Style secrets of the legendary Coco Chanel that are still relevant today
The French fashion designer and founder of the Chanel fashion house Coco Chanel died exactly 53 years ago on January 10, and the revolutionary changes she introduced in her time are influencing the fashion of today and will be relevant for a very long time. Some inventions of the style icon of the last century not only remain relevant but can be safely called classics that exist beyond time.
Many designers are inspired by her clothes because the ideas of most black sheath dresses, shoulder bags and women's suits are inherited from the unsurpassed Coco Chanel. OBOZ.UA decided to remind you what achievements of the Frenchwoman the world still uses.
Pants and a "little black dress"
At the time when the world-famous fashion designer's career was developing, women were quite conservative and restrained in their attitudes towards clothing. Coco Chanel changed the game by popularizing trouser pants among beauties and creating the legendary "little black dress."
Nowadays, every woman knows that a black cocktail dress is always a good option. By choosing the right style and taking into account the features of the figure and the dress code, you can create an unforgettable look that will decorate any woman.
It's been almost a century since women started wearing small quilted bags with a laconic chain that they threw over their shoulders, but this model is still considered a basic one. The original Chanel bag is the brand's calling card, and it is massively faked.
It is said that the legendary Chanel No. 5 perfume is literally the spirit of Coco Chanel that she left to the world when she passed away. Fashionistas feel close to the legendary figure, using the scent that she once liked. It is believed that "Chanel No. 5" is suitable for successful, self-confident and purposeful ladies, like Coco herself.
Before the designer broke into the fashion industry, ladies preferred discreet accessories or even did without them altogether. However, Coco Chanel believed that a complete look would not be possible without appropriate jewelry. Back then, she showed how to wear long pearl necklaces, and today every stylist teaches that any outfit can become even better if you add the right accessories.
