Trend: The Versatile Pea Coat

The pea coat made its mark as a classic essential in the fashion world a long time ago, and it has no plans to give up its title.

The double-breasted, button front coat first got its start as the outerwear of European sailors in the early 19th century. Since then, the coat has adopted fans from every kind of fashion group because of its versatility and clean lines.

No matter what your taste, it is easy to rock the season’s classic pea coat without losing your distinct personal style.

Are you a modern prep at heart? Try pairing a pea coat with a striped rugby sweater in a loud color to really stand out on campus.

A die hard bohemian? The pea coat has never looked more whimsical than paired with a floor skimming peasant skirt in a rustic print.

Want a more elegant look? Throw a faux fur stole over your shoulders for added luxury and class. Prefer a more edgy and sleek style? You can’t go wrong with a pair of skin tight black skinny jeans and your pea coat.
