Step Into 2020 in Statement Outerwear – Invest in a Tailor-Made Women’s Trench Coat

With 2020 only a few days away now most of us are browsing online shopping portals, lusting over new gorgeous fashion we dream of wearing during those first few weeks back at the office to really kick off the new year in style! And currently, we’re on the lookout for a new statement coat to turn a few heads (ok, that and a new handbag or two…a blazer, shoes and a new chic dress too!).

Investing in a new coat is just the thing we need for a stylish work-wardrobe refresh; one that will make us feel empowered. Designed to make women feel confident, feminine and sophisticated, the trench coat will always be a winning go-to staple.

Trench coats have come a long way from their original use as coats worn in trench warfare by British troops during World War I, and today they’re mostly known for being lightweight and fashionable alternatives to sporty rain coats on misty days. Still, finding one can be a tricky task and today’s trench coats still tend to look like their original design. So, if you are in the mood for something fun and new (perhaps with colour and a hood), and want to look extraordinary and stand out among others, then why not do something a tad different and treat yourself to a tailored trench coat. One that is timeless and one that won’t make you look like a walking cliché.

So for the new year we’ll say the key to a decent and fashionable trench coat in your wardrobe is to get one specially tailor-made for you. It will make you look trendy yet fun and vibrant! 

A women’s trench coat will always fit your figure but now you can also explore your creativity and bring out the fashion designer in you. Here’s a step-by-step guide how to get a trench coat tailormade only for you, and that too online!

Go Online

Online facility of tailoring clothes give you a respite as you don’t have to go manually to a tailor, stand in a boring long queue, nag him or her to meet the deadline, constantly worry about whether the coat will be delivered on time etc etc…. The entire process of manually tailoring clothes is simply outdated and messy. Sorry but it’s true. And what’s the use in that, when the online facility lets you get the same trench coat, probably with more variety, and more efficiently too speeding up the entire process and what’s more, you’ll be your very own designer along the way. All you need is to select the fabric, pick the right design, colour put your measurements and voila! Your very own tailored trench coat is ready for you to sport on the go. And you don’t have to pick it up from the tailor’s place as they will deliver you within the deadline.

Now, let’s check out the easy steps of how to get a perfectly designed trench coat.

Step 1 – design the trench coat 

Choose the length either long or shorter, whether you want it single or double-breasted, then ensure the fit and gun flaps, sleeve ribbons and that the shoulder epaulettes are in place. You do not necessarily add all of these and can choose to use one or two, or may add even more than the mentioned items. The design of a trench coat reflects your personality, so you design it the way you want. Also, the tailored trench coat gives you the perfect opportunity to customize it the way you want as you are not limited to the few choices provided by the readymade trench coats.

Remember, the length is a crucial concern of a trench coat. For a short height woman, a longer trench coat will make her look even shorter. However, make sure that the trench coat is not too short or barely touching your waist. This will make it look like a jacket and the entire appeal will be lost.

Step 2 – Select the fabric 

There is a wide variety of fabrics and colours. You may choose a classic beige or white fabric for a more formal and elegant appeal. Pick a bold red or trendy pink to draw everyone’s attention.

Step 3 – Put your measurements 

This is the best part because it will make the coat designed especially for YOU! Design your tailored trench coat and become the fashionista you have always wanted to be.
