights with contrasting colors such black, gray and other solid neutrals.
For me, a good trench doesn’t go any shorter than knee-length. Trenches are supposed to wrap around you like a blanket and totally defeats the purpose if it doesn’t fully cover.
Trenches ala Sherlock Holmes are not the only shapes available. In fact, a lot of women’s trench coats this season have a little flare in them to define the waist. So, find one that best suits your figure.
