Plus, when you think of a bouclé jacket you can’t help but think of Chanel and when has that ever been a bad thing? While the iconic, timeless piece is a huge part of Chanel’s history, luckily the high-street has some amazing offerings which won’t break the bank. It’s a key piece of your wardrobe, you just have to own it, it’s powerful, girly, elegant, adorable with jeans and ballerinas and it’s also an important item for this spring, as we know we are talking about a transitional season, not too warm and not too cold. It is a timeless classic and I believe you will love it.
It all started in 1954 when Coco Chanel created the first boucle, tweed jacket destined to become an iconic piece for the brand leading up to today. It is still reinvented and redesigned every season by Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and many other designers who are inspired by this look. And it is still worn all over the world by different women on daily basis without it looking out dated. I think most women who are lucky enough to own an original Chanel bouclé jacket know better than to get rid of it. It is a classic and iconic piece that will never go out of style and women can wear it in many different ways to reinvent the look every season.
I know it’s not so easy to own an original Chanel jacket, obviously the price is high, but today we have many other brands that offer us some very good models and also the quality is ok. Ok, you will not have the double C on the pocket, but you can still add a nice brooch to let the magic happen.This jacket can easily be much more dressy and serious if you wear it with a black skirt/pants or a black dress for example. And there is nothing wrong with that look, but I kind of like mixing it with a casual piece like the distressed jeans to give it a funkier vibe. Adding on the killer pointy pumps, a great clutch bag and some fabulous jewelry makes the outfit dressy enough for a party with a cool causal vibe.
We know April is mad enough to offer sun, rain, cold and somewhere even snow, then hot and beach days as well. So beside the jeans jacket and the evergreen trench, try also a bouclé jacket, because we will never be wrong.
