For those in the United States, I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! I had a nice time relaxing and seeing friends and family. I also ordered some last minute baby stuff, the accumulation of which is starting to severely test my Konmari method attempts.
Thank you all for your comments and emails about my sale post last week. I was happy to hear that many of you were able to hop on Nordstrom’ deal on Longchamp bags, and I think I have some twins out there of my beige and black Chanel jackets as well!
Now, On the topic of Chanel jackets – even on sale, these suckers are expensive, so for each one I always have to make sure I’ll get decent wear out of them. I’ve received a few emails asking for Chanel/Chanel esque styling ideas, and I thought I would share some of my favorite inspiration with all of you. Let’s start with one of the ultimate French cool girls, Vanessa Paradis.
The Cambon bag she’s holding on the left might look dated to some, but that black jacket still looks fresh and modern. I think this was from a 2004 campaign? So more than a decade back! The jacket on the right is one of my favorites ever, from 2013. Love how she wears both with jeans.
Next up, a bit more formal:
On the left, Poppy Delevingne in a 2015 cruise jacket (you can see the black version in my spring sale post – she wears it much better than my dress form). On the right, Christine Centenera in a 2013 double breasted jacket and skirt combo.
Now, some examples in gray!
Miroslava Duma on the left – I like how she wears her Chanel usually, very youthful – and on the right the ultra cool Clémence Poésy, who always pairs her Chanel with the perfect casual pieces and perfect “messy” hair.
Next, how about some ladies in white?
Miranda Kerr and Cameron Diaz both pairing their jackets with jeans. I love the look of a cream Chanel jacket – I’m still looking for my perfect one. Though I think I would be paranoid about stains.
Next, Natasha Goldenberg and Kate Moss, both in the same cream/black tipped Chanel jacket.
…our favorite, Kate Moss, in a cardigan from 2011 and a jacket from 2007. I love both of these looks (I’ve posted them before on the blog) and it’s due both to Kate’s styling as well as the classic nature of the jacket themselves, that the outfits look perfectly modern today.
Do you wear Chanel style jackets/cardigans? What are some of your favorite inspirations for styling them?
