Chanel has always been an inspiration for as long as I can remember not only for her designs but her business genius, her style and the way she liberated women from the restraints of the corset.
She re-invented the way women dress, borrowed menswear from her lovers but gave it a feminine twist. Every women has something with a Chanel influence in her wardrobe from a simple row of pearls to a Breton striped T shirt, an iconic boucle jacket or a LBD.
I have a bit of a passion for Chanel inspired pieces so I have a few in the wardrobe so I thought I would put together a post on how I have styled them up.
My dream is to own a vintage Chanel jacket but I really want a Chanel Chanel which hardly ever go up for sale and when they do they run into thousands of pounds so I have built a collection of look alikes for now but you never know one day??
So here are a few of my Chanel-esque looks.
I really enjoyed styling up these outfits taking inspiration from one the most iconic designers of all time.
Next up will be Gucci of course as for anyone who follows my blog or Instagram will know I have a bit of an obsession for that too!!
