It seems as if winter has finally begun to settle in around campus. Scarves, boots, sweaters and jackets are making their way out of people’s closets. Layering is essential when it comes to bundling up to make that trip to class. As most Knoxville students know, it’s freezing walking to class in the morning, but by the time you get into the buildings with the heat blasting, after walking up all of the hills, you’re ready to rip your jacket off. This is exactly why layering is a must. Pea coats as your outer layer are perfect for this fall and winter. They have been in the fashion realm for a long time and they remain a classic must-have. Now, Fashionistas can find their own color or pattern or length to make it unique to their style.
Pea coats are just as cute and fashionable buttoned up with that as your statement piece or left open to reveal your outfit. This Fashionista let it be her pop of color with her black and white business casual pieces. The geometric patterned skirt is very on-trend, but classic enough to have for a long period of time and still be fashionable. Patterns are huge right now. Patterns that used to be found on mostly shirts and accessories have moved to pants and shoes.
If you’re in need of a stylish and modern pea coat, check out Mango or ASOS. They can be paired with just about any clothing item you can imagine. They can be dressed up with a dress, tights and heels or worn more casually with jeans and boots. With scarves being more popular than ever this season, adding a bright patterned scarf to a solid color jacket is a simple but stylish look that anyone can put together quickly on these cooler days. Pea coats are definitely worth investing some money into since they last for a long time and remain timeless. Stay warm out there!
