Thomas Burberry created history by incorporating the military clothing into mainstream fashion.

KEEPING UP WITH THE TRENCH COATS TREND

The trench coat trend has been constantly on a roll. The silhouettes, lengths, colours and materials have all undergone a change. It only makes sense to know what is best for you. And also, what all is possible when it comes to styling it appropriately.

Either pick your coat in a floral or paisley print. Or wear a floral long skirt underneath. The idea is to keep it feminine so that the rough military feel can be diminished beautifully.

4. BELT IT RIGHT

Wear it undone or tie it up in an artistic manner. The belt of your trench coat is something you can really play with. By all means, try a contrasting colour or buy a metallic belt that goes well with it. That way, you would be free to experiment and still be able to do justice to the classic element.

5. REMEMBER THE ORIGINS
