There’s nothing quite as polished and practical as a trench coat. It’s the ultimate forever piece in your wardrobe and a lightweight jacket that is perfect for the in-between weather during the shoulder seasons of Spring and Autumn. And while there’s no shortage of styling inspiration, the classic style benefits from updates and tweaks with changing seasons.

Cue the Drape Trench Coat from Everlane and it’s a beauty. It has a slightly longer, more relaxed fit than traditional options, but it still maintains a classic look. I’ve got this trench in black, sandstone and green balsam (a brighter and cool-toned khaki shade) and while I was initially apprehensive that the oversized silhouette would overwhelm my 5’2” frame, when worn it plays with proportions in a way that is very flattering and of-the-moment.

The Everlane Drape Trench Coat is made of a cotton and lyocell mix which gives the fabric its drape (it’s worth noting that it’s not water resistant like traditional trench coats). The fabric is thick and durable but it’s buttery soft to the touch, unlike its predecessor. Design wise, the Drape Trench Coat is double breasted, features an exaggerated collar, side pockets and is a slightly oversized fit. It hits me past the knees and is a great midi-length.

For reference I took a size XS (I’m a typical AU 8) and the trench hits me past the knees. The sleeves sit just past my wrists and while in usual circumstances I would usually get my tailor to shorten the arms, I haven’t thought it necessary for this trench as I’m happy with how the sleeves look when folded up. I also think I could have opted for a size XXS but I’m content with how it sits on me.

It’s a piece that I’ve enjoyed wearing both to the office and on weekends and it has been perfect for the current transitional weather.
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Which color among the black, green and grey would you recommend?
I think black, for versatility. But if you have enough black in your wardrobe then the coloured versions are also really great!
