The Trench coat is one…

… of the most versatile garments in my wardrobe. It can be worn classic and elegant or casual sporty. The trench coat can be styled with everything. Today I would like to share my journey on how I found my model which I love so much. I wear my coat throughout all seasons.

How I have found my perfect trench coat

To be honest, it was really a journey to find my perfect trench coat. Due to budget, I have started with a trench coat from Mango. It was a nice coat but I was not loving it. After one season I was on the hunt for the next one. Searching online delivers you a wide range of varieties. Hallhuber had one from in a pale pink. It was love at the first sight, but unfortunately, the pale pink was hard to style.

I was always dreaming of a Burberry trench coat. Six years ago I decided to save up and get a proper consultation at Burberry. The sales associate was very patient and presented the different classic models. I got the chance to try different styles and colors.

At the end they I fell in love with a model which was out of stock in my size in the Frankfurt boutique. They have ordered my size and 5 days later I got a call that my coat is ready for collection.

What to keep in mind when buying a trench coat

When you plan to invest in a trench coat you should keep the following in mind. A trench coat is a timeless piece. The model should be classic and simple.
