Simple Style Inspiration from Coco Chanel

By Covetedclassics @covetedclassics

I have been reading a biography of Coco Chanel and have been inspired by her philosophy of style. Recognized as one of the most elegant designers of our time, her love for pearls and ornate jewellery often charaterized her style. But, I find it interesting that she also believed that elegance was achieved through simplicity, with her now infamously quoted statement, "Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance". This week, I took my style cues from Chanel and opted for simple colour and fabric combinations.

 This cream cashmere sweater is worn over a sheer black blouse with a lace collar and cuffs. I like the unexpected pairing and think that it makes an outfit more intereting when you mix materials.

 Pointed toe pumps are the epitome of simple elegance in my mind.

The only thing missing is a simple strand of pearls tucked under my collar or a gold Chanel brooch circa Coco's time - the ultimate ode to Chanel.
