Audrey Hepburn. Jacqueline Kennedy. Coco Chanel.
These women are my inspiration — not only because they exude elegance in whatever they do, but also in what they wear. From tweed blazers to cigarette pants with oversized black sunglasses, they are known to make timeless pieces that can work both day and night.
Some classic pieces every Fashionista/o should own are a button-up shirt in a neutral color like this, as well as a knitted cardigan like this, both from J.Crew. It fuses the styles of Jackie O’s crisp top with Coco Chanel’s famous tweed creations.
Since the top is classic, keep the bottom of the outfit modern and edgy. Pull on a pair of gray destroyed jeans like these. They are a staple from Jackie Kennedy’s closet (since they're white bottoms) but with a twist (since they're frayed). If you really want to be cutting-edge, also wear these leopard flats with gold studs.
Also, don’t just stop with your outfit! Accessory is key. Even though Mademoiselle Chanel had a rule to take one accessory off before leaving the house, I believe that there are some rules that are meant to be broken. Wear multiple bracelets and cuffs along with a boyfriend watch as well as ring.
Keep your choices of handbags narrow to the ultimate classics: like this Louis Vuitton tote. Not only are you ensured the bag will last through time, but you are also sure that it will go with all of your outfits.
Have fun mixing these timeless pieces and make a classic chic ensemble!
