    ASOS Pea Coat - What To Wear With It?

    hey guys, long time lurker.

    I am totally guilty of lacking a variety of colour in my wardrobe. Most of my stuff is black (save for the odd shirt) or very dark (e.g. navy, dark brown, wine). It tends to be a matter of darker shades being easy to pair together, so I can put little thought into getting dressed in the morning. (This is a cycle I'm looking to break out of).

    ASOS | ASOS Shawl Peacoat at ASOS

    However, this beige pea coat stood out to me in the ASOS sale (admittedly, I'm a student in debt so the price tag definitely appealed) and was wondering what people's opinions are on it? Not just opinions, Also inspiration for what I could wear with it. I was thinking navy trousers, tan shoes/belt but aside from that I'm a bit clueless. I think it's a really nice piece though, and this colour jacket seems to not be found on many guys nowadays (always a good thing). So do you like it? any outfit ideas? Style wise, I like more formal pieces (shirt, leather shoes, trousers. not keen on jeans, rarely wear t-shirts).

    Cheers!

    I've never been a fan of the peacoat really, but the colour is nice and almost anything will go with it.

    Your idea of navy with tan shoes is absolutely sound and will create a good balance of dark and light tones. I think stone/camel coloured coats work best with dark colours to anchor them so your current wardrobe would be ideal.

    How about these for ideas:

    Simple and stylish: a black roll neck, black jeans and black chelsea boots (I think that would look awesome)

    Autumnal: cream/ecru cable knit jumper, dark brown tweed trousers and tan brogues

    A Splash of colour: dark chambray/denim shirt, dark red skinny chinos/cords and tan brogue boots

    I am also not really a fan of the peacoat nor the shawl collar nor beige/cream. So, that coat is definitely not for me but it is a nice piece if that's your thing.

    Try throwing in some of that 'wine' colour you have. I'm just looking at a najavo print t-shirt I have, the pattern is in beige, black, deep red and dark brown. So try a mix of those colours.

    Thanks for the colour tips guys. Really helpful! As for peacoats in general, I think they could be my favourite item of clothing. Have a black one (surprise lol) which I wear religiously. Did consider the shawl collar on this - I'm undecided on that myself. It looks nice in the picture, although I do tend to like traditional lapels when it comes to jackets. I'm going to order it and worse comes to worst I can always return it.

    love these ideas! Roll necks still scare me, however. They can look pretty badass, but I feel like you need to be a Parisian artist/lecturer to really rock that look, haha.

    Sorry to agree with everyone and dis the pea-coat, but I do like this one more than most. However, I would lean more to a jacket like this:



    Regardless, pair it with blues, preferable pastel blues (because your coat is cream.)

    Love Pea coats, not particularly in that style, though. Colour wise for pairings I would go navy mate.
