“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”
― Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel was the epitome of class, style and human-ness. She created the iconic “little black dress” and although used color she didn’t deviate from her black and added white signature style.
She was cool and confident and never considered herself better than others but said, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” She achieved that goal. She gave women a sense of woman-ness and strength.
I love this look. Hems may rise and fall and shirts may be garnished with all manner of frills but Coco Chanel created a style that has influenced designers through the decades and will continue as long as there are women to wear them.
