OOTD: Princess and the Pea Coat

Pea Coats: The American Classic



The pea coat has been a winter wardrobe staple since before Harry met Sally. However, that doesn’t mean that we can just sit back and be comfortable wearing the same beige, shoulder padded jacket that our mothers wore in the early 90s. Of course, there is nothing wrong with the classics, but a piece of clothing that has seen over a dozen winters deserves  a little bit of a makeover. 

With the holiday season upon us, party invitations fill our mailboxes and email inboxes. Of course we want to look our very best at every one of these festive events, but many times the cold weather prevents us from being able to dress to impress. With the perfect pea coat, you can be rest assured that your entrance into the annual family dinner party and New Years Eve high school reunion will make your boastful cousin, who never stops talking about her trip to Spain, jealous and your old high school crush, take notice.  

A coat that keeps you warm and stylish? Sign me up. I have a pea coat from Macys, bought a few years ago when I lost my original winter coat on a train ride into NYC. RIP to the lost puffy coat, but after the purchase of my new jacket, I think it was fate. This coat has lasted me three years and counting. With leather detailing on the shoulders and cheetah print lining, I am happy to say that my pea coat is a fun take on the American classic. Interested in buying a statement pea coat too? The links below will lead you to some fabulous examples.
