By the time we reached Amsterdam in our travels (catch up on the rest with my guides to Copenhagen and Prague), I had exhausted most of what was in my suitcase. So I reached for the classics. These black, distressed skinny jeans were worn constantly, both for flights and long days of walking around and this navy coat is so good it made the spot as my only coat for the trip (with heavyweight items I try to pick an option that can be dressed up or down and matches with everything – this one covers all those bases).
SHOP THE STORY
Navy and black are such a classic combination in my opinion that you don’t need a whole lot more than that. I mixed in these stripes, a great wool hat, a classic watch (that I kept on New York time throughout the trip – which made for easy reference) and this cross body bag (I carried it almost every day of the trip… and ever since, it’s the perfect size for day or night) and felt casual/comfortable enough for museum hopping by day and grabbing drinks later that evening along the canal. These pictures were taken along what’s known as ‘Golden Bend’ – a section of canals that was built up by Amsterdam’s wealthier residents, which allowed them to have much wider homes than seen everywhere else in the city. Talk about a stoop crush.
