Fashion doesn’t have to take a backseat when biting temperatures make their appearance. Although staying warm is your most important decision, there are many options available to showcase both style and practicality. One of these options is the quintessential peacoat. The peacoat is a Fashionista and Fashionisto staple because of its use value and ability to maximize your personal style.
Today’s Fashionisto is wearing a classic navy peacoat that complements his ensemble perfectly. His double-breasted peacoat is a key piece in combating cold weather and optimizing the rest of his look. The bold navy color is a great contrast to his light wash pants and pairs well with his deep red, quarter-zip layer. Find this Fashionisto’s peacoat at J.Crew. There are many options for Fashionistas and Fashionistos that include basic colors, such as navy and black, or more vibrant colors, such as vintage berry and frosted citrus. Mustard is another popular option and a great color for the otherwise dull palette many adopt for their outerwear selections. Nordstrom also has great styles for those looking for savvy yet timeless outerwear.
When choosing a peacoat, keep in mind that branching out to other colors and patterns is an acceptable alternative to the standard look. Cashmere peacoats can be a bit pricey but wool blends look just as chic. You can also try knit peacoats that offer a different texture from the standard blends. Mix up your style with houndstooth or even plaid prints that pair well with almost all winter wardrobes. Tipped peacoats are another trendy take on this classic piece of outerwear and are sure to turn the heads of many. Keep yourself safe from the elements with the addition of a necessary and practical peacoat this fall and winter.
