The temperature is dropping and the leaves are falling from trees; autumn has finally arrived. As the temperature starts to dip and the air becomes crisp, students are going to break out their warm jackets and coats. If you don’t know what to wear to stay cozy, don’t fear, I am more than willing to help you find the perfect fall coat.
The most obvious answer to any male or female student’s problems would be to check out The North Face’s website. A North Face fleece will be your best bet to stay warm while walking to class in the brisk weather. The colors are countless, and there is a huge selection of styles. You can pick up a bright fleece zip-up or buy a black one with a hood. The North Face also has every type of jacket you can imagine. Whether you are running through a monsoon or hiking up the Appalachians, the North Face will be your go to company for comfort and warmth.
Another solution to staying warm in this weather is to go out and buy a pea coat. This is not just for the women out there, it is for the men too. Pea coats are warm and comfortable if you find the correct fit. They can also be fairly inexpensive if you buy one from Kohl’s, Macy’s or H&M. Men, don’t be scared to try one of these out! Women will love that you have a sense of style and are willing to take a risk by wearing something different. Many businessmen wear these while they commute to work because they look more professional. A pea coat can be paired with anything from a casual outfit to a dressier one. They are perfect to wear to both class and work.
The next suggestion I have for you to add to your wardrobe is a trench coat. Both men and women are able to sport this fashion as well. Men may be a little more hesitant to wear one, however, they will be thanking me if they go buy one and have to walk to class while it is raining. Trench coats keep you warm, fashionable and dry. They protect you from getting wet and from the wind. This type of coat can also be paired with anything from business to casual wear. A trench coat will be a good investment for the future as well if you are planning to work in the business world. You wouldn’t want to be caught in a rainstorm during your morning commute with no jacket.
Fourth on the list for fall jackets and coats is a little bit different: a vest. On days when the sun is shining and the wind is not blowing, many people do not want to wear jackets, yet they are still chilly. A vest is the perfect solution to throw on over a shirt or sweater to keep you warm and comfortable. You can purchase a vest at dozens of stores including Old Navy, H&M, TJ Maxx and many more. Try to keep in mind that vests should be fitted, but not too tight because they will need to be able to zipper with a shirt underneath. If you keep that tip in mind while you are shopping, you will be able to wear a vest comfortably to class.
Lastly, a good, lightweight jacket to have would be an anorak. An anorak is a jacket that buttons up the front and has a cinched waist. The hoods are often removable, and the jackets can be waterproof or not. This is a great type of coat to throw on with a casual outfit on your way to class. An anorak can be purchased at American Eagle, Gap, Old Navy and even Nordstrom. They are everywhere!
The next time you are at the mall, do not forget to pick up a winter coat because the temperature is going to continue to drop!
