OH MY GOD, IT’S FREEZING OUTSIDE. *shivers* We need a warm wool coat STAT. And you know what’s affordable and cute when it comes to outwear? The peacoat! This no-nonsense look is in style every year (seriously, it is) and can be dressed up for going out but is still totally acceptable to wear to work. It’s basically the coat that can do anything. BUT! We have a disclaimer: You can’t buy a black peacoat. SORRIES. Unless you want to look like a Normy McNormison, don’t. Buy. Black. You’ll blend in with the sea of dark winter coats that take over the city streets, and you don’t want that! Either go for a solid pop of color, contrasting piping, or color-blocked panels. Don’t worry, you can thank us later when everyone compliments you on your look.
Erika A. of XOXO
Erika hails from the South and has the cutest style to boot! She avoided the all black plague (heh) by sporting a navy American Eagle peacoat paired with a matching navy skater skirt, black polka dot tights, and strappy Aldo platforms. She finished her look with some loose curls and a wintery knit bow headband. Adorbs!
Meanz Chan of Koi Story

Iowa-based blogger Meanz (pronounced Mince) oozes retro-cool style even from the depths of the Midwest. She paired a vintage pink lace pillbox hat with a red and navy Forever 21 coat (which is less than $50!), a pink Bohemian Bisoux shift dress, a thrifted black and white gingham shirt, black Target tights, beige Aldo wedges, plastic OC Shades sunglasses, and a POP of red matte lipstick on her pout (love!).
Heidi of The Desert Fox

California cool girl Heidi took the preppy beige peacoat to new heights in her ensemble. To liven up her Macy’s jacket, she wrapped a black scarf around her arms for a faux contrast sleeve look. So smart! She finished her outfit with skinny black Forever 21 jeans, Steve Madden riding boots, and a black H&M fringe bag.
