I love JCrews coats and will be purchasing one on my trip back to the US in a few weeks since I currently live in Europe and will be unable to when it is actually cold. Anyway, I wear dark jeans and pants most the time with my jeans tucked into black boots. I really like the Light Pewter coat (http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Wom...ategory/outerwear/wool/PRDOVR~17506/17506.jsp) but should I go with black b/c the contrast will be too much. All light from neck down to above knees then super dark?

I don't think it will be too much of a contract and that coat is gorgeous! I've often seen people wearing lighter coats with much darker items of clothing and it also looks good!

I really don't think it matters. Kate Moss for instance wears a Burberry trench with dark tights, shoes etc and I think it looks alright.


The cut of the JCrew coat is beautiful, very classic. I say go for it.

The light pewter would be very versatile as you could wear during the winter and any really cold days in Spring.

Hope this helps.
