Not only did she liberate women from dresses and skirts by designing ladies pants (once only allowed to be worn by men); her iconic string of pearls became a historic image of timeless styling to the point that even fake pearls were socially acceptable.

Without Coco, we may not have discovered the potential of the little black dress, the soft jacket, the ‘it’ bag, the scent of jasmine in a bottle, and even the sun tan – which became an instant fashion trend after Chanel and the sun collaborated while she was on holidays.

 

 

 

 

Her style is flawless elegance and continues to inspire women to believe that they can wear clothes according to their own personal preference and style which was perhaps the greatest fashion influence she left for us all.
