A good trench coat is one of those timeless pieces that every woman should have in her wardrobe.  They can be styled up or down, are flattering for different shapes and sizes and are great for wearing during those transitions between seasons (or year-round depending on where you live!).  


I recently purchased this Darian Satin Maxi Coat from Want My Look and have been wearing it with (literally) everything.  [Note that this coat is actually maxi/floor length.  I had mine hemmed because I’m a short gal and found it more flattering at this length on me.]  This particular coat is currently on sale for $129.99.  It’s a little steep but it’s something I know I will get my money’s worth out of.  I look at it as an investment – at least that’s what I tell myself!  

Keep reading below for styling tips and some more budget-friendly options for all sizes!


Here I styled it with a black skirt, bodysuit and over the knee boots for a sexy look.  




You may also remember me wearing it at the track where I paired it with black ripped up skinnies for a more casual (and mommy-friendly) look.  You could go even more casual with some comfy boyfriend jeans and a tee shirt and be totally stylish.  


A long jacket is so versatile and really takes your look up a notch.  You should definitely consider adding one to your closet if you don’t already have one!  Here are some other budget-friendly trench coats and some suggestions for styling the looks above (including plus size)!
