With the cold weather already on its way, coats are an essential for the freezing winds ahead. Last winter pea coats were an obvious trend that emerged from Europe’s class style. When I studied abroad to Slovakia three years ago, everyone owned a black pea coat. There is no doubt that pea coats will continue to be worn this fall and winter. Since everyone will most likely wear black, why not wear a different color? This powdered pink pea coat has been in my closet for a few years and I will definitely be wearing it this season. Wool pea coats will be popping up everywhere as they have been since last winter. I found mine at a thrift store for under $5. Like I said in previous posts, thrift stores have EVERYTHING.
Fur makes the wearer feel luxurious and most importantly warm. Fur and leather are making a huge come back this season and are very fun to include in your wardrobe. Fur is a bit expensive, but thrift stores are stocked with them at convenient prices. This fur jacket was a gift from a close friend. Wearing fur can be quite difficult in terms what to wear with it. A lot of times it is safer to wear fur with a simpler outfit or it could be viewed as a bit much in terms of clashing patterns and textures.
Other than owning nice coats to go out in, it is important to own a coat that is considered weather resistant. Many brands such as Burton, Columbia Sportswear and the North Face have very durable winter coats that are warm without bulk. This Orage coat was around $450 and has lasted me for more than four years. Having a reliable coat for the winter is useful for skiing and snowboarding or taking a walk to class through Kent’s snowy winters. Though these coats are a bit expensive, they are a necessity for the frosty times ahead.
