A new film about fashion royalty Coco Chanel is set to hit cinemas this Friday. Coco Before Chanel looks at the life of the icon before she launched the Chanel brand.
Whilst we’d all like to own a piece of Chanel, the £1000 + price tag for most of their items makes it no more than a fashion fantasy for most of us. However, with such simple, classic styles it’s easy to recreate the look at a fraction of the price.
The key to the look is simple, understated, and most importantly, monochrome. A pair of black and white ballet pumps have been seen in Chanel collections for decades. Pretty Ballerinas have this great square-toed, quilted pair, that come in a beige/cream colour with a black trim. They cost £145 and you can get them here or in their store in Mayfair, London.
ASOS have this Contrast Jersey Longline Cardigan which will add a touch of Chanel to any outfit. Complete with signature gold trim buttons, it can be worn with a casual weekend look or over an evening outfit. It costs £22.
