Winter Whites and Blue

P1230256 hk

Winter has come to Berlin and coat season with it. I personally love wool coats and have a respectable collection at home by now.

This winter white wool coat by Benetton is a relatively recent acquisition of mine – I’ve had it for two years now :) When I like a coat I usually wear it as long as I can so many of the coats I own could be called vintage by now. I also have a penchant for good quality fabrics so being able to wear such an item for several seasons is actually a plus. The only problem is that coats usually take up quite a lot of storage space so this is doing nothing for the manageability of my closet. I am absolutely in love with this coat’s wide collar and white/ivory is one of my favourite shades for winter.

Excuse the slightly blurry quality of the photos – my photographer must have been freezing to death the way his hands were shaking. But seriously, after a really mild autumn, temperatures have finally dropped to single digits here in Berlin.

Winter White Coat | Caliope Couture


I have styled the coat with an all-time classic, a paisley silk scarf and matching leather driving gloves.You seldom see these on people nowadays but I have always loved them. They seem like a relic from another era. Funnily enough, I don’t even have a driver’s licence.

    I love your coat. I always like a light colored coat in the winter to brighten up my day. I have a lot of old coats as well that take up a lot of closet space. However, I’m always glad to have them when the weather dips. You look great!

    I love your coat and the winter white is a great choice! I have a long coat that is a winter staple and just made it to the ten-year mark. I decided to retire it this season, and purchased a black and white number that I’m excited to wear. Your over-the-knee boots and nail color are stunning, too!

    • caliope

      Thank you very much Vanessa! Black and white is a great colour for winter coats too :)
