Now that winter is in full swing, my peacoat from French Connection is an absolute necessity. I bought it about five years ago, so it isn't available in stores anymore. However, any peacoat with a similar structure can be an instant classic in your closet for years. A reason I love mine is because of it's military style; it gives a little extra flare to its classic look. Also, it's great to choose a coat with room for over-sized clothing. My coat fits this cowl-neck sweater (that I use for extra warmth) perfectly and still allows room to breathe.
I paired it with Calvin Klein leather boots. Not only are they great for icy conditions, but they look great! Warmth is a big necessity in Chicago during the winter so a boot that hits above the calf is crucial.
As for my accessories, a Michael Kors cross-body bag and beret style hat, I opted for similar neutral colors to my coat. My bag has a simple contrast with a black and grey logo and a cross-body is great for both a night out or running errands for the day. I think neutral outerwear is great because it can be accessorized and paired with any outfit.
Here's to hoping we can all stay warm this winter!
