Coco Chanel once famously said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Now, who could argue with an icon like her? I definitely feel that every girl should have an ensemble that feels like a perfect marriage between class and fab. Yes, I would love to have a Chanel trousseau in my wardrobe but times are tough. And tough times call for smart measures.
To emulate the Chanel mantra, I’ve combined a black lace pussy-bow blouse with a dip hem skirt to re-create my own classy and fab look right from the British high-street.
There is something so subtly romantic about the pussy-bow blouse, it is timeless yet feminine whilst a dip-hem skirt lends an ethereal charm yet is modern and trendy. A waist-cincher is a must-have to accentuate those curves.
