When it comes to choosing efficient outerwear, your selection should be sturdy, versatile, and functional. One item that consistently matches this criteria is the classic trench coat!
Aside from a fashionable appearance, these pieces often come equipped with helpful features, such as packability, adjustability, and water-resistance. They have a timeless look that will never go out of style and you can easily play them up or down to your liking.
With the weather gradually getting cooler, now is the perfect time to work a trench coat into your fall and winter travel wardrobe.

Even if you’re only traveling with a carry-on, you can easily pack your trench coat into a packing cube without any issues.
Check out our six easy trench coat outfits for this season:
Trench Coat Outfit for Paris
Less is more when it comes to Parisian street style. A trench coat is simple and classic as is and as a result doesn’t have to be dressed up too much. Simply complement it with pieces that are equally as classic, such as a striped boatneck top and sleek black skinny jeans.
Fine gold earrings act as dainty but glitzy touches while a swipe of red lipstick is a classic and quintessentially Parisian finishing touch.

Trench Coat Outfit for London
If there’s anything that’s an absolute must to bring along with you on your trip to London, it would be a trench coat. After all, English-based Burberry has made the piece rather iconic!
These coats are investment pieces but they will last you for years and years, if not a lifetime. Their high quality feel along with the fact that English weather is known for being on the unpredictable side makes a trench an easy must-have for a trip over the pond.
If your budget allows for it, work a classic plaid Burberry scarf into your look as well (although there are plenty of cheaper duplicates out there if you’re looking to spend less). A sturdy and comfortable pair of waterproof boots will keep you protected against the elements while you take in the many sights of the city.

Trench Coat Outfit for Tokyo
Whether you’re walking around the streets of Ginza or waiting in line for the subway, it’s not uncommon to see Japanese women wearing trench coats. And just like the Parisians, they’re styled in ways that are both chic and timeless.
Tokyo street style is all about classic pieces assembled in a modern way. The fit is tailored and the outfits are simple yet fashionable. As such, make sure to keep your look clean, classic and modern.
Slim, ankle grazing pants, a streamlined top and some versatile nude flats will ensure that you fit right in with the local style scene.
Take inspiration from these fall fashion trends and update your look with one or two new pieces!
Trench Coat Outfit for Moscow
When in Moscow, dress as the Russians do! A trench coat in a bold red is a fabulous and fierce option to rock, pairing perfectly with the classic color of the country.
A pop of plaid complements the piece perfectly while a sleek LBD and black tights helps maintain balance. And of course, adjust your outfit accordingly if you’re going in the freezing winter (that means layer, layer, layer!)

Trench Coat Outfit for New York City
A trench in NYC is an easy city classic, taking you from museums to shows to restaurants in style. Perfect for a fall day out and about, this piece will keep you both stylish and warm as you explore the Big Apple.
Keep the rest of your look casual and cute with skinny jeans, Chelsea boots, and a neutral-toned jersey tee.
Are you obsessed with boots? We are! If you don’t already own a pair of chelsea boots you need to add them to your list.
Trench Coat Outfit for Stockholm
Stockholm (and much of Scandinavia in general) is known for having modern, classic, and muted street style. With primary characteristics being a neutral color palette and streamlined silhouettes, it’s easy to work a trench coat into this aesthetic as well.
Our top picks would be a navy trench coat paired with classic black jeans and a cool cream sweater. Accessories should be subdued yet stylish, such as a black and white grid scarf and fine gold accents.
