We tagged along with Always Judging’s Courtney Trop and her friend Alex as they set out on a fall road trip just outside of Los Angeles. Whether cruising through Topanga Canyon and grabbing lunch at The Inn at the Seventh Ray or relaxing beachside, the girls were decked in tough-meets-chic outfits fit for a renegade adventure. Brimming with modern, biker-girl edge, utilitarian elements and urban sophistication, Coach’s latest collection was the perfect fit for the twosome’s spontaneous adventure. Read on for exclusive photos from Courtney and Alex’s cruise off the beaten path and shop their innovative fall style, featuring luxe leather, soft shearling and a distinct devil-may-care attitude.
Tough-girl chic is redefined by a throwback, embellished leather topper.
A shearling vest and printed blouse teamed with leather pants and studded booties just may be the new It girl uniform.
Move leather from summer into fall by pairing it with a tee and heeled loafers. Swap it out for a sweater as the temperature plummets.
Shearling accented outerwear should be topping your most-wanted list this season.
Who says feminine can't be fierce?
A cozy sweater dress is a fall must-have. Add in mohair texture for a truly luxe seasonal staple.
Transition into fall by pairing boots with dresses and skirts. Add opaque tights once the weather turns.
A studded ankle boot in a rich suede gives a dose of edge to an otherwise feminine style.
It's all in the details: Layering a printed blouse under a patterned sweater dress or adding a neck scarf to a prim sweater-and-skirt ensemble adds the perfect touch of whimsy to the overall look.
Schoolgirl chic has never looked so cool.
Don't be afraid to mix textures—like mohair and shearling—for a rich, tactile combo ideal for the chilly days of fall.
There is perhaps no piece of outerwear cooler than an oversize, shearling lined motorcycle jacket. It punches up everything from denim to a frilly dress.
Sometimes the best accessory is a great girlfriend.
