There’s just something about a girl who exudes an independent spirit in both her life and her wardrobe. With a penchant for mixing unexpected silhouettes with tough accents, she’s a pro at creating unique looks. Since Coach’s spring collection—inspired by rugged Americana—is filled with such statement pieces, we took to the desert to show you how to nail the carefree vibe that’ll be everywhere as the weather warms up. Photographer power couple Michaela Wissén and Riley Harper (motorcycles in tow, naturally) demonstrate how to channel the rebellious look against the beautiful backdrop of Pioneer Town Motel in Joshua Tree, California. From studded leather jackets to whimsical frocks, endless outfit inspiration for the new season lies ahead.
Pair a tough leather topper with a sheer blouse and skirt for a head-turning contrast. Accessorize with embellished, moccasin-inspired sneakers and a rich fringed purse.
Temper a sweet prairie frock with a biker-inspired patchwork moto jacket. Add edge to a girly ensemble with pointed-toe flats and a chain-strap bag.
Studded adornments add edge to a classic trench. Combine it with a ladylike dress and heels for the coolest juxtaposition. Carry an eye-catching printed tote to store all your daytime essentials.
Spice up a leather vest by tossing it over a fiery red dress and complete the look with a studded, chunky-heel sandal and a chain-strap bag with fringe.
A sporty embroidered souvenir jacket partners surprisingly well with a girly patchwork skirt for an unexpected result.
