Copycat Fashion: Jackie & Chanel
Subtly elegant, glamorous, poised, lady-like, etc., etc., the list goes on! These are just a few of the many adjectives worthy of describing the essence of both Coco Chanel and Jackie O's fashion evolution.
Their looks displayed a flawless perception of elegant womanly fashions, all laced heavily with both class and dignity.
Their looks emulated feminine glamour in an effortless, non-overdone manner. Pearls to adorn their necks played for the perfect touch of elegance, and figure flattering dresses, all in pastels or neutral colors.
The LBD was also a fond favorite of the two, especially when paired with strands of glossy white pearls!
So, after taking into careful consideration the two's recipe of pearls, neutral colors, simple and flattering cut dresses, as well as Jackie's trademark big sunglasses... I have come up with a list of items reminiscent to the two fashion icon's very own looks! So, get ready to channel your inner Jackie and Chanel, darlings! ;)
