Style Advice of the Week

I am completely in shock that we’re already almost all the way through December. Time is passing by way too quick, but I guess that can be a good thing; that means summer is another month closer. Who can complain about that right? But for the remaining of this winter, let’s make the best out of it. How about we begin with a little chit chat on coats? They’re so important in our cold-weather ensembles. They are the finishing pieces to every outfit so we have to be extra thoughtful when choosing which one to wear. One that we can always count on is the classic black peacoat. Today’s Fashionisto pulled off a perfect look with it.

His ensemble has a light urban twist thanks to his dark indigo jeans and cognac combat boots. When these two are paired together, they will never fail to create a casual street-style look that can be perfectly cool for a school day. If you want to go for a more semi-formal look, opt for chino pants and a pair of wing-tipped oxford shoes. You’ll be sure to look super dapper and ready for any final presentations or maybe a date night.

As for your inner layers, go for a chunky cardigan. Look for one that has eye-catching details or prints. Or simply go plain like this Fashionisto did. He chose a heather gray double breasted cardigan. The button details and collar folds can be just as loud as colors and patterns. Experiment it for yourself! And last but not least, top it all off with a black peacoat. It will never do you wrong and Banana Republic agrees as it’s shown in their fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection.

A classic black peacoat is timelessly classic and effortlessly versatile. See what pairings you can create. Good luck!
