Stylish Peacoat Coats & Jackets
Comfort and warmth go hand-in-hand with stylish peacoat coats and jackets. Although the history of the peacoat is deeply rooted in military and naval backgrounds, the functionality of this durable piece of outerwear in modern times remains relatively unchanged. Peacoats are characterized by short length, double-breasted fronts, and broad lapels. You’ll also notice that they typically have large wooden, plastic, or metal buttons on the front. Due to their quality construction, peacoats help protect against harsh elements and consist of vertical pocket slits for easy access to personal items.
How to Wear Peacoats
During the fall and springtime, lightweight peacoats can provide a flattering silhouette. Due to the jacket's notch collar and button-tab detail, this light option is the perfect choice for a variety of outfits. One way to style a peacoat is to wear it over a chic women’s blouse, dress pants and a pair of elegant heels. On those casual days, opt for a nice pullover sweater and jeans completed with a pair of fashionable sneakers. Whether you’re headed to the office, a party, or out for drinks with the girls, a peacoat coat or jacket will keep you warm and stylish on those chilly days.
Colors and Occasions
Most of the time, you’ll see black and navy blue coats on the street. These tend to pair nicely with the business professional clothing underneath. The two colors are also the standard set by history, but as with all fashion, rules are meant to be broken! Sometimes, black or navy blue is too muted and will clash with your outfit. But Kohl’s has you covered! Need a brown coat or jacket? What about sapphire, fuschia, or royal purple? Tan and gray? Yes, even striped and plaid. There’s a coat out there for every outfit, you just have to choose!
If you’ve landed on a color that suits your needs, where do you plan to wear it? Luckily, the peacoat is ubiquitous. Feel like wearing your favorite winter dress? Pick a dark-colored peacoat. If it’s a plain white tee and jeans day, make a statement with a red option. From business to casual dress, the peacoat is fit for almost any occasion.
What About Suits?
Peacoats generally don’t match well with suits. Business casual attire still works with a peacoat, but when pairing one with a blazer or suit jacket, things get complicated. The length of the peacoat will often be a touch shorter than the suit jacket or blazer. So, when you’re rockin’ business professional attire, consider buying a long peacoat.
Alternatively, trench coats and jackets offer a looser fit than a peacoat. They may not be as warm, but they exude style. Where peacoats tend to stick to a specific style, even with its modern innovations, trench coats feature far more aesthetic flourishes. Varying lengths, materials, waist ties, and hoods can accommodate many body types, and heighten the style of most business professional outfits.
Staying warm isn’t just a matter of comfort, but a matter of safety as well. When it comes to buying a coat, you want to find the right one that will keep you protected from fierce wind chills and blinding storms. The warmth rating represents a comfort range that you can expect a coat to perform well in and there are generally three options:
Lightweight peacoats are ideal for mild weather.
Midweight peacoats are best on chillier days.
Heavyweight peacoats are best on those cold winter nights to keep you warm and cozy.
