Before we move on viewing my favorite pea coats that are so must-have this year, I want you to know a little bit of fashion history. Originally pea-coats were popular among European sailors and members of the American Navy. Their appearance did not change much. Modern styles come with heavy wool fabrics, wide lapels, large buttons and slash pockets. My personal favorite is the double-breasted design with wide lapels and a tailored shape. You might say that heavy weight of this topper is not comfortable, but this weight was created for a function that will protect you in the cold days and nights. Anyway, let’s have a close-up look at some of my favorite styles. Scroll down to see more.
In today’s modern world, we tend to wear functional clothing that can suit casual and formal events. Luckily, there’s nothing as classically chic as a peacoat. This topper is still a closet essential for early spring, warm winter and late fall months. In today’s fashion, there are so many interesting designs to invest in. As you can see, there are oversized versions with boyish fits and classy colors, ladylike fitted must-haves with statement buttons, etc. Most ladies say this jacket has a special military-inspired look. Well, everything depends on how you gonna style it. Ladies can wear them with leather skinnies on the weekends, or try them on atop sharp button-downs or draped over slinky cocktail frocks. In other words, it’s a timeless topper that will be your favorite piece in your spring and fall wardrobe. Ahead, my favorite ways to wear a pea coat and make it look fabulous.
