Sometimes the best style inspo can be found right in your office. Every workplace has that coworker who manages to pull looks together effortlessly day after day (and whose closet we dream of raiding). When we’re feeling bored with our own wardrobes, they’re the person we can count on to inspire our next pick-up. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery (just don’t make it too obvious).
Here at Bustle, the most stylish women in the office have perfected their signature looks by mixing and matching vintage and modern. These women know how to create an outfit that is entirely their own, and pairing each look with the perfect bag is key to a flawless execution. In partnership with Coach, we’re showing you how Bustle’s most stylish women are wearing the iconic brand’s latest vintage-inspired It bags. Prepare for some serious style inspo, ahead.
Queen of all things minimal, Kate’s signature style is composed of soft shades of beige and blue. When it comes to accessorizing, she prefers practical, streamlined bags. Kate pairs this classic Coach silhouette with her favorite trench over an oversized knit and wide-legged trouser.
Obsessed with mixing kitschy vintage pieces with sleek, rock’n’roll silhouettes, Oona loves this carryall for its ‘70s touch. Keeping it classy and casual, she pairs it with a chunky knit and a silk foulard for a windy day to wrap around its handles. Her all-white ensemble has us dreaming of beach-side picnics.
This archive-inspired bag is right in line with Jenna’s signature style. Perfect for stepping out for a lunch meeting or rooftop happy hour with friends, this bag’s playful details add just the right amount of texture to an all-black ensemble. Paired with a chunky Chelsea boot and a multi-tier dress, this bag complements her signature gold hoops.
The kind of bohemian we all wish we could achieve, Elly’s signature aesthetic is very hippie-meets-contemporary. She pairs her statement crossbody with a delicate patchwork slip dress, combat boots, and a ‘90s mesh top. This whole look makes us want to light a chic candle and turn on our favorite throwback records.
