Throwback Thursday: Louise Roe's Trench Vest and White Jeans Look for Less

Louise Roe wears a white shirt and white jeans topped with a military style trench vest and pointy toe flats.
Here's someone we don't feature nearly enough: Louise Roe! I came across this look of hers from 2014 and thought it's just as relevant today.

Starting with an all-white canvas of a white button down shirt and white distressed jeans, the style trendsetter added an olive military style trench vest, pointy toe flats and structured top handle bag to create her look.

I think this outfit is so right for spring, and couldn't believe that the Gap vest I found to recreate it is under $40 and still in stock in all sizes! You could layer this piece so many ways.

Also, I snuck in a bracelet from the Sugarfix by Baublebar jewelry collection that's now BOGO at Check out all their tassel earrings, too, so gorgeous and perfectly priced! If you buy one spring accessory, make it a pair of tassel earrings.

I have the Rockstar from Old Navy and they're not see through (although when I asked my husband he said they are a tiny bit. Oops!) I wear them with nude color undies for insurance.

I was at Target this weekend and the white jeans I tried on also passed the test, however, I couldn't find them on Can you check your local store?

I'll keep looking for more options! Thanks for the great question.
