“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” -Coco Chanel
“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” -Coco Chanel
Today’s outfit is 100% inspired by the first lady of style, Coco Chanel. Though I sadly, do not own a single Chanel piece I have often taken my cues from Chanel.
I grew up watching Fashion Television, which had a huge impact on me. I love the art that comes with design and styling. I think growing up and constantly looking at high fashion has trickled down into how I now dress, even on my low budget fashion level.
This look is simple, but I adhered to Coco’s famous advice and took off an item before shooting today’s look. I also find much comfort in black & white outfits. I think they can speak so loudly, even with the absence of a bright colour.
