Unfortunately summer has left the building and fall walked right in. But no worries, Fall and Winter's best friend will keep you nice and warm. Mother Nature is a mystery, and jackets and blazers are never going to guarantee to keep you warm so you need something more. What is the most timeless piece that somebody could have in their closet? A peacoat. No matter what your taste is, you'll be able to rock a peacoat in your own way. The peacoat made its debut about 200 years ago and it's not going anywhere. Peacoats were never actually originally intended for women, but things have changed. Just walk into your local Macy's and its coats galore, darling. Don't forget to accessorize! For plain color coats, try a bold colored scarf for that pow! For those colorful peacoats, try a patterned scarf, but don't forget to match. When in doubt, belt it out.
Do a Twirl for me, Girl: Feeling girly? Try something like this inspired Gossip Girl dress peacoat above. Pair a dress peacoat with your bare legs and some thigh-high boots for a more edgy look or pair it with black tights and some little black ankle booties for that cutesy look. Forget the outfit underneath, the dress is the focal-point.
A Little Color Never Killed Nobody: Fall doesn't always have to mean dull colors! Forget the gray, black, and brown; go for bolds! This red coat above is perfect for fall. Pair it with your favorite skinnies and flats for a casual look to run errands in.
When in Doubt, Let it all Out: Do you really want to keep warm, but you really want to show off your stylish outfit underneath? Don't even bother to button it up,unless it is way too freezing to do so. Make sure that the peacoat is somewhat fitting so that when you leave it unbuttoned you don't look like you are drowning in your coat.
A Flattering Fit: Are you wearing your dad's coat? Of course not! So why would you want to look like you are? You need to make sure your peacoat is fitted. Women's peacoats are meant to be tailored for extreme definition. If your peacoat is a little big, belt it. To balance out the fit, when skinny pants or a pencil skirt. Wear a simple outfit when it comes to wanting to show off your peacoat.
