Heute krame ich für euch ein älteres aber noch nicht veröffentliches Outfit raus, welches wir im November in LA geshootet haben. Ich trage hier meinen geliebten Trenchcoat. Denn auch wenn das aktuelle Wetter nicht gerade zum Trenchcoat-Tragen einlädt, die aktuellen Frühlingskollektionen sind voll mit tollen Trenchmodellen, die man sich schon mal für die kommenden wärmeren Tage sicher könnte! Trench ist nämlich nicht gleich Trench und da muss erstmal die perfekte Form für sich finden.
This look is actually from when we were in LA back in November. I’m wearing my beloved trenchcoat. Though we don’t have quite the perfect trenchcoat weather over here in Germany I’m already seeing lots of nice ones in the Spring collections that are currently dropping. Nice ones to save for upcoming warm days. One trench is not as the other after all and it’s not easy to find the perfect fit.
The perfect fit for me is: oversized – but not too much that it overwhelmes me. You get the right look when the shoulders are slightly dropped, the sleeves wide and the overall fit is not as tailored. In terms of the length the coat should be at least long enough to cover the knees. Well, for most women a trenchcoat two sizes up would work to achieve this look. But due to my size the coat would easily touch the ground. But I found my perfect trenchcoat in Korea. Because even though the Koreans are known to be the „taller Asians“, the clothes there all had the perfect fit for me – just like this trenchcoat. Now more and more brands seem to get the idea of a good oversized trenchcoat. I linked some of the good ones as an alternative! How do you like your trenchcoat? Oversized, long, short, fitted?

trench loveNothing is more classic and versatile than a trench. But with this wardrobe staple it’s all about the perfect fit. I prefer my trenchcoat to be oversized – but not too big and bulky looking either – as I’m very petite. The shoulder seams should be slightly dropped to get that slouchy look and the coat should be long enough to cover your knees.
