Coco Chanel is a true style icon and her influence on fashion has left an indelible imprint with her signature style of simplicity and elegance translated into her tweed jackets, black and white dominant colors, and nautical stripes. Her statement accessories such as the quilted leather handbag and faux pearls have been translated by numerous other designers past and present. She also has been the designer credited as the inventor of the little black dress.
I love the influence of Coco Chanel interpreted in this modern tweed jacket by Storets. The crop length and silver metallic thread woven through the tweed makes this jacket classic but yet modern and fresh. Storets often offers matching set pieces in their line which is a savings value. This “Karina Boucle” ensemble included not only the jacket and matching mini skirt but the turtleneck as well. I love the edgy take on this turtleneck with the side open neck detail off to one side. It is a very versatile piece that can be used with this ensemble or alone over a pair of skinny jeans. Storets is great for petites because many of their clothing pieces are cut smaller in the arm length. They will often note in their description if something runs small as they did for this ensemble.
One of the enduring identifying trademarks of a true Chanel piece is not only their CC logo but the camellia as well. Coco Chanel had an enduring fascination with this beautiful flower. The camellia silk brooch is still made today and the camellia can be seen not only on the buttons of garments but on clasps of accessories and as the focus of design on her jewelry. Descanso Gardens is known for their beautiful camellias and I love to go see them their in the spring.
I accessorized my look with a mini studded quilted double silver chained Rebecca Minkoff handbag in excellent condition from Poshmark. You can find your own mini bag in various colors from different Poshmark sellers. I also am wearing the Michael Michael Kors Viera embellished leather ankle boots & Bobbi Brown’s Hollywood Red lip gloss.
