I have no idea. I realized when I signed up for Adrienne & Jill’s Chanel Inspired Challenge that I really didn’t know that much about Chanel. I’m afraid I haven’t studied the history of fashion much (or at all) and I have only vague, half-formed ideas about what “Chanel-inspired” might mean.
And I think most of those ideas come from pop culture and a movie I saw where Audrey Tautou played Chanel. From that movie, I learned that Coco liked pants:
And striped shirts:
From pop culture, mostly this outfit from The Devil Wears Prada, I learned that today* Chanel means layered necklaces:
I took that very, very meager store of knowledge and came up with this:
I paired my black trousers (Vince Camuto via Nordstrom) with a striped shirt (Old Navy), a layered necklace (v. old) and pointy toe pumps (thrifted). Yes, yes, I know; they should have chosen me instead of Audrey for that role.
To see more interpretations of Chanel-inspired style,visit Jill at Everything Just So.
And have a Happy Wednesday!
* Okay, not even today; that movie came out in 2006.
