Sometimes I joke that I'm psychic. To further prove my point, a week before I was recruited for the Coach Fall 2016 campaign, I was cleaning up my closet and thought to myself how I still like the brand. I have a few ancient bags and shoes with the traditional "c print" that I still wear from time-to-time. Coach's re-brand is classic, sleek, and versatile. My goal was to prove how easy it is to incorporate this pebble leather bag into a broad range of wardrobes.
I chose to style the bag multiple ways and my first example is an everyday look. I would wear this style for work or to meet a friend for lunch. I paired the bag, from the Rogue 1941 Collection, with a side slit knit and high waisted, straight leg denim. This color sweater is out of my comfort zone because I typically do not like the color orange. However, I have fallen in love with burnt orange this season and was surprised I could get away with wearing this shade. I don't have many things this color in my closet, yet I find myself gravitating towards it all the time. I topped off the look with a simple bracelet, cognac mule booties, and a black pea coat.
Business Casual Look
I took it up a notch for my second look and went business casual. Although we do not typically wear crop tops in a business setting, this look is dressy enough to adopt the nickname. I would also wear something like this to dinner or a party. The velvet trend is in full force and I wanted to bring out my lavish blazer to play. The texture stood out without distraction against the all black. I added suede platform wedges for an additional edge and completed the outfit with slim dress pants. My pants are ankle length and have rouged detailing on the ankles. I am 5'5 but ankle length pants work best for me because I have short legs (tip for petite girls).
High Fashion Look
My last look was inspired by Coach's outerwear line and I decided to play on a theme I used in a previous post, "The Secret Garden". I noticed that the brand now carries a letterman jacket and wanted to mimic their high fashion look whilst adding my own edge. I chose a peculiar pewter bomber jacket and tulle tutu combination. I was hoping the pink skirt would bring out similar undertones in the jacket, but instead it ended up looking more silver. In any case, as I was walking to the Shakespeare Garden, in Golden Gate Park, everyone I passed was doing double takes. It's safe to say this spunky look is a show stopper.
These three looks are my favorite from the campaign. I am ecstatic and grateful I was able to be a part of it. I hope you are inspired to wear this bag in any way you choose!
