STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Perfect Peacoat

Style Advice of the Week

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.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Perfect Peacoat

Uncategorized

In Morgantown, it’s rare to see a day where the sky isn’t a dreary shade of grey and snow isn’t everywhere. In these freezing conditions, it’s so much easier to throw on sweats and a fleece than anything resembling cute.

As I was walking around campus through the snow I couldn’t help but notice this bright Fashionista walking around like it wasn’t even cold outside. Nothing makes a winter outfit like a peacoat because they are incredibly stylish and can make any outfit look classy. This double-breasted jacket from Nordstrom is a great addition to a winter jacket collection because its unique color will definitely make you stand out in the crowd.

All Fashionistas know that accessories can make or break your outfit. From the scarf to the shoes this College Fashionista has it all working in her favor. Her pale plaid scarf is super warm and is neutral enough to go with anything without being boring. The green purse she doubles as a school bag is the second thing that caught my eye when I saw her. Worn leather is a classic, and generally expensive, look but this purse was only $20 from a vendor in NYC. I also love the fingerless gloves and flats, both seemingly unique but easy to find from Forever 21.

Hint: Don’t be afraid to put different colors together! Look how great it can turn out.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Perfect Peacoat

Uncategorized

Winter fashion should be less about throwing on a puffy old school down coat, and more about classic looks such as the peacoat. A peacaot is key when channeling that ever so suave Edward Cullen look every girl goes crazy over.

Depending on one’s personal style, a peacoat can be worn many different ways. This week's College Fashionisto went for the double-breasted peacoat look. The thicker, more sophisticated look of a double-breasted peacoat is timeless and popular at Sacred Heart this semester. 

So this week, my advice is to invest in a peacoat if you don't already own one. The beauty is outerwear is on sale now, so you have more options then ever to pick from!
