I hope everyone in New York is staying warm on these sort of crazy weather winter days we’ve been having. February has been filled with 60 degree sunny days that feel like spring time and days where it snows so much that classes have to be canceled. With so many weather changes it has been really hard to know how to dress these days and pea coats have been the go-to for Fordham’s Fashionistas.
As I mentioned, the essential piece for New York right now is the peacoat, and it is something that everyone should have ready-to-go in their closets for the winter. These coats keep you warm because they are perfect for layering on colder days, however, on the warmer days (such as the 60 degree ones we’ve had) it doesn’t allow you to overheat. Not only are peacoats super comfortable, they also can be incredibly stylish.
This Fashionista did an exquisite job styling her peacoat on this sunny and snow dusted day. She paired her coat with a gray turtleneck and a beautiful rose crossbody bag. This bag choice provides a pop of color to this neutral color palette outfit. In addition, she added a series of silver intricate rings which, although simple, added to the uniqueness of this look. This Fashionista also chose to wear a knit hat which perfectly complemented her crossbody. The hat also added a huge pop of color to this look.
The star of this look, however, was her gorgeous plaid peacoat. I have never quite seen a coat as original as this one. The sleeves are large thus making it perfect for layering and although not fully appreciated in these photos, the coat has gorgeous black buttons. Coats similar to this one can be found in shops such as Zara. However, he best place to find a staple piece such as this is at some of New York City’s thrift shops.
