Back-to-School with Kohl's: Utility Jacket and Lace-Up Flats

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kohl’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

Pair a cargo jacket with a striped tee and lace-up flats for a chic back-to-school look.


Back-to-school fashion is all about finding versatile pieces that you can wear multiple ways, which is why this Mudd Embroidered Utility Jacket was a clear choice for me as I was putting together my third look for Kohl's (see my first and second looks here and here). To say I'm obsessed would be an understatement: You can wear utility jackets with ripped jeans and Converse, shorts and combat boots, or even a flirty dress and heels. #musthaveforreal The embroidery on this particular utility jacket makes it feel special while the black-and-white color palette is still easy to mix and match with everything in your closet.

I paired my jacket with a striped tee for some light print-mixing, then added feminine lace-up flats to balance out the rugged appeal of the jacket. Candie's always has the cutest shoes, not to mention this lace-up style is incredibly comfortable. I walked around in them all day after snapping these pics and my feet couldn't have been happier. I'm also really happy with the jacket - it's the perfect layering piece that you can wear to and from class. Or even to the gym - I could envision this jacket styled with black leggings and some sneaks (like these Nikes) for a cool athleisure look. For reference I'm wearing a size Medium in the jacket, and the shoes run true to size.

Finally, I told you guys I picked up these jeggings in multiple colors including the black ones I'm wearing in this post. They're super soft, and the high-rise is really comfortable and flattering (yet not awkwardly high). I've always advocated shopping juniors to save money, and denim is no exception - especially when I want to experiment with the latest trends...I got these in the burgundy and olive colors, too!

Head to Kohls.com to shop my exact look (everything's under $41.99! Even less with coupons!) and check out the Kohl’s Juniors Apparel Page for more great back-to-school fashions.
