Trench coats are easily my most-worn outerwear items, and for years I’ve been seeking a warm weather option. While I own a few cropped trench coats, none have proved as versatile as their knee-length counterpart, until the Short Trench Coat (sold out in “light stone”; similar option on sale here) pictured here came along. I think what separates this little jacket from the rest is the swing coat silhouette (unfitted but not oversized) and the stretchy mid-weight material that maintains its shape well.
Unlike hip-length jackets, which can have a truncating effect on the petite, a (slightly-longer-than-)waist length jacket will pair well with both cropped and full length pants, as well as skirts and dresses with shorter hemlines.
