Leave it to Victoria Beckham to style a trench unconventionally and totally rock it. Wearing a trench as a dress is a creative wear to style your trench. Some keys to wearing your trench as dress. 

Make sure your trench is of the correct length. Too short and you’ll be giving a peep show. Too long and it will look like a coat rather then a dress. The trench I chose it perfect length and style. The pleated a-line bottom makes it easy to transform it into a dress. We switched the coat belt for a black bow belt to finish off the coat and completely transform it into a dress.

Make sure to wear something underneath. I recommend a dress slip or a form fitting dress. Just make sure whatever you wear under the trench is shorter so it doesn’t peek out under the trench.
