Closet Essential - The Trench Coat

History of the Trench Coat

Did you know that the classic trench coat came about for purely functional purposes as opposed to fashion.  It was originally created by Burberry as a coat for British soldiers to wear during World War 1.  It was made of a tightly woven gabardine fabric to be resistant to water and just long enough to keep rain out of the soldier’s boots.

Trench Coat as a Closet Essential

Now a classic trench coat is one of the most versatile pieces a woman can own and transitions seamlessly from fall to spring.  I currently own three trench coats.  A classic khaki one in tall from Banana Republic online that hits me just at my knees. A shorter khaki version in tall that stops at my thighs from Old Navy online and a more trendier white trench coat that I purchased on uber sale and off the rack from the Banana Republic Factory Store.  I often get comments or emails from fellow tall girls inquiring about where they can find a trench coat in tall sizes.  Recently while online browsing I came across a few and thought it might be helpful to you to share what I’ve found  in case you are currently in the market for one, or two yourself.
