4 Essentials for a Classic Wardrobe
Fashion lessons from Kate Hudson (yes, really!), Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld and DVF.
Never underestimate the power of a well-fitting jacket. From Jackie O to Coco herself, the Chanel jacket has been a symbol of the professional woman since its conception in 1945. It was arguably the first menswear-inspired design for women.
Fashion fades; only style remains the same.” – Coco Chanel
But a great jacket doesn’t have to come at Chanel prices. Even a trip to your local thrift store can yield a treasured outer layer that you will wear with everything from an evening gown to jeans and a white tee. Remember that when it comes to jackets, the fit is everything. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t find a perfect fit; a tailor can often shorten or narrow aspects of a jacket for less than $20. Just remember, it’s always much easier to make something smaller than it is bigger.
