Last week my post was centered around the pattern of a Fashionista’s tweed coat. This week it is all about the structure. Good structure is important whether you are a fellow Fashionista or Fashionisto. A poorly constructed coat can be unflattering no matter who is wearing it. Take a hint from this week’s Fashionisto who was spotted on campus wearing this gray military-inspired coat.
This Fashionisto’s coat is the right amount of fitted; it does not look too small nor does it look too boxy on him. The simplistic and monotone look of this coat makes it the perfect casual jacket for class. The double sets of pockets create a nice detail on this jacket. A turned-up collar is always a great way to style your coat since it helps when braving a winter chill.
To achieve this Fashionisto’s look, all you need is a great coat. I would definitely recommend purchasing outerwear in store. You never know how it may fit and it is nice to be able to see how it looks before you buy it. I personally love a great investment coat. That way you have it forever and you know it will always look good.
This British Millerain jacket is perfect for going from class to class. Similar to this Fashionisto’s jacket it has the two sets of pockets. This Filson cruiser jacket is a great investment coat and the perfect casual winter coat. It comes in three different colors including a great red and black flannel. This J.Crew peacoat is a great option for the turned-up collar look like this Fashionisto has got going on.
