5 Things We Learned From Coco Chanel

Yes, she may be my ideal Role Model a I may or may not be completely biased when it comes to her, but in all honestly she does have some pearls of wisdom that go with those strings of pearls she iconized for…

5) The Power of the LBD
LBD mean “Little Black Dreas”. Even if it’s work, a cocktail party or a date, think about it-even for a second- what can work “your magic” and POP some color like an LBD? It is a timless wardrobe staple that- as definition rings out – can be interchanged and used for various occasions. A simple vin god accessories and you have a completely different dress! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it was Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s current creative director, who said, “one is never over-dressed or underdressed in a little black dress.” JUST saying.

4) Tweed For Any Season
A symbol of luxury, and not to mention a signature look for the French brand. You know, 1+1=2. Let’s not be silly.

3) A Signature Scent

2) Chains Are For Ladies
This is not a 50 Shades “thing”- though it would probably equivocate to perhaps 35-40 Shades- but it was Coco Chanel started the accoutrement trend when she became tired of having to carry her bag in her hands. Yet, Karl Lagerfeld has found many ways to modernise this idea.

1) Pearls: The Perfect Finishing Touch
Coco Chanel fell in love with pearls after receiving them as a gift. It was from there she began pinning them to her clothes and her hair. They became a symbol for longevity, has now become a iconic of Coco & of the brand—and is seen throughout the ready-to-wear and accessories collections.
