“Chanel is composed of only a few elements, white camellias, quilted bags and

Austrian doorman’s jackets, pearls, chains, shoes with black toes. I use these

elements like notes to play with.”

Karl Lagerfeld
As the brand Chanel is composed out of a few distinct elements that are representative and timeless,
so should any girl’s wardrobe contain certain pieces that are adjusted to her needs, yet still classic.
Authenticity should never be disregarded, that is certain. Nevertheless there are several wardrobe
classics that I see as essential.
The classic black blazer we have already covered, the black pants will feature shortly, as will the
white shirt and the eternal little black dress. Indeed, putting all of these elements together in one and
the same outfit will most probably double your actual age. Yet a balanced combination between such
pieces and more modern, maybe featured in the season’s trends, or, dare I say, avant-garde items will
most probably result in an interesting and unique outfit.
Although not everyone might agree, my classic must-haves list contains both sets of pearls and a
maxi  skirt. Not meant to be worn together, of course, these two are items that I come back to
again and again.
Maxi dresses and skirts have been “in” for a few seasons now, but regardless, I do still think that
these should be found in any wardrobe and in any season. Whether you’re a fan of the maxi look
for casual day or evening, these Very maxi dresses could make an impact. Personally,
I can’t stop thinking about the beautiful blue green of this pleated maxi one,
and the amazing tropical colours that this Love Label maxi has.
If bold colours are not your thing just go for a long black lace one and pair it with a short leather
jacket or, as I did, with a boyfriend blazer for that 30s Hollywood glamour. Regardless I think my
point about the necessity of a maxi dress/skirt has been made 🙂
And pearls . . oh don’t even get me started! Just think pretty ballet flats, skinny jeans, a white cotton
tank, a Chanel-esque jacket and the Pont Des Arts in Paris. Just add pearls in your hair
and you have perfection.
