Navy peacoats have come along way!
This “baked squash” Peacoat from J Crew makes me want to jump in a big ol pile of leaves! The siloutte is modern sleek and sophisticated. Many peacoats tend to look boxy and square while this one has a very girlish fiqure with a slimming waistband. The collar isn’t too big, the buttons are perfect and the pockets lie flat with a simple flap.
A pea coat (or pea jacket, pilot jacket) is an outer coat, generally of a navy-colored heavy wool originally worn by sailors of European navies. Today the style is considered a classic, and pea coats are now worn by all manner of individuals, not just professional sailors. When it is worn by a woman, it is often referred to as a Jackie O Jacket. – Wikipedia
