If there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that Chanel will always be chic. The quilted purses and little tweed jackets that Coco Chanel made famous are still a huge part of Karl Lagerfeld’s collections to this day. Personally, I love the way that modern girls manage to work a classic Chanel-esque piece into their wardrobe while still maintaining a certain edge. The best way to achieve this look is by pairing your tweed with something unexpected. A pair of jeans, shorts, leather pants, or a graphic tee manage to create the perfect balance between ladylike and rock-n-roll. Accessorizing with chain necklaces and sturdy heels completes the look.
If you do decide to go all-out with a full tweed suit like Caroline Sieber did below, I suggest keeping the hemline short to help keep the look flirty instead of matronly.
For those of you who want the Chanel look at a real-girl price, check out some of the great options I found online. Happy shopping!
