Coco Chanel, reinvented fashion and inspired women to find their signature style. She was more than a designer, she educated women to be classy and express their style. Having an individual style sets one another apart. Regardless of age and fashion tendencies, one’s style is unique.
Style can be created or inspired, it also has to do with how you carry yourself. While being fashionable and trendy, it is important to remember to stay classy. Here are some timeless tips inspired by Coco Chanel that all women should know:
“Elegance does not consist of always wearing a new dress”
When having different events to attend, the custom is to purchase a new dress for each. If you know how to accessorize a dress or an outfit, you do not need to own a different one for each event. It all depends on your inspiration and creativity to play up that dress.
“Fashion fades while style remains the same”
Regardless of what is currently fashionable, it is important to find your individual style, whatever looks natural on and advantages you. If pointy-toed shoes are in style but they disadvantage you, then you will not look fashionable wearing them. Stick to what characterizes you best.
