Walking on campus, I couldn’t miss this Fashionista in her bright red peacoat. Only a few shades off from IU’s crimson, she definitely stood out casually showing off her school spirit.
A great staple piece that can transform from the tailgate to class is always great, but what about a piece that can be worn on any casual occasion? Maybe a date night? It’s hard to find time for date nights, especially between classes, studying and midterms, but you can take a lot of the stress and time out of it with a go-to casual date outfit for those rare occasions.
I love how this Fashionista mixed formal and casual pieces. A peacoat can always pass as formal, but by pairing it with some neutrals, a pair of leggings and booties, she was able to achieve a more casual look perfect for the classroom as well as a casual dinner date.
One Simple Change: To switch this outfit from a casual date night to a more formal date night, try a neutral patterned dress underneath the brighter coat like this tweed shift dress from Banana Republic. And although the Michael Kors tote is nice and functional for every day use, a smaller clutch might be more suitable for a formal gathering. For that, try this color block clutch from ASOS. Finally, no date night would be complete without some jewelry. To offset the pop of the coat, try a simple gold chain necklace like this one from Need Supply.
