What is a Trench Coat?

A trench coat is a type of clothing made from durable, waterproof fabric. It was initially constructed from gabardine, a worsted wool cloth that had been woven before being waterproofed with lanolin. Trench coats are typically double-breasted, have ten buttons on the front, large lapels, a storm flap, and button-closed pockets, and are belted at the waist with a self-belt.
Although many trench coats include detachable wool liners for added warmth, they are normally not as warm as an overcoat. The trench coat was primarily worn as a windbreaker or as a rain jacket. Trench coats are now widely accessible and have established themselves as a fashion essential.

When do we wear them?

The greatest times to wear a trench coat are during transitional seasons like fall and monsoon since they can block off light rain but not much of a harsh winter chill. For a layered style that adds extra warmth when wearing a trench coat, layer lightweight items like long-sleeved cotton t-shirts, cotton-wool blend sweaters, button-down shirts, and trousers or jeans. A trench coat is also a chic choice for evening, particularly for ladies because the belted trench coat defines your waist while the silhouette adds drama and flair.
