As the temperature cools and a dusting of frost appears on the streets outside, a whole new set of seasonal heroes are making their way into the spotlight. Of all the winter buys to get excited about—yes, there’s a lot—two items, in particular, have been the talk of the Who What Wear team lately: trench coats and loafers. And they just so happen to look incredibly chic when styled together.
Their shared timelessness and versatility make them logical companions; both re-emerge as winter wardrobe mainstays year after year, and both add instant polish to every outfit—precisely the trait we love most in clothing. In tandem, then, you can easily achieve double the polish. That’s the kind of math I can get on board with.
And we’re not the only ones who feel so strongly about this classic combination. Already, a quick stroll through Instagram proves the popularity of trench coats and loafers for yet another winter. It’s like all the fashion enthusiasts of the world have united in their love for these trend-defying staples, and we’re inviting you to join in.
Below, you’ll find six simple trench-coat-and-loafer outfits worth bookmarking for the season ahead, courtesy of some of our most-trusted influencers. Enjoy!
