Black and White Coat

Black and white is one of my favorite combinations. I have quite a few black and white pieces in my closet and love how easily they can be combined to create new looks. In fact, my travel wardrobe last summer was predominantly black and white with some blue and green accent pieces. The black and white pieces worked out great as I mixed and matched them, and the accent pieces kept things interesting.

While we were in Germany in July, there were already a lot of end-of-season sales going on with multiple price reductions on some pieces, and one of the heavily-reduced pieces I picked up was a lightweight black and white coat. I also bought a matching dress in another store a few days later; you’ll see the dress in an upcoming post.

I like the black and white geometrical pattern of the coat. The day we took these photos it was very windy; hence the weird position of my hands in the next photo...


Black and White Outfit 2

I decided to wear white jeans, a black blouse and my silver lace-up flats.

Be well,

  6. Black and white prints are just golden, and the graphic motif of yours makes it very fresh, Andrea. Love that you paired the look with silver shoes, a touch of glint always works.

  10. How could you ever go wrong with black and white??? Your coat has a lovely pattern and those flats are to die for! The end-of-season sales are a smart way to pick key pieces...

    1. Yes! I love the end of season sales in Europe. Since there aren't as many sales at other times, you can really find great bargains on timeless pieces.

    1. Thanks, Mica! The coat was a great find as it's so lightweight, and I can wear it for a good part of the year here in California...

    1. Thanks, Lauren! I found the flats when I was shopping with my older son at Banana Republic for his birthday present. They were on sale for $12! so I had to pick them up, especially since I had been looking for lace-up flats and metallic flats for a while...

  15. Andrea----this is a fabulous coat! Really---it's going to go with everything, yet it's so interesting!! Of course, I know I'm biased since I think a statement coat is a must have for every woman. But I can't tell you how much Im in love with this one!!

    1. Thanks, Jodie! I agree a statement coat is a must. I love this one since it's very lightweight so I get to wear it a bit longer here in California...

  17. The great geometric lines of this coat remind me of a piece of abstract art. Perfect transition piece. And those silver flats. Really lovely.

  19. Oooh, shopping in Germany... how fun! :) I always think a piece you bring home from a trip with you is extra special, too! I love this b/w coat, esp with the white pants and those metallic (gold?) lace up flats!
