Actionable Fashion: 3 Ways to Bring Coco Chanel’s Runway Elegance to Your Closet

by Danisha Williams

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”
-Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel is a brand that’ll never go out of style. It exudes elegance and class, and can spruce up any outfit through a jewelry piece, handbag, or even one of the signature fragrances. For today’s runway inspired look, I turned runway elegance into everyday glam wear. Why can’t the average girl be fashionable and functional all at the same time?

If you didn’t know, I am not one to follow the laws of fashion. I pretty much threw the “don’t wear white after labor day” rule out of the window. Personally, I think wearing all white during the winter season is so classy and chic; it livens up the dreary winter weather. Just make sure to bundle up if you live in a windy city.

This Coco Chanel jacket is so intriguing (especially in pink!). What really caught my eye is the plaid interior. From a distance the pink leather can come off as looking cheap, but the plaid paired with the white shift dress detours the cheap look. The plaid adds liveliness and fun to the outfit.

You know I always save the best for last. Red is a powerful color to wear. Although I am not a fan of red, I might have to put my opinion aside and try this outfit out. It is 100% daring and out there. The pearls help give off that feminine look and the white shoes create a crisp look that pulls the outfit together.
