I’ve always wanted a trench coat but for some reason never owned one. Being a core essential to a classic wardrobe I’m still surprised I’ve never had one in my wardrobe before. Every year it’s been on my wish list and yet I’ve never added one.
I think it’s mostly due to never really finding the right one. And now that I try to only shop from small makers or brands with a sustainable approach, well, the market is really small.
Tailored Coats from AGENdA by July
What you’ve probably noticed from the pictures here is that I’ve finally found the one! A classic, simple, oversized, beautiful trench coat. It’s a spectacular trench coat really. Comfortable, heavy yet not too heavy. Perfect with a sweater on a cold fall day or worn into the winter months with a sweater, scarf, and flannel top.
I love the length, the color, the aesthetic. I enjoy that it’s not structured. Not form fitting. Classic but not preppy. Minimal and chic yet still so classic.
The brand who makes this lovely trench is AGENdA by July. Made for women with sustainability and classic essentials in mind. The founder, July, saw that there weren’t sustainably and well made tailored coats for women so decided to create them herself. And I’m so happy she did.
This coat comes in beige, petal, cobalt and olive. It also comes with straps to create a more structured sleeve as well as a waist belt. I styled it here without the belt for a more relaxed look but it looks great with the belts as well. As far as size, I’m wearing a size 1. I’d recommend sizing down as it has an oversized fit.
Overall, this coat is a closet investment. A closet staple. Something to hold on to forever. If you’re looking for a simple yet relaxed trench for the season, definitely check out this brand.
