Trench Coats for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: For Cool Weather

Quote of the day: “Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” – Henry Van Dyke

As we continue our series featuring three different varieties of trench coats, I’ll style them to cover up for cooler weather. This is the type of temperature that we usually think about when we imagine wearing our trenches. Some chill in the air, yet not the biting cold of a deep freeze!

Of course, for most of us, when the weather gets cooler, we add on layers. And this was exactly my thought for these outfits in some form or other. You could certainly just wear your coat as an additional piece when you go outside, or you can style it as part of your look!

To see how we wore these same coats for a warmer day, check out that post, here.

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Not so long ago, I saw a couple bloggers talk about yellow and pink together. It certainly isn’t a combination I would gravitate towards, so I thought I’d try it with my yellow sleeveless trench coat and pink faux leather jacket.

When I purchased these shoes online a couple years ago, they appeared more beige on my monitor screen, but in reality they are a blush pink! I wasn’t sure I’d really wear them much, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised!

Since I was going for yellow & pink, I was going to keep everything else white. However, I found this corset like blouse in the closet that I’ve had for over 6 years! I used to wear it under blazers for work! I thought the darker colors might ground the look better?

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: I wanted to try layering Nancy’s shorter trench coat over a tunic. And when we pull out the tunic, the leggings had to come out too!

The floral pin my mom made for Nancy from leftover material when she shortened one of Nancy’s skirts many years ago. I’ve told you how my mother hates to waste material, right?

And check out Nancy’s earrings—it almost looks like they came with the tunic top! In the house, when we picked them out, they just looked dark brown.

Nancy’s clowning around to make a spoof of her brother!! He thinks it’s silly when people pose for a picture, so he puts his arms up in the air instead!!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: So one of the variations on my mom’s trench coat is it has this removable fur collar. Since we are showing a cooler weather outfit, I thought it’d be fun to attach it!

The riding boots are navy in color. Mom wore them for our Riding Boots series here, here & here! She was looking for a navy pair many years ago but couldn’t find any. So instead, she bought a light grey pair and had them professionally dyed for only $15. Smart, huh?

Since the outfit is relatively neutral, I added in a large, colorful necklace.

The fur, one of the add-ons of her trench coat, comes up pretty high on mom’s neck, thus I kept the earrings smaller, but colorful!!

Here, I rounded up some shorter versions of the trench coat:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Loving these coats all over again! Yours makes a stunning layering piece, Nancy’s looks adorable with the leopard tunic and Charlotte’s is so appealing with the fur collar added.

  • Great picks! I love that yellow vest!

    Don’t forget to join the Fashion Frenzy Linkup this week, hope to see you there!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Annessa!!
      I did put our post in your linkup—I used a photo of my mom this time!!

  • PetiteOver40

    You ladies look so elegant in your trench coats here and it’s because of all the little touches you added to each look. I love it when things pull together to create a cohesive outfit — and you’ve achieved that for all three of you with all the details you added.

    I had never thought about having a pair of boots died to a color I was looking for! But I’ll remember it going forward!

    Also, Nancy’s spoof is hilarious! It made me giggle out loud.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t Nancy funny?? It does get quite mundane just standing there when we’re taking pictures!! We might as well have fun too!!
      Thanks for the love, Sherry!!

  • So fun to see three completely different styles of trench coats. I really like the fur add on collar of your mom’s and thought it was such a smart idea to have her boots dyed. I hear rumors yellow and pink are supposed to be in this season. I like how you have incorporated a muted version of this color palette into your look today. Nancy’s neutral look really caught my eye this time around. Great looks all around!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jennie!!
      I always love a fur collar on coats & jackets—they just seems so snazzy!!
      I really love Nancy’s short trench—I mean, maybe it’s not totally practical in a downpour—but we’re really lucky here in Denver, that we don’t get many of those!!
      The pink & yellow is quite an interesting combination, don’t you think? When I first read about it, I wasn’t sure I’d like it—but it’s better than I thought!!
      Thanks for reading and happy Tuesday!

  • I’ve always thought trench coats look so cool, but as long as I live here in FL, I’ll never have the chance to wear/own one! Thanks for joining us at #FridayFrivolity again!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well feel free to come visit us in Colorado—you’ll have tons of chances to wear them then!! Ha ha!!
      Although living in Florida would be the perfect reason to get a sleeveless one—at least more rational than me buying mine!!

  • I really like the brightness of the yellow on you Jodie. This colour is fab on you. I love the coat that Charlotte is wearing (very glam) The fur looks lovely x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laurie!!
      I am very partial to yellow these last couple of years! But maybe that’s better than black, huh?

  • Jodie, these are all so great. I love the different versions of trench coats that you have chosen to style. And you all look so brilliant! Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thank you Shelbee for going to all the hard work of having the link up every week!!
      And I really appreciate your kind words!
      Happy weekend!!

  • omg the blue with the fur ! It’s everything

    Life is just Rosie

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Doesn’t the fur just add so much charm to it??
      Thanks for the kind words—I’ll tell mom you said that!!

  • Nancy’s short trench is so cute! Love her floral pin!

    Doused In Pink

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jill!!
      I think Nancy’s cropped trench is perfect for her—although it doesn’t cover as much for the warmth factor!!

  • Dawn Lucy

    I love the bright yellow and pale pink together! Two fabulous colors that I just can’t wear! Boo! You however look FAB!

    Thanks so much for linking up with Fun Fashion Friday!


    Dawn Lucy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It is a bummer you can’t wear those colors Dawn—so if ever by chance someone sends you something those colors, feel free to forward them to me–ha ha!!
      Happy Weekend!!

  • HJ

    Super cute, thanks for sharing! Love the style you ladies have!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much HJ!!

  • Melissa

    I love all 3 trench coats! But the yellow one is my favorite! You pulled pink and yellow beautifully

    Thanks for linking up with weekend wear

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Melissa!!
      Isn’t pink & yellow so interesting?

  • Kirsten Wick

    So great, love your trench vest Jodie. And I’m obsessed with all sorts of trenchcoats. Love, Kirsten x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kirsten!!
      My vest really stands out, huh? Sometimes a good thing….sometimes bad–ha ha!

  • Anna Marcus

    Jodie, once again, all three of you look absolutely fabulous. My favourites are your yellow number and Nancy’s fur trench.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Anna!!
      The fur really adds a nice touch, huh?

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. A trench coat is a wardrobe must-have. Great styling inspirations.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nicole!!
      It’s funny that I’ve never really had one before, but really it doesn’t rain much here!

  • These are all so cute, i love the blue one with the fur collar

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura!!

  • As much as I hate driving in coats, I love buying them and I especially like the sleeveless yellow trench.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Huh—never even thought about the fact they are hard to drive in. So many of the times, it’s so hot in the car with the sun shining in, that I take it off when I get in anyways!!
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  • We have been have a lot of rain around here lately so I have been wearing my trench coat with lots of layers undeath to keep me warm. This is great inspiration

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We hardly ever get rain here—and when we do it’s here and gone—thus the reason why I’m over 50 and just now getting a trench coat (although it’s not even really a trench!!). I guess it shows when you live different places, you need different things!!
      Thanks for stopping by Michelle!!

  • Tessy Onyia

    Hi Jodie, you look so so pretty! Can I just have your outfit? Gorgeous!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ohhh Tessy—that’s so nice to say—thanks!
      Of course—you may have it all!!

  • I think my favourite is yours Jodi, although Nancy is a close second with her great pose!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      And I’ve been coveting Nancy’s shoes too—not that I need another pair, but since we wear the same size at times, I may have to abscond these!!

  • Maria Flux

    I love the last one! The navy blue looks fabulous!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Maria—I think the collar makes it so fun!!

  • Gotta love a good trench! Love the yellow one.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jamie!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    These are all great! I love your sleeveless coat and how you are wearing it… I always see those when I’m shopping yet always wonder how I’d wear it. Love what you did here and it really works with the yellow. I had NO idea you could have boots dyed!! Love the blue!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Carrie—I’m the same way—I see something at the store and think, “will that work”—but I usually buy it and sometimes find out it doesn’t. Like when I first got this sleeveless trench, i vacillated with the thought of shortening it. But I think I’ll keep it long for now.
      Isn’t that a great idea to have boots dyed—I may not need it now, but it’s such a good piece of knowledge to have in your pocket!!
      Thanks for stopping by and happy thursday!

  • These all look great! I love your hair straight Jodie. x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma!!
      I love my hair straight too—but I’m also trying to appreciate my natural curl–it’s so hard!!

  • I wouldn’t gravitate toward yellow and pink either, but I love it!! Each of you look great!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Brooke!
      I was intrigued when I first saw this color combo—and I think it’s fun to try out new & different pairings!!

  • I love how everyone’s trench is so different! In love with the removable fur collar one!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t that one a standout? Thanks Tara!!

  • Judy Gramith

    I’m surprised that I like your sleeveless trench over a second jacket. Yellow and pink are pretty together and ultra feminine. I’d have done a tonal pink turtleneck instead of a print. T-necks or scarves are a major go to for me in the colder months because my long neck and broad shoulders just need the balance.
    Nancy’s combo is terrific and I love the fabric pin !
    Charlotte looks like a very sophisticated British duchess. The collar adds that touch of luxury. Your mom is quite the fashionista.
    Nice styling work Jodie!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jude!!
      Did you want to be in on the last one for Friday??? I’d love to have you join the party?

      • Judy Gramith

        Just don’t have time. Will explain in a text.
        Thankyou for the invitation!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          No problem at all!!
          You let me know whenever you want to join in!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    These are great, Jodie. I never think about styling my coat as part of my outfit. It always seems to be an after thought before I run out the door. This shows how you can actually take it to another level and use it as part of the whole ensemble. All three of these are very cute. Thanks for sharing. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amy….of course it all depends on where you going when you get dressed. If you’re going to work inside a building—then I don’t really style my coat as part of my outfit! But I do think about it when I go shopping—because I rarely want to carry it around all day!!
      Of course I do love a fun & interesting coat no matter what—my husband thinks I’m obsessed with this (and he’s probably right!!)

  • From your shoes to Nancy’s tunic and shoes and your mom’s stunning necklace…they stole the show in today’s looks!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Darlene!
      Don’t you just love Nancy’s new shoes? They are totally my fave and we got a great deal on them at DSW!!

  • I love the yellow and pink combo! All you ladies look great in a trench coat!
    Jeans and a Teacup

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jessica!!
      It is a different color combo–but easy to try!!

  • great outfits!!! Love that trench with the fur

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t the removable fur collar so nice?
      I have one for a blazer that is one of my faves!!
      Thanks so much for stopping by Stephanie!

  • I never wore yellow until this Summer. It is actually a nice color! I love trenchcoats, such a Classic piece!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t it a fab color!!
      It’s fun to try new things, right?
      Thanks for the love Nancy!!

  • Your mom is so smart! I’ve been looking for olive colored suede boots and didn’t even think I could dye them. Oh my gosh, problem solved! I love your vest and think you were right about having a darker colored shirt to ground the outfit. It might have all blended together if it was lighter colored. You ladies are always so fun!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Julia!!
      I know—-I never thought about having boots dyed!! I’ve dyed my own pants & blazer before, but it never crossed my mind about footwear!

  • I always love seeing the same thing styled with options, so it is fun to see you all dressed for different weather. Great layering!

      Thanks Amy!!
      I do wonder if readers get tired of seeing the same item in one week? But it does make planning my posts a little easier—I have a theme and can go from there!

  • Great looks! Pink and yellow are pretty together – I’ll have to try it sometime! I also really like Nancy’s shorter trench over the tunic! And how fantastic is the removable collar on your mom’s trench!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Andrea!!
      I was really surprised with this color combination! Definitely different!!
      Thanks for the nice sentiments–I know mom & Nancy really appreciate them!

  • Stevie Turner

    I love the long trench coats. Richie Sambora used to look good in one!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Okay–so you’re going to laugh, but I had to look up Richie Sambora!! Was he a crush for you Stevie? That’s so cute!!
      So do you have a long trench?

      • Stevie Turner

        Ha ha! Richie played guitar for Bon Jovi. Yes I used to have a big crush on him, especially when he wore his trench coat and hat! No I don’t have a long coat, as I’m on the short side and it would look mighty peculiar on me.

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Just remember—I’m short too—I think the fit makes all the difference!!

  • Queen of Rods

    Great tip on dyeing your mom’s boots. It’s hard to find much variety in boot color, and navy is a staple in my wardrobe 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t that so smart? I know it was quite a few years ago, so I wonder if it’d still be that inexpensive? But—a good option.
      I was just commenting to Tracey that I don’t have ANY navy footwear. And not a ton in my clothing either—since I’ve been steering away from black lately, I may have to invest in some navy (well, besides jeans)

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    I too saw yellow and pink paired together and liked the unusual combo. I to like the added interest of your top and the layering with the jacket. Nancy’s look is just so fun and she seems so spunky! Isn’t Mom a clever one to dye her own Navy footwear. I have a thing for Navy footwear myself.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think the store owner gave mom the idea to dye the boots—but I thought that was so smart.
      Do you realize, I don’t have any navy footwear? Shocking now that I think about it!! I might have to remedy that soon—ha ha!!

  • Bernadette Laganella

    I know I have said it before, but your Mom is quite the fashionista and inspiration. I like your new hair style.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Bernadette!
      My mom will be tickled pink that you said that!!
      My hair is thanks to my hair stylist—whenever I get it cut, I have her straighten it! For some reason, I never can seem to do as good a job myself!! Thanks for noticing!

    • Charlotte Miller

      Thanks for your comments–remember I’ve had a lot of years to work on this collection.
