A trench coat is a classic piece you're sure to have in your closet forever, and we don't take that lightly. When identifying something as a closet staple, it's important to look for two things. First, is it a piece that serves more than one purpose and can wear well with multiple looks? Second, is it trendy or a classic piece we will cherish for many years to come? Endlessly versatile, a trench coat fully fits this bill, and depending on whether you're looking to splurge or save, you have so many different options to choose from. 

Let’s talk fit: A trench coat can be form-fitting for a more done look or oversized for a grungier, undone look. Long or short, single, or double-breasted, lined or unlined, the options are truly endless, and we’ve rounded up 13 of our favorites for every style and budget. Keep scrolling to find 13 trench coat outfits to add to your fall wardrobe.

All Bundled Up

Heavyweight to keep you warm and cozy on a crisp fall day, this double-breasted trench coat is a closet staple. Pair it with vegan leather pants and a chunky knit sweater for stylish layers.

Sleek Leather Look

Vegan leather is having a major moment for fall, and this classic trench is versatile enough to wear with all your looks. Buttery soft to the touch and cinched at the waist for extra detail, we’ve paired the style with a plaid top and patent pants for an edgier trench coat outfit that's ready for a night out.

Oversized and Off-Duty

No need to steal your partner’s jacket anymore—we found the perfect oversized trench. Pair this style with a denim jumpsuit and combat boots for an easy three- piece look.

Simple Statement

We love a good Zara find, and a full-cut trench leaves endless layering options. We've opted for a multicolored pastel cardigan to complement our neutral jacket choice.

Elevated Denim

Take your classic denim jacket to the next level in this patterned trench style from Akira. Pair it with coordinating denim booties and corduroy pants for the ultimate on-trend trench coat outfit.

Statement Luxe

If you're looking for an investment piece, Coach has just what you need. Featuring the work of artist Jean Michel Basquiat, this jacket offers a creative and thought-provoking moment. Pair it with classic black riding boots and a leather bag to complete your trench coat outfit.

Center of Attention

Bring the sunshine with this neon trench coat from Christopher John Rogers. Pair the sunny lemon-lime color with a simple black dress so the attention is on the jacket.

Embrace Your Wild Side

The classic trench is back and elevated in a fun zebra print for fall. Pair it with a button-up blouse and camel pants for a sophisticated everyday trench coat outfit.

Military Sophistication

Military-inspired with engraved gold buttons is our top choice for a classic black trench coat. Pair it with low-heeled loafers and plaid pants for an elegant look.

Double the Fun

With a shearling collar, this trench coat outfit is giving us two looks in one. Pair it with a sweater and denim, then finish off with shearling booties for style and comfort. 

Pretty in Pleats

There's something so romantic about a piece with pleating. Cut in a tailored fit, we’ve layered this trench coat over a flowing dress with a coordinating bag.

Velvet Moment

A single-breasted trench coat is a great everyday piece to throw on over any look. In this case, a velvet piece adds dimension. We've paired with printed pants and a sweater for everyday comfort and fashion.

The Finishing Touch

Lightweight and made to be worn either open or closed, this double-breasted trench coat is versatile and oversized for a relaxed fit. Pair with heels and a slinky dress for a night out.
