Ever since Stuart Vevers took over the position of creative director at Coach in 2013, the label has been moving towards a more high-fashion vibe. The clothing is amazingly fab and super-comfortable and those signature monogrammed bags are gone.

Because of such amazing progress, I knew I had to share Coach’s Spring 2015 RTW collection. With its overall muted, pastel color palette and quirky aspects – such as graphic tees and printed totes – all of the looks from Coach’s new spring collection are truly ready-to-wear.

Are you as in love with these spring looks from Coach as we are, but can’t seem to part with your hard-earned paychecks? Continue reading for three wallet-friendly outfits inspired by looks straight off Coach’s runway:

1. Polished ’70s

Fashion from the ’70s has been all over the runways these last few seasons, so it’s no surprise Coach would take a leaf out of the trend book. These dark wash, bell-bottom pants are a subtle nod to the era, but by pairing them with a sleek blazer, the ensemble manages to look sophisticated rather than boho-inspired.

Get the Look:


Product Info: Top- ASOS, Pants- Bluefly, Blazer- River Island, Shoes- Urbanog, Bag- Forever 21, Choker-Topshop

Recreate this first look by pairing bell-bottoms in a similar wash with a cool graphic tee in a subdued hue. Slip on a slightly oversized but fitted orange blazer, as well as neutral flats. Finish the look with a bejeweled choker and a pale blue crossbody bag.

2. Quirky and Knit

One of my favorite style combos is an oversized sweater paired with a skirt, so this outfit is definitely my favorite out of the three. The oversized top works so well with the fitted skirt, and this getup is the perfect blend of casual and slightly dressy elements. Dashes of color throughout a muted color palette makes this look even more fashion-forward.

Get the Look:


Product Info: Top- H&M, Skirt- Forever 21, Shoes- Topshop, Bag- Accessorize, Sunglasses- Target, Choker-Forever 21, Long Necklace- Forever 21

Start off with a neutral sweater that has just the teensiest pops of color. Pair it with a fitted white skirt, then accessorize by layering necklaces with different lengths. Brown clogs are a trendy pick, while a printed tote and sunglasses complete this brunch-ready look.

3. Cargo Girl

This final ensemble combines a utilitarian vibe with more playful, girly aspects. Pairing a graphic tee with a cargo-inspired vest would have never crossed my mind! However, Vevers not only made this look work, but created an enviable outfit for spring.

Get the Look:


Product Info: Top- ASOS, Skirt- Missguided, Vest- Anthropologie, Shoes- ModCloth, Bag- New Look, Choker-Forever 21, Eyeliner (in “Via Veneto”)- Sephora

Channel this last Coach outfit by combining a graphic tee with a dusty pink fitted skirt. Layer a cargo vest on top, then slip on brown combat booties rather than clogs to truly harness that utilitarian chic look. Finalize your fab getup with a choker necklace, a bright yellow bag, and tons of eyeliner á la model’s beauty look.
