This look was put together with the street style inspiration that can be found on my blog immediately following this article. The young lady in the street style image wore a similar vintage army jacket with black leggings, a red purse and white boots. I dissected her outfit and rebuilt it with links to each article of clothing so you can buy this entire outfit.
Leggings are giving jeans a run for their money these days. Everyone is opting to wear the comfy workout pants rather than slacks, jeans or khakis. I'm here to tell everyone that just because you have a nice butt, that doesn't mean leggings are always flattering.
Simply wearing black skinny jeans, instead of leggings, adds a tailored look that compliments the loose army jacket. Where, the leggings make the outfit look frumpy and uninteresting.
The red purse adds a very nice pop of color to the outfit. However, if you're going for a "pop" of color you probably shouldn't have a giant purse. So, for my revised outfit and added a lovely quilted satchel purse.
Lastly, the white boots she was wearing were probably just shoes of opportunity. Which means they were probably the first boots she grabbed. We all have those days. I chose to replace them with a nice dark brown boot made from vegan leather. Their nice gold buckles bring out similar tones in the purse and jacket buttons.
This look is completed with vintage-inspired sunglasses and a Starbucks venti green tea.
