Style Inspiration: Coco Chanel & Pearls
I've always been a huge fan of Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel and her simple chic-ness. Although noted for her simple black dress and white camellia flower, my favorite thing about her look was her signature pearls. Pearls show elegance, class, and daintiness. In today's fashion pearls are often over looked as something one's grandmother would wear. But I love pearls. They help to add a bit of class and polish to any outfit. Coco Chanel is the poster woman for "less is more." Her minimalist style has remained current throughout the ages in the midst of other less successful trends falling in it's wake. She was effortlessly classy.
