I’m always looking for versatility in the items I wear and that’s what I found in this cargo jacket. When I lived in San Francisco, it seemed as though every girl had one and when I caved and bought one for myself, I had a “now, I get it” moment.
At first glance, this is a casual jacket. However, it can be transformed with the right pairing of clothing. In this instance, I started with an all black base: a cozy turtleneck and ponte knit pants with leather detailing. I used bold accents like leopard booties with gold buckles and jewelry to tie it all together – not to mention, a bright red lip! This has been a heavily repeated look for weekend errands, brunch with the girls and a dressy casual date. You’re probably drooling over the boots right? I know, I can hardly believe I found them too…and for $18!

TLG Tip: If there is ever a piece that you are having trouble styling, remember you can always turn to an all-black base. Skirt, pants, dressy blouse – the possibilities are endless. If you are less flashy with jewelry, don’t underestimate the power of a bold lip. OH! And if you love my Coach bag but don’t want to pay full price, hit up Article Consignment NOW because they have another one in stock.
