I don’t do fashion, I am fashion is one of Coco Chanel’s most famous quotes. She is one of the most iconic designers in the fashion history and her name still lives on today. Chanel has become more than just a brand, it’s a lifestyle. The way to live in true Chanel fashion starts right here with your outfit.
To tweed or not to tweed
Ask anyone about Chanel and somehow they will mention tweed. The woolen fabric has been their trade mark since the get go and has never gone out of style. This season it’s all about white, pastels and bold colours. I opted for a yellow toned tweed jacket this time to add a pop of colour to my outfit.
Chanel’s ss18 collection was all about patent leather so for this outfit I combined my tweed jacket with a leather skirt. Adding a leather touch to your outfit automatically makes the look more edgy and less preppy.
Pardon my french
Coco Chanel was a real française so what better accessory to wear than a french beret. They were originally worn in the military but today they are the hottest hats on the market. Choose a leather version if you want to spice up any outfit or wear a plain black one.
