Good morning everyone, today’s post is a Chanel inspired outfit. The foundation of this ensemble is the faux pearl detailed cardigan. I was kindly gifted this cardigan by Mimi’s Edit and I knew straight away how I was gong to style it. So let me show you how you can achieve the Chanel inspired look without breaking the bank. There are so many variety of cardigans on the high street to get you hands on. Take a scroll down to see the few that I have chosen and let me know which ones you are loving.
So let’s begin with my edge to edge cardigan which takes its inspiration from the Chanel Vintage pearl button cardigan. Such a beautiful cardigan that has been finished in oversized pearls to give it that luxe feeling. It feels so soft and is for sure a classic piece in my closet that I can see myself wearing year after year!
Now when it came to styling the edge to edge cardigan I opted to team it up with my Reiss tailored shorts. These smarten up any outfit in my opinion and teamed here with the cardigan it just works so well together. The shorts come in an off white colour and are in a mid length Bermuda style. The key to achieving a Chanel inspired look is to keep the pieces clean and sharp. So opt for tailored shorts as this will make the outfit look polished and put together.
Next I chose to wear my black padded tee from Zara. The sleeveless tee is just perfect as the shoulder pads add to the overall outfit. Styled underneath the cardigan this just gives a sharp clean look and keeps to the monochromatic look. You could easily opt for a black or white bodysuit to wear underneath the cardigan. Personally I would choose a white blouse as an alternative as this will keep the outfit looking polished.
KNEE HIGH BOOTS
As for my shoes I decided to wear my black suede knee high boots from Kurt Geiger. Such a good pair of boots that tie in beautifully with my overall look. These are my most worn pair of boots as they are extremely comfortable and instantaneously make any of my outfits look put together. You would have seen me wearing them on repeat and can you blame me!
When it came to the accessories I opted for my black mini Jacquemus bag. This cutie of a bag adds a little oomph to my outfit and doesn’t take anything away from the cardigan. Finally completing my outfit I am wearing my black Azzedine Alaia sunglasses. This is in a classic style and goes perfectly with my look.
