Chanel Trends to Embrace:
- Mixing Textures: Chanel has always been known for its use of textures in outfits. This trend can be translated into your own style by mixing materials like tweed, leather, and silk to create visually interesting outfits.
- Logo Love: Chanel’s logo is iconic, and it’s making a comeback. Embrace the trend with logo-emblazoned accessories like belts, hats, and even t-shirts.
- Oversized Accessories: Chanel has been promoting larger accessories, from statement earrings to chunky chain belts. Incorporate oversized jewelry into your wardrobe to add a bold touch to any outfit.
- Knee-High Boots: Chanel has been showcasing knee-high boots in recent collections. They’re not just for winter; you can wear them year-round with skirts, dresses, and even shorts.
- Feminine Suiting: Tailored suits have become a Chanel staple. Look for well-fitted suits in soft colors and combine them with classic blouses or even a camellia brooch to add a Chanel-esque touch.

All neutrals obsessed! A monochrome look is so pretty for Fall and I love mixing in different textures. This Amazon cardigan has been one of my most favorite finds.
