With the most wonderful time of the year right around the corner and the impending cold weather accompanying it, the transition from fall to winter has arrived. Winter style can be tough, as layers of sweaters, coats and scarves can leave you worrying more about looking like a stuffed sausage and less about being the most fashionable girl on campus. So what exactly is the one thing that is going to make or break your campus style this winter? The perfect winter coat. If you’re still rocking your pea coat from eighth grade or God forbid, a North Face fleece on a regular basis, it is time for a change.
This Fashionista caught my eye in her classic, perfectly cut black coat. This is the perfect go-to coat to own in a neutral color, with a defined waist and mid-thigh length. If you are looking for something similar to this Fashionista’s, try this empire waist coat from DKNY. For all you girly-girls, this beige, feminine wrap coat will quickly turn into your favorite winter staple. Finally, if you’re looking to channel your inner Blair Waldorf, check out this bright red showstopper from ASOS. Who said red isn’t a neutral anyway? Don’t forget the importance of the perfect winter coat this season and if that North Face fleece is still hanging around, it’s time to demote it to running wear only.
