Women's Trench Coat: The White Style For 2023
The classic fall wardrobe staple is getting updated in white this season.
This season’s standout clothing staple is, without a doubt, the fall trench coat. This iconic garment originates from the military, where they started wearing trench coats because of their comfortable and practical design. Soldiers loved the durable, water-resistant gabardine cotton fabric that was able to protect them from the harsh weather.
Women began wearing trench coats after World War II when there was a surplus of military clothing. They were popularized by Hollywood stars like Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, and Audrey Hepburn - who can forget the final scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s where the actress has a rain-soaked kiss, wearing nothing but a trench coat?
Trench Coat Must-Have 2023: Have fun with it!
While trench coats from years past had a solidly vintage style, Brembati is remixing this classic coat’s silhouette, color palette, and even its lining. Neutral hues, minimal proportions, and unexpected details define the fall trench coat vibe.
Despite often falling on the business-casual end of the outerwear, trench coats are incredibly versatile. A trench coat can elevate your favorite pair of blue jeans or keep a sleek look for your date nights. For daytime, if your office style is comfort-forward, look for a lightweight fall trench coat in a neutral color so you can layer your best casual-chic separates underneath.
Monochromatic Style: White Trench Coat
As much as we love a classic camel trench coat, shades of white are the hue to watch this fall. Whether it be bone, cream, snow, or oat - a white trench coat certainly makes a statement and feels so oh-so-on-trend this season.
For the Pre-Fall 2023 collection, Brembati designs an off-white single-breasted style with a minimal and modern appeal. Made in Italy from supple faux leather, the design features a classic shirt collar, wide welt pockets, and a front concealed placket. The patterned fabric lining decorates the garment, adding an iconic note.

Brembati Style Notes: Keep the look under your trench coat simple and elevated. Think faux-leather white skirt and neutral knitwear layered over a classic white shirt. Or add a pop of colour with a patterned blouse or mini dress for a chic fall outfit that can take you just about anywhere.
