A homage to the Chanel inspired jacket

When I think about fashion one of the first fashion houses that always comes to the forefront of my mind immediately is of course the monarch that is Chanel. This house possesses one of the most stunningly beautiful archives of handbags and jackets. The Chanel jacket has always been a piece that I have admired and let me tell you that I have been on the hunt for a long time trying to find a jacket inspired by this irreplaceable design.
The jacket that I am wearing here is from Zara which is a great brand for finding clothes inspired by current luxury fashion house creations. I am always on the lookout for perfect dupes of the Chanel jacket so I have some recommendations linked down below for you until I can afford the real one! This sort of lightweight jacket is perfect for the Spring/Summer season that we are currently enjoying when the cool summer breeze starts rustling the trees and grabbing a hold of the hair that was previously styled.

                                  My favourite way to style this jacket is with a pair of blue jeans and a pair of flats such as Toms or gladiator sandals. This is an outfit that I will no doubt be living in for the summer, using every chance I get to wear this beautiful piece of handcrafted tweed. The tweed is so attention drawing that I tend to tone down the rest of the look so that it can really shine and be the focal point of the entire outfit as it should be which is why I am only wearing a simple white tank top underneath.
