The Look for Less: Saint Laurent Camo Jacket, Plus 4 Ways to Wear It

Saint Laurent Jacket Look for Less

LEFT // RIGHT


Camo jackets are one of those pieces that never seem to go out of style. I'm going to go ahead and say it's a wardrobe essential, one that can be worn all four seasons no matter what your style persona happens to be - preppy, edgy or all-around chic. Saint Laurent sets the bar high with their $1,350 jacket that's perfectly oversized, boasts the perfect camo print, and has just enough detail to keep it interesting without becoming passé in a year or two. Of course we found an amazing look for less that's under $100, something you can wash and wear over and over again, so it's worth paying a tiny bit more than usual. Read on to shop the look for less, plus check out my round-up of 4 ways to wear the trend styled by four top trendsetters (click the links below to see their outfit details!)

On Point: Priyanka Chopra's Denim Jacket and Metallic Cap-Toe Sneakers

Priyanka Chopra wears a denim jacket and black skinny jeans with Miu Miu cap-toe skate sneakers.
If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that a statement-making shoe can truly transform an outfit from basic to seriously stylish. Priyanka Chopra takes that lesson to heart in this casual minimalist streetstyle look, amping up a basic white t-shirt, denim jacket and black skinny jeans look with her eye-catching Miu Miu metallic cap-toe skate sneakers ($595, also available here, here and here). I'm also loving how the actress added a casual beanie and scarf to the look, no doubt to stay warm but also to add personality to the look. My style is very much like an off-off-duty celeb LOL so I'll definitely be recreating this look - and you can, too, with the curated finds below - everything's under $45!
