How to Tie a Trench Coat Belt in Front

I don’t know about you, but I hate having to unbuckle and unbutton my trench coat whenever I take it off. It takes forever! Plus, the long belt is always a pain. That’s why I usually wrap and tie the coat. It’s so much easier to put on and take off (which especially helpful when you’re traveling!). Here’s how to tie a trench coat belt in front like I do:

Sydne Style shows how to tie a trench coat in 6 easy steps copy
  1. Don’t button up your coat. Simply wrap it around your body, with the buttons side in front.
  2. Make the side of the belt without the buckle much longer than the side with the buckle.
  3. Bring the long side of the belt over and under the shorter side and tie in a simple knot.
  4. Loop the longer side of the belt under the shorter side and fold into a loop away from your body.
  5. Pull the loop through the small hole above the buckle.
  6. Tighten by pulling the loop and the side of the belt with the buckle.

I know. It can be confusing at first. But I promise once you do it a few time, it feels like second nature. If you prefer to see how it’s done via video you can watch my Instagram Reel on how to tie a trench coat belt in front.

Here I’m wearing my maxi trench coat. I bought it for springtime in Paris years ago and I’m so happy with the purchase. It’s water resistant with a detachable hood. Plus, it’s machine washable, which is nice. I couldn’t find my color available online but it’s on sale in black and khaki and also on sale in navy and black.

I’m 5’3 so I ordered a petite since it’s such a long length. Unfortunately I couldn’t find petites in this style anymore. But they do have a slightly shorter version, which would be a great length for us shorties. And here are a bunch more trench coat options from the same brand… all on sale!
