30+ OUTFIT IDEAS WITH A SHORTER BLACK COAT

What is more classical than a black coat? If there is an autumn/winter outwear essential, that's definitely the black coat. Most of you probably own at least one and many of you own several of them. I own only two and they differ only in length. Both of them are double breasted but one is longer than the other. I have had both of them for ages and I do enjoy styling them.  For this post, I'll focus on my shorter black coat.  I'll show you 30+ ways to wear this black coat for autumn/winter.  


If you're looking for inspiration for styling your black coat, you have come to the right place. I have worn this coat in so many ways. One of the things I like about it is how easy it is to style. It looks great both with neutral and colourful outfits, casual and classy ones. It just looks good with everything! I bought this coat years ago and if my photo records are correct, I wore it more than 40 times (taken that this coat costed only 25 euros, that's zero cost per wear). That makes it a sustainable item (30 wears is what we should strive for to have an eco friendly closet). 

I will divide my black coat outfit proposals in two categories: skirt (or dresses) and pants. One thing I noticed is that I tend to wear this coat more with pants than I do with skirts and dresses. That's interesting. Another thing I noticed is that I like to pair it with high boots and colourful accessories.

  14. Mi piacciono molto questi post in cui fai vedere la versatilità di un singolo capo di abbigliamento! Brava!

  15. Anche se io di norma preferisco indossare capi colorati, senza dubbio almeno un cappotto nero è essenziale da avere!
    Il tuo è delizioso ed il taglio casual gli consente la massima versatilita, come hai ampiamente dimostrato!
    Anche se li trovo tutti molti carini e stilosi, il look che preferisco è il primo: trovo che la lunghezza e la forma della gonna siano perfetti per quel tipo di cappotto, e ti dona anche moltissimo! :)
    Baci!

  16. A classic black coat is a must in any closet. It may not make a huge statement but it will be a very versatile workhorse that can be styled in so many ways as you've beautifully demonstrated here. Great job on that cost per wear. I think that is the best way to gauge the value of your wardrobe.

  22. I agree, black coat is irreplaceable especially for autumn and winter, I have one wool trench coat since ten years and it's my absolutely favorite outerwear. I'm impressed how creative you are, so many beautiful outfits, love them all and my favorite is with faux fur stole, jeans and boots.
    Have a wonderful evening dear!

  26. I used to do just a plain black coat all the time, and then one of my readers wanted to see my outerwear with my daily looks - and that started me off on a full outerwear/coat collection! I now have 4 black coats, out of a closet of about 24 coats total, in all colours, shapes and weights. I do still enjoy a black coat, but I much more prefer picking the right coat for the outfit.

    That said, you have really gotten your money's worth out of this one, Ivana! Well done!

  27. At the moment my jacket is a long black trench coat, but for many years before this I had a shorter black coat like yours! And I loved it because there were so many ways to wear it, and it worked with skirts and dresses. Now with my longer one, when I wear a shorter skirt or dress you can't see it so it looks a little bit odd :P

  31. You wear the black coats so beautifully! It was so fun to look at all of the outfits you had organized with the versatile coats. Also, I took note that it must be quite cold there when the winter months return.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ BY L.FRANK BAUM (BOOK REVIEW)

Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.
