The peacoat is a layering piece that neatly tops off an outfit. Worn by itself, the peacoat creates a classic and sophisticated look. This Fashionista chose to wear her peacoat as a statement piece contrasted with some light accessories. Her red wrap scarf is distinguished against her black peacoat and also brings out her burgundy hair. Her choice of loose black boots with a tint of brown also give an extra style dimension to her entire look. All together this Fashionista pulled together a very chic outfit for a day on campus!

Major: Political Science
CollegeFashionista: Who or what inspires your fashion style?
Michelle Ribaudo: Although I am a California native, I love the east coast fashion style. I get a lot of my fashion inspirations from NYC trending styles from different magazines.
CF: Where do you mainly shop?
MR: I mainly shop at H&M, Macy's, and ANGL. They all have well made clothes that are not too expensive!
CF: What is your go-to wardrobe piece (essential accessory) that tops off every outfit?
MR: Im not too big on jewelry, mostly cuz it turns my fingers green or breaks before the day ends, so I like to accessorize with scarves or hair accessories. But I think footwear tends to make an outfit, your whole outfit can be improved by the kind of shoes you are wearing.
CF: Describe your style in three words?
MR: Trendy, sophisticated, and fun
How To: To achieve Michelle’s classy look, a versatile peacoat needs to be added to your wardrobe. This POP Cph Wool Peacoat is a great piece that can be worn exclusively or paired with a casual or elegant get-up. Depending on the tone of your peacoat, a scarf should be chosen accordingly. Scarves with tones of red and purple, and with minimal detail work best because they will match with the neat, fine structure of the peacoat. This ombré silk chiffon scarf is a nice find. A two-tone boot is another option that can add an extra element to a classic dark-toned look. A good option is a pair like these Bellcloud UGGs.
