First, let me give you the history of how the trench coat came to be an essential clothing item in your wardrobe.
Both Burberry and Aquascutum lay claim to inventing the trench coat. Thomas Burberry, the inventor of gabardine fabric, submitted a design for an army officer’s raincoat to the United Kingdom War Office in 1901.
During WWII, other nations jumped onto the trench coat idea, and provided their soldiers with this innovative and versatile coat, taking this fashion to every country in Europe.
It was Humphrey Bogart’s Rick Blaine in Casablanca and Peter Sellers’ Inspector Clouseau who by wearing the coat in the public eye, helped the trench coat gain its place as a timeless piece in the fashion industry.
Now, here is some inspiration for a perfect outfit for a Fall night out, a brightly colored trench coat that will be a perfect match for your LBD.
