Winter is upon us; the days are shorter, the weather is colder, and let’s be honest, the fashion is getting lazier. I think we are all victim to throwing on hoodies and sweatpants when the weather gets cold. And there is nothing, I repeat, nothing, wrong with being cozy in sweaters and sweatpants. However, there is also no reason to not wear stylish outfits in the winter. But I understand, it is hard to put together an outfit that is both cute and warm. But I am here to solve that problem for you. I have the solution to looking amazing in the winter, while also keeping nice and warm, and that solution is a pea coat! You absolutely need a pea coat in your closet, and I am going to give you 3 reasons why.
It Goes with Everything
This is arguably the most important reason why you need a pea coat. A pea coat goes with everything. You can wear a pea coat with jeans, leggings, tights, t-shirts, sweaters, dresses; you can pair this coat with absolutely anything. It is an amazing staple to keep in your closet, especially if you get a black one, which I highly recommend. I will say that this is not one of the cheaper articles of clothing I own. I got this one from Old Navy and it was about $70. But if you are going to invest in any piece of clothing, it should be this. I also suggest investing a fair amount into a pea coat because you run the risk of not getting the most out of your coat if you buy it cheap. You will absolutely not regret investing your money in this dynamic coat.
Pea Coats are so incredibly warm. I am someone who tends to run cold and need a lot of layers (and blankets!) to keep warm. But this coat keeps me so warm. Warmth is something that is important to me because if you’re cold you’re not comfortable and it can really ruin your day. This coat keeps me comfortable and allows me to enjoy my day feeling warm but also knowing I’m in a stylish outfit. Pea Coats tend to be on the thicker side which is why they trap so much heat, and it’s also what makes them so durable and long lasting.

Never Goes out of Style
A Pea Coat will never go out of style. This coat has been in fashion forever, and I think it will continue to stay in fashion. I think the reason for this is that it is a fairly simple look with nothing that has defining features of any particular era or trend. Because of the design it does go well with any outfit and doesn’t run the risk of going out of fashion. I also feel if years down the line it did lose popularity, it would still look elegant and be appropriate to wear anyway. I feel like bootcut jeans and mom jeans, and pants that are loose fitting are gaining popularity and trending, but skinny jeans will always look chic and are a timeless piece that will look amazing regardless of whether or not it’s “in fashion.”
You need a Pea Coat. It can be worn over any outfit you’d like and you will get so much use out of it. It’s more than just a stylish piece, it will keep you warm and comfortable in the cold winter months. This is a piece you never have to fear going out of style because it is chic and timeless. I pinky promise you will not regret buying a Pea Coat. This one from Old Navy, it’s beautiful and it’s warm and it comes in petite and small sizes. I am 5’1” and I went ahead and got the petite and it fits me perfectly. Usually coats are too big on me and it’s not a cute look, but this one fits like a glove. If you are petite girl, I recommend the petite sizing for this. I hope this helped give you some good insights as to why a pea coat is a great investment, and I hope you get one and I hope you love it.
