The beige trench coat is an iconic piece—a symbol of timelessness, structure, and high fashion all at once. When wet weather calls for something resistant to moisture, nothing is more appropriate than the classy trench. It’s no surprise, then, that its story is steeped in history.
The desire for functional outerwear reached dizzying heights when, during the early 19th century, military personnel and civilians alike wore rubberized, waterproof cotton garments to lock out the rain. With innovation came improved designs that employed sweat-proof, breathable, odorless materials designed to wick away moisture while repelling water. During World War I, however, it was clear that camouflaged uniforms were necessary for soldiers’ safety—essentially, protective garments that they could wear in the trenches.
And so the remarkable trench coat as we know it today was born. Over the years it has undergone thousands of makeovers, and the modern variation is a clear reflection of that multifaceted and versatile spirit that makes it such an enduring wardrobe essential for both men and women.
Whether you favor the reliability of a simple midi-length or want to experiment with a fit-and-flare silhouette, you’ll find dozens of ways to make this coat work for you. The beauty of this inimitable piece is that it’s easy to wear with everything. It’s a must for that often confusing period between winter and spring when temperatures aren’t quite cold, yet call for something decidedly cozier than a lightweight sweater. It’s equally chic in warm weather over a dress and a pair of high heels.
The standard trench coat is lightweight, neatly tailored, and typically some variation of beige. Contemporary takes on this traditional piece veer dramatically in another direction—evidence, perhaps, of the coat’s ability to take on fresh personas every decade and still emerge a clear winner no matter how the fashion landscape unfolds.
