Trench dress: a perfect combo for summer

Not a trench coat, not yet a dress, this clothes item has won over the fashion world as a perfect blend of classiness and casualness. Another advantage is that you can put it on either way: as an additional piece of outerwear, just as did Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany's," or as a solo self-sufficient costume. This fungible duality has given designers full freedom to experiment boldly.

The materials may range from more autumn-spring- like suede and leather to the more lightweight viscose. Givenchy found a compromise between the summer hotness and thick garments in a hybrid of iridescent leather and a short-sleeve style.

Although the trench dresses color palette is predominantly in variations of beige, some brands departed from this to-become- tradition and presented their rethought visions. Always colorful Salvatore Ferragamo added deep blue tones to its loose model, while Arthur Arbesser chose vivid yellow for its bathrobe-fit piece. For those who are tired of monotone silhouettes, there is a good option with floral patterns, as the ones on the JW Anderson trench-dress with a black back. If you do not want to experiment with the primary color, have a look at Junya Watanabe spring-summer 2020 collection. She offers to consider accentuating the lower part with either fuchsia leggings or sporty neon-lemon sneakers.

Rochas broke another unspoken trench rule and created the unbelted straight-style version. Joining the innovators club, Sportmax also made its ultra-mini free-for-all piece, with an airy train flapping behind.

Trench coat's universality in the fabrics and designs may even make it a seasonless garment - so, you can wear it optionally throughout the whole year. We collected for you some of the coolest and fanciest models for greater confidence.
