If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I’m a sucker for good wordplay and, of course, Coach’s menswear line. The Coach’s fall 2015 menswear line showcases a full collection of casual wear that has enough shape and well tailored lines to carry any Fashionista/o from any of their everyday errands while having enough edge to stand out against the crowd. My favorite looks in the collection feature fitted sweaters and structured leather jackets that when worn by a Fashionista, give off the perfect nod to menswear’s structured cool.
To emulate the casual cool of the collection, I began by pairing my favorite skinnies with a structured sweater, perfect for those warmer classrooms or (if you’re lucky) warmer days. Keeping with the polished and edgy theme of the look, I opted for a vegan leather jacket that keeps the shoulders looking as broad and squared off as the looks featured in Coach’s menswear line.
For the accessories, I decided to add my own twist to the look by adding a plaid wool blanket scarf that simultaneously warms up the look and adds softness to all the hard edges. I finished off with an edgy pair of Dr. Martens to give the look an extra bit of unexpected cool and personality.
If you’re looking for inspiration this winter/spring, don’t be afraid to channel a few menswear lines to freshen up your look and to add that extra excitement you may have been missing. After all, women in menswear are pretty chic, right?
