Black and White Checkered Duster

Black and white has to be one of my favourite duos when it comes to two-tone outfits. Not only do I wear this combo a lot, but I’ve even packed black and white clothes on two vacations and plan to do it again next trip because it means I don’t need to pack much and everything matches. Even clothes I buy while on holiday will go with black and white.

Originally dusters were long, loose, lightweight coats that horsemen wore to protect their clothing from dust. Then men and women wore dusters when riding in open carriages and cars.

Now we wear dusters as a fashion statement and this one caught my attention with its big, bold black and white checks. I can wear it now with black corduroy leggings and black booties.

Dress rehearsal for spring–I’ll be able to wear it with white skinny jeans and sandals if the snow ever melts. Everything looks dead, no signs of life yet.

Do you have a duster?


Linking up with Patti who happens to be wearing black and white checks too!

    I love your shirt with big black and white paintings, it’s very pretty. And I like the combination with your delicate top lingerie, the informality along with the seduction. And your all black are always pure beauty, combining perfectly with this shirt. The outfit that combines white and black in the foulard, in the shirt, in the pants and in the sandals is even more beautiful, because it is more daring, it is a wonderful exercise in style and elegance, I really like it!

      Thank you Patti! So cool that we are both wearing black and white checks for our recent posts – great fashion minds, eh? I’m quite a collector and since I do a lot of thrifting and take care of my clothes, a closet just wouldn’t be big enough. One day I plan to show my dressing room. 🙂

      ❤ carmen
