The Cool Girl’s Wardrobe Reimagined | Clozette
2016 has been a whirlwind of style inspiration, from giving us a fresh take on classic fashion to reinterpreting the image of what’s cool, this year’s sartorial journey has been enigmatic and celebratory of history, street-style and sub-cultures. This has paved the way for women to embrace diversity in their wardrobe and fully express spunk and confidence, creating a new-breed of cool-girls who are confident in who they are, where they want to go, and who they want to be.

The Coach 1941 Fall Collection is just that, reimagining the concept of “cool” through the perfect balance of heritage and modern style. The collection is all about blending the old and the new, the hard and the soft, and the cool and the classic – perfect for the modern day woman who juggles between contrasting elements with ease and confidence as she goes through daily life.

So how do you channel the cool-girl style? Take a bold leap and make a statement with these picks from Coach 1941 Fall Collection.

--------------------------

Motif Crewneck Sweater 

 
Nostalgia and the re-imagination of the classics form the backbone of this collection, and the Motif Crewneck Sweater fully captures that essence of prep-school-girl all grown up. Pair it with the Leather A-line Skirt for a blend of texture to give the look that “ready-to-take-on-the-city” vibe.
--------------------------

Western Embroidery Rogue Bag & High Vamp Loafers With Shield



To balance the mix of textures prevalent through the collection, opt for a structured bag. Inspired by both Western wear and the modern New York subway, the Western Embroidery Rogue Bag blends the softness of floral detailing with bold stripes for a play on contrast.

And since this collection is full of edge and eclecticism, be fearless and go bold with your footwear with this pair of High Vamp Loafers With Shield. A reimagined version of hockey shoes, this statement piece is loud and bold with its embossed and shimmering leather, cabochons, studs, and an Edwardian-inspired chunky heel. It combines the extreme elements of classic glam and varsity-playoffs in pure Coach elegance.


--------------------------

Buckle Square Sunglasses


What’s a cool-girl look without statement sunglasses? Straying away from typical black frames, the Buckle Square Sunglasses offers a hint of spunk without losing the element of mystery with its glamorously oversized frames. Inspired by the ‘70s, it’s a throwback to hippie-glamour; but modernized and made spunky with the addition of the iconic Coach buckle hardware as a temple detail.


--------------------------

Coach and Coach 41 Championship Rings



Accessories can take an outfit from an eight-to-a-ten if curated just right. Inspired by both traditional championship games and glamour statement pieces, these Coach and Coach 41 Championship Rings are cool-girl staples. These silver rings encrusted with Swarovski crystals not only exude luxury but also celebrates the spunk of street-style and prep-school nostalgia.


--------------------------

Coach New York Eau De Toilette



Nothing fully captures the vibe and aura of a cool-girl style than a signature scent. So to complete the look, go for a spritz of the Coach New York Eau De Toilette. After all, fragrances seem to have this power to capture the spirit and soul of a city; and nothing speaks “cool-girl” more than a fragrance inspired by the spontaneous energy and style of New York City.

With notes of bright, sparkling raspberry combined with hints of Turkish roses, the Coach New York Eau De Toilette is a musky, suede-like fragrance that represents the free-spirit and authentic cool-girl attitude of the quintessential Coach girl.

Legally Blonde was a great movie, and Elle Woods was an even greater character. She broke barriers in her law school, proved she wasn’t a stereotypical “dumb blonde,” and made something of herself. But if she’s famous for anything, it’s for her love of pink. Pink shoes, pink suits, pink résumés, pink everything! She made wearing pink look easy, peasy, and lemon squeezy.

However, if you’re a fashionista, you know how hard it is to rock pink. Wear too much of it and you turn into a version of her, which looked great in the movie, but is not suited for real life. Though, if you wear too little, it won’t give your ensemble the ‘pop’ you want.

Mastering the art of wearing pink requires a lot of trial and error. But you won't have to go through that anymore because below we have the styling tips that will help you wear this stunning and feminine shade without heading into classic Elle Woods territory!

--------------------------


Mix different shades

There are a lot of pink hues out there so don’t be afraid to mix up the shades to play up your outfit. If you’re going to spend the day at the office, more muted pinks will go well together for an elegant and professional look. But if you’re heading out, you can opt to pair a bold shade with something softer so you don’t overload your OOTD. Simply put: it's all about balance when it comes to wearing pink-on-pink. 

--------------------------


Give your look a neutral touch

One of the keys to rocking an all-pink ensemble is by adding neutral colours here and there to tie the whole look together. It can be in the form of your shoes, or top, or purse, or your jacket! Whatever piece of your outfit you decide to wear in a neutral shade, we guarantee it will make your outfit look sophisticated and not something that came from the 80’s.


--------------------------


Rock a bold pattern

When in doubt, go for a pink piece with a bold pattern. We find graphic prints to be the best for this because once it’s paired with a sleek accessory and a pair of killer shoes, that’s all you’ll need to go from work to cocktail hour to date night!


--------------------------


Cut matters

When wearing this hue, you want to look like an 'adult', not a child. And the best way to do that is to have whatever you’re wearing tailored to your height and body type. So whenever you want to rock a pink outfit, make sure it fits you like a glove to give it that chic and professional finish.
