STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Complement Your Companion With a Classic Peacoat

The island of Manhattan is home to many uniquely outfitted Fashionistas/os, but one of the styles so characteristic of our bustling metropolis is the urban savvy street chic look. New York street fashion is based on the functional, yet stylish, garments one wears every day in the city that never sleeps. Girls are encouraged to ditch the high-heeled stilettos and tight mini dresses in favor of knit tights and biker boots. Boys who rock the urban clothing personality have outfits that give off an easygoing, cool and comfortable feel. One timeless winter garment that works for both boys and girls this season is the pea coat.

I spotted this urban couple looking chic on the street while running a few errands between classes. These two fit in perfectly with the city’s urban fashion style in their double-breasted pea coats. Their style is cutting-edge, but uses the classic fashion of the pea coat to add a bit of sophistication to their casual look. A black pea coat is what everyone needs in their winter wardrobe. These two Fashionista/os chose to keep warm underneath their coats with different colored sweaters, which accent the military-style buttons on the front of their jackets. The pea coat is good for work or play; it gives off a flattering shape and a tailored fit for a slim, trim look.

This Fashionista chose to give her outfit a fresh, feminine look with a sweet flowery printed skirt. By pairing her flowy mini with a pair of knit tights, she shows that floral skirts are not strictly for summer style. Her lace-up booties add a touch of toughness to her skirt, and her statement necklace gives her outfit a bit of an edge. The Fashionisto pictured wears Converse sneakers with his pea coat; an easy style to spruce up casual wear. His fitted jeans contribute to his laid back look, and he shows some style without going too skinny. The slouchy beanie will help keep his head warm as the weather cools, and adds the right amount of street to his look.

So Fashonista/os, follow the lead of celebrity couples like Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner or Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz and rock the street chic look. Look fierce this winter with outfits that make a fun, edgy yet classic statement – but remember to dress warm!
