6 Fresh Ways To Wear Coach Spring Summer 2016 | Clozette

Get ready for the resurgence of the new Coach – where leather, creativity and craftsmanship meet again à la 1941 – this time with a refreshing touch that is both classic and modern at the same time.


To celebrate its 75th birthday this year, Coach debuted their ‘Coach 1941’ Spring Summer 2016 collection with its first-ever runway show in New York. We wish we were there, mostly because we wanted a piece of the sartorial action. So imagine our glee when the collection hit our local stores. Because if there’s one thing we love about Coach, it’s the American brand’s strong hold in the leather goods and accessories department. The story began in 1941, but it is most certainly not ending anytime soon!

While Coach 1941’s Spring Summer 2016 is 100% Americana-inspired to celebrate the brand’s heritage, it is also 100% made for wherever you are. Whether you’re the artsy-fartsy who spends your days in art galleries, or the girl about town on your routine café or bar runs, the collection’s footwear is going to be a staple in your personal wardrobe. Tried, tested and proven, we round up six fresh ways to wear our favourite Coach Spring Summer 2016 footwear picks.

Grunge, punk, goth, emo—some people say that these are so 2005. But who are we kidding? For some of us, indulging in these subcultures’ ways and fashion never truly stopped.

With all the mainstream trends hitting us here and there, read up to refresh your memory on how to go “alternative” and reawaken your inner rebel.

Fringes and Bold Dyes

With all those galaxy and mermaid hair trends going on, what sets the “alternative” hairstyle apart is edge. And no, you don’t have to go full on one-eyed fringe-mode circa 2000s emo-punk. The modern way to rock the "alternative" style is to go for edgier, messier cuts and dye your hair in unconventional colours.

Eyeliner. Lots of it. 



The great thing about alternative style is that you don’t have to be that skilled in drawing winged tips. Kohl eyeliner would be your best friend since pulling off this look requires a lot of smudging to give your eyes that smokey rockstar vibe.


Dark Lips 



Step aside nude lippies! Dark plums, deep reds, and even black is the way to go. Some might say that going bold on both your eyes and lips is a bad thing; but sometimes it's great to stray from the norm.


Black Shirt, Black Pants, Black Shoes. 



“I’ll stop wearing black if they invent a darker colour”-- if you’ve said this repeatedly for as long as you could remember, then you’re already one step ahead! Throw in a red plaid button down to add a splash of colour to bring dimension to your OOTD.


Go subtle on the accessories. 



Don't drown your look with accessories. Simple studded earrings, a thin-chained necklace or a couple of knuckle rings are good enough to complete your look.
