Why you need it in your wardrobe: Even on a rainy day, you want to look fashionable when running errands or going on an interview; the right trench coat will complement a variety of looks.
Purchasing Tips: Since you will want to be able to wear your trench coat over a variety of clothing, including your tailored suit, be sure not to purchase a coat that is too tight or fitted. A trench coat that fits snugly won’t complement your look and will make you look sloppy.
Color is important: Try to select a neutral color, like classic tan or black. A bright pink trench coat will be cute and fashionable, but you will be limited to what you can wear with it and where you wear it.
