Hi there, I’m model Jaimie Hilfiger. I’m a fashion expert with a keen sense of style. And today, I’m going to show you the best way on how to wear a trench coat as a dress. Wearing a trench coat as a dress needs to be done in a very specific way to avoid looking too overdone. This look could totally work for daytime or evening when the weather is appropriate. The key is to not look like a flasher, and to avoid looking like someone who has nothing underneath. The first thing that you need to do is to make sure you clench the belt very tightly around your waist, like I’m doing here. You might even need to tie it twice. This will make your waist look smaller, which will really accentuate a slimmer figure. And also, this will cause the coat to flare out at the end, like I have here, which is essential. Next, make sure the coat is length appropriate, which covers your backside. If the coat is a bit too short, you could pair, like, a camisole dress underneath, like I have here, to make sure you cover up everything that’s essential. Lastly, pair the look with heels, and you’re good to go. For more style tips, follow me on Twitter @JaimieHilfiger. And, I want to say a huge thank you to Pistol & Stamen for letting us film here. Thanks for watching, bye bye!
