I bought this trench coat and am not sure if it fits right. I am 5' tall and was wearing a 2 inch heel when I took this pic. I was also only wearing a tank top underneath. Does it look too big on me or is the fit fine?

Honestly - looks a wee bit too long IMO but depends whether you want it long or not (I have an Aquascutum trench and it ends above the knee - I'm 5ft 4ish). Just wish I was as thin as you though!!

hey,
thanks. I do want it a bit long, as with tall boots, it will protect me from the elements properly. It's just that I am not sure if this long of a coat looks good on me. I really don't want to look like a little girl playing grown-up wearing it.
p.s. what does IMO and Ita mean?

I think the fit is fine but I agree that it's a little too long. I inherited a Burberry trench from my grandmother and had it shortened to just below the knee. I was also worried about looking like I was playing dress-up, I mean a trench is classic but could be easily frumpy. However shortening it made all the difference. I wore it this week and got compliments.

Thanks guys. I'll take it to the tailor later this week and see whether they can shorten it a few inches for me. What length is better though? At knees or just above the knees?

I'd go for just above the knee.

I'm 4'11" and slim, and just above the knee trench coats work great for me.

Also consider shortening the sleeves. I did it with mine & it fit better. I'm 5'1 1/2.

Body fit for your coat is fine though. First thing I noticed were the bunched up sleeves which made for a not so good fit.

Actually, I don't think it's really that long on you - especially if you try to wear a pair of 3 inch heels instead. Mine fits right at the knee but I always wear heels with mine (and it's a quarter length sleeve instead). However, I think the trench is too wide for you and the width seems overwhelming because you're skinny. I'd go with a bit of a tighter fit because the top part looks like there's too much fabric going on.
