LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Peacoat Perfection

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It’s always interesting to see a classic coat constantly worn year after year, no matter how fashions have changed. Nobody can ever go wrong with a traditional peacoat. Not only is it timeless, but it’s also fashionable and classy. The peacoat was originally worn by sailors of European and American Navies and has now evolved to be worn by all. Once I saw this gray wool peacoat paired with bright maroon skinnies, I knew we had a successful Fashionisto on our hands!

What makes this outfit so trendy are all of the finishing touches. Colored pants are so beneficial to have in your closet because they can be worn during any season. This Fashionisto’s maroon pants add a pop of flavor to his edgy, yet traditional ensemble. He adds a touch of his own personal style by tucking his skinny jeans into a pair of black combat boots. To add edge to a traditional look, he not only pairs his classic peacoat with a denim button-down, but adds a patterned scarf with it as well. His statement accessory really ties together his complete outfit.

This Fashionisto looks warm and comfortable while still maintaining his edgy and sharp personal style. An easy way to pull off this look is to pair neutrals with one exciting, bright item. Having that one pop of color really catches the attention of your peers. Just be careful not to let colors clash. This Fashionisto successfully balanced his use of colors by mixing grays with black and maroon. Remember that sometimes, less is more.

Hint: Bring out your own unique personality through your shoes. A classic pair of combat boots bring edge to any outfit. To spice up a simple ensemble, all you need is a statement accessory and a bold shoe. So, get out there and bring creativity to your hallways!
