A dream about wearing a trench coat often symbolizes protection and concealment. It's often not quite so simple though.

Dreaming of donning a trench coat may signify a Freudian defense mechanism, a psychological strategy to guard oneself from emotional distress or anxiety.

Also: It could symbolize 'repression', where you are unconsciously burying uncomfortable emotions or aspects of your identity. Alternatively, it may represent 'projection', where you are attributing your own undesirable traits onto others. Observing another in a trench coat could denote 'displacement', where you are transferring your feelings of mistrust or apprehension onto another individual. It might also suggest 'sublimation', where you are channeling your curiosity about their enigmatic persona into dream symbolism. These dreams invite you to delve deeper into your unconscious mind to better understand your emotional landscape.
