With a patterned coat like this, the art of sticking to your basics comes in handy. The standout piece does all the talking and you’re free to wear your plain black tee with your solid gray jeans and those embossed white flats without the fear of appearing too “Plain Jane.” I’ll have to admit, this coat is the perfect cover-up for those days you don’t feel like dressing up. Get casual, throw it over your shoulders & call it a day. Shop similar below:

    “Checked in Blue” is a more clever way to say it. Very much “you” to do it so well. Thanks for linking with Fashion ITEM Friday. It is the perfect ‘item’. ♥

    From a man’s perception: I agree that the model in the photo looks attractive in that outfit, as she made the look attractive without overdoing. With a patterned coat like that, the art of sticking to what you own may come in handy. The greatest part is you can wear either your plain black or white tee…. regardless just be who you are and know that it’s what you think of yourself that matters & not what other’s say!!
