Pea coats are a kind of winter clothing that usually come with typical features such as double-sided buttons, double-breasted fronts, and large collars; however, these days, there are a whole lot of other varieties to choose from.
If you are thinking of buying something high-quality and durable―something that will protect and keep you absolutely safe from the winter chill―go in for woolen pea coats. For those of you who prefer style and comfort but do not want to spend much, fleece is the perfect choice. However, if you ask me, denim wins hands down. These coats are not only cheap, but are also the most versatile. Whether worn over leggings, jeans, or a skirt, they can make any outfit look cool and trendy.
The most common colors are black, brown, blue, white, and gray. They are the most sought after, for the simple reason that they complement almost all kinds of dresses and shoes. However, there is no dearth of vibrant and bright colors. You can get wool, cotton, and fleece coats in almost any color you want.
Just like in colors, there is a wide variety of styles available in these coats. You will find them in three lengths―waist length, just below the hip, and knee-length. They are designed to meet the demands of people with all kinds of body shapes. Some even come with a hood.
When it comes to buying the perfect fit, always go in for one size larger. Since you would be wearing a shirt or sweater beneath, there should be enough room for the two layers. Try on a number of styles before making your final decision, so that the one you choose fits nicely and suits your body shape.
These winter fashion items should be dry-cleaned regularly. They are durable (especially the woolen ones), and once you invest in them, they will last you a couple of seasons. Pair them up with a nicely fitting pair of jeans or black tights.
