One of my favorite things about the inevitable cold of winter is that I get to treat me to a new coat to warm me up, every year. So, it’s my 8th year in London meaning this Peacoat is the 8th coat in my wardrobe.
Over this weekend, when London had shivered through the coldest days of this winter, I bundled up in my new coat on Saturday and headed out for this quirky place for a brunch. What’s great about this new Peacoat is that it’s so effortless in it’s appeal and can be worn from day to night. Featuring classic double-breasted pattern, this coat is gently tailored in soft brushed fabric with side pockets. The minimalism of the black is enhanced by the beautiful detail of golden buttons that is highly flattering. Cozy and elegant sophistication—Yes please!
I find it appealing that the front body has a warm appearance with golden buttons while the sleeves and collar are kept simple. The little details with buttons at the back really enhanced the look of the coat.
The peacoat is a wardrobe classic, and pairing it with the right outfit can really elevate a look. Teaming it up with a pair of leg-hugged indigo jeans made me ready and set to look like an ever-fresh sunshine girl during brunching out with the beautographer.
To add a little bit of color pop, I paired the coat with this bold red animal print scarf that seamlessly mixes together comfort and edge.
I’m a huge advocate for black ankle boots, so I paired this Peacoat with the most comfortable, reliable footwear around- an old pair of leather ankle boots with gold buckle.
Coordinating your nail polish or lip color with the little things is often what sets the bigger things off and gets them noticed. So, I matched this round turquoise bracelet from Tribe by Amrapali of Amrapali Jewels with Max Factor nail lacquer in the shade Dazzling Blue and my bold red animal print scarf with this classic cherry red lipstick from Illamasqua in the shade Maneater.
To complete the look, I can’t deny my love for this go-to black quilted messenger bag especially when I’m in a rush. This one is great because it’s more of a basic wardrobe piece and I like that the silver chain detailing really pops against the leather. It complements the outfit nicely keeping it minimal.
