Shop your closet – blue linen coat

Shop your closet - blue linen coat



Continuing my series shop your closet. This week I have teamed a blue linen coat with a pair of white linen trousers. Blue and white is one of my favourite colour combinations for summer.  I feel it mirrors the softness of a blue sky interspersed with fluffy white clouds. A perfect outfit for an english summer’s day.

I am wearing a three quarter linen coat, a pair of wide leg white trousers and white linen top. I have added a touch of colour with a bright blue/pink silk scarf.

I shall keep an eye out for a winter coat in a similar colour. Maybe in a soft merino wool.

    I just wish I had some forgotten gems in my closet to recycle to create such a lovely look!

      Hi Bon
      I do buy quite carefully and keep the pieces I love for many years. They are not always very expensive items. In this case the blue coat is from Zara and is three years old
