A basic trench coat is the perfect piece to have for those cooler days. But I often find that they can be quite boxy and unflattering when they are just thrown on. A lot of people have told me that they either wear a trench and don’t even bother what’s underneath since it tends to cover their outfit or I’ve had people tell me they avoid this classic piece because they don’t know how to wear it without looking frumpy!

1. Fold your sleeves to the middle of your forearm

2.Push the fold you create up towards your elbow

3. Tie the belt in the back to cinch the jacket

Well with these 3 simple steps you can transform your trench into a more tailored and figure flattering piece that you will never hesitate to wear!

    Oh my goodness, AGREE. So many women don’t seem to know how to wear a simple trench like this. It instantly chicifys any outfit. (Yes, i just said chicify)

  • I’ve always done the die (btw works great as well when you are pregnant/post baby and the coat doens’t close quite the way you were hoping 😉 ) but never thought about the sleeves – definitely incorporating that one. great tip!
