Channelling my inner Chanel!

                Shirt- Helmut Lang, Shorts- Boutique shop in Cannes
                Pearls- Selection from various places
          Rings- Bought in Portugal, Bag- Dorothy Perkins
                       Shoes- New Look  

This post is dedicated to Coco Chanel. To me is she one of the all time fashion icons, and her influence in the industry can never be understated. Her style was elegant, Chic and timeless.

So, I knew that for this look I would have wear my stunning white Helmut Lang shirt, that I won in a Motilo and Glasswork styling competition. It is classic and simple, but the dip hem at the back just gives it a edge and takes it away from just being a normal shirt. I love it, the cut is perfect and it will be a wardrobe staple for years, I mean every girl needs a fab white shirt, right?
But the star piece of this look are the pearls. Pearls are not a fashion statement, they are not a trend, they just never go out of style. When I was putting this outfit together I just kept layering them up and adding more and I love the overall look. Chanel will always be associated with Pearls, and I really wanted   them to be the focus, and more is always better for me! 
I normally style my outfits in quite a methodical manner, so it was really fun to put something together with another designer/fashion house in mind. I would definitely give it a go if you feel like spicing up your looks. 

And to quote the Lady herself..
"A girl should always be two things: classy and fabulous"
Coco Chanel

I hope you like my look, and I would love to know who are your fashion icons too. 

I hope your weeks are going ok? I am really looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend, as I don't have loads of plans, so it will be nice and relaxing. 
I will also be writing my Purple trend post, very excited to be wearing one of my fav colours this winter!

Happy Wednesday!
