I’m usually a blazer girl, but there is something so stylish about adding a trench coat to simple outfits – I love how it immediately feels effortless and cool. My go-to brand for affordable and stylish trench coats is Topshop. Not only does Topshop offer high-quality, trendy pieces at great prices, but they always do such a great job putting a modern spin on classic styles so that it’s perfectly updated for the current season. For instance, this trench that I recently picked up at Nordstrom.
The loose, drapey fit gives it a street style feel, which looks amazing with denim, dresses, and everything in between. The tie cuffs and oversized lapels add a nice update. It’s lightweight enough for the warmer weather but can also be layered for cooler temps, so you can wear it throughout the year.
It also comes with a flattering waist belt that brings sophistication to any work or play ensemble. Here are some of the most stylish ways to wear a trench coat in the summer:
1. High-Waisted Skinnies + Bodysuit + Minimalist Heels
Topshop makes some of my favorite jeans, like this one here. They fit super snug at first but then really conform to your body for the most flattering fit. They’re great for pairing with a simple bodysuit – I’m obsessed with square neck styles right now. Top it off with a trench coat for the ultimate cool factor.
2. Denim Cutoffs + Silk Cami + Kitten Heels
To achieve an effortless summer look, layer a trench coat over your favorite denim cutoffs. Pair this look with an animal print cami or a plain white tee. Complete the look with kitten heels for a chic Parisian vibe.
3. Silk Blouse + Leather Pants + Pumps
You guys know I love a minimalistic look with a touch of edge. The drapey nature of the trench is perfect for leather trousers and pumps. If leather pants are too stuffy for you right now, try a pair of leather shorts. I love the tailored look of this one, which also works with pumps and trench.
If you’re looking for a mix of modern wardrobe staples and trendy pieces, definitely check out the Topshop collection at Nordstrom! You can shop the brand online or in-stores and get free shipping on every order.
