Coco Chanel has always been one of my biggest style icons, ever since I researched her timeless fashion aged 8 for a primary school project. Since then my love for her classy style has grown and grown and I really admire her work in freeing women from the confines of pre WWI fashion.
Unfortunately, as an average teenage girl, I cannot afford any actual Chanel products. That’s where the idea to take Chanel’s iconic style and recreate it on a budget began, for those fashionistas working with small amounts of money, do not fear, you too can have access to Chanel’s gorgeous fashion sense.
It would make sense, when recreating such well known fashion, to turn to dupes. My favourite dupe website has to be SheIn.com, it’s great not only for affordable dupes of high end fashion but also for original pieces.
This gorgeous tweed dress with pussybow detail is clearly Chanel inspired from the simplistic black and white colour scheme to the use of tweed which Chanel used for her iconic Chanel Suit. The mini dress length represents how Chanel liberated women from the excesses of ballgowns and it creates a chic look.
I paired the dress with these Chanel inspired shoes; the black toe cap takes inspiration from Chanel’s collection and classic style. These are an easily wearable height and the ankle strap means that you can tighten them to fit your feet comfortably.
There will be a YouTube video up on this look later today and if you’re reading this when it’s already up I’ll insert a link here.
