When we saw this trench coat from Club Monaco, we fell head over heels in love with the color and sale price. The long belt adds an eye-catching detail, making it just the right blend of simple and chic. The light yellow also offers an unexpected pop of color in a sea of predictable beiges and tans. It’s the perfect accompaniment for any of your looks this autumn – and for many more autumns to come. Keep reading to see how we styled it!

The number of stylish ways to wear a trench coat is practically infinite, so we’ve curated three outfits for you to try with your trench right now.

Look #1 : Loungewear

Loungewear is having a major moment right now and we never want it to come to an end. Whoever decided to make comfy clothing a trend was a genius and we’re forever indebted to them. But, we know it can be tricky to keep even your most-loved loungewear feeling fresh, especially if you’ve been wearing it every day for the last few months. One way to revamp an outfit that’s becoming a bit dull is to pair it with a seasonal staple like – you guessed it – a trench coat! Layering one over your cozy loungewear will instantly elevate it, creating an effortlessly chic look that you can put together in no time.

Look #2: Knitwear

In need of a sophisticated ensemble? You can never go wrong styling knitwear with a trench. The trench coat’s tailored silhouette paired with the minimal luxury of the knit midi dress is a match made in heaven. While the elements of this outfit are simple on their own, they work together to create an overall look that is both polished and put together. Coupling neutral tones like ivory and beige with this sunshiny yellow trench also adds an element of brightness which allows you to wear this look for both work and play. To create a bit of extra structure, use a belt to cinch the waist.

Look#3: Snake & Satin

If you’re on the hunt for a way to make a statement this fall, look no further. This fit mixes contrasting textures like a feminine blouse with a fierce faux leather pant, which adds an element of interest to the otherwise ordinary trench coat. When you throw in a bold print, like snakeskin, it takes the entire look up a notch and makes for a compelling combination. You’ll definitely have all eyes on you.

    I clicked so fast on this post – trench coats are one of my fav items, I collect them! I have lighter ones for summer, heavier ones for winter…my goal is to have maxi trenches in metallics and patent leather!
    Thanks for your tips hon – I’m especially liking how you styled your trench with a skirt and foxy boots! Xo
