Coco Before Chanel - get Chanel Chic

With the release of the movie Coco Beore Chanel, Coco Chanel's iconic style is back on the fashion radar. Coco Chanel’s fashion-style is a symbol of traditional elegance. Her designs are classics and emanate minimilistic chic - timeless and tasteful is what her style is.
She was the one who gave birth to the most stylist and versatile 'Little Black Dress' and she is supposed to be the inventor of fashion jewellery. She liked to mix imitation jewels with real jewels and often combined massive amounts with sportswear. She never overloaded her clothes with useless details.

To get her covetable style think LBD, quilted bags, classic jacket, cardigan, pearls.
