LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: The Perfect Peacoat

Let's Hear it for the Boys

As Edward Cullen proved to us in Twilight, nothing looks better on a Fashionisto than a good old-fashioned peacoat. I don’t know what it is about peacoats, but something about them just exudes coolness and style.

While a giant down coat may seem like the toastiest option during these winter months, it is still possible to stay trendy while warding off the cold. This is where a classic peacoat comes in. Peacoats can be as warm as a puffer coat, which makes them a definite staple in a Fashionisto’s winter wardrobe.

This Fashionisto’s ensemble is equally simple and stylish. I love how he pairs a classic polo T-shirt with grey jeans instead of standard blue jeans. Grey is such a versatile color that can be paired with almost any hue for a unique color combination. Grey jeans like these look amazing with navy, maroon or any other neutral shade. This Fashionisto finishes off his outfit with a classic boat shoe with a twist. The frayed edges of the shoe give off a relaxed, casual vibe that complements the coolness of his black peacoat. I also love how he matches his shoes with his jeans, which really pulls the whole look together.

Hint: For a more fashion-forward version of this wonderfully classic outfit, try playing with the details of your peacoat. Start with a simple tee and jeans in a neutral color. Then, add a peacoat with unique details, such as this jacket with leather piping on the sleeves and collar. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, try out a peacoat in a bolder shade, such as this olive one. To make this understated look more fashion-forward (and warmer), I suggest topping the outfit off with a slouchy beanie.
