Chanel tweed jackets may be on top of mind for many when we think of a classy outfit. They are classic, versatile and you put one on, instantly you look elegant. I call it instant fashion because it doesn’t require much effort and it’s a safe card to use when you’re not sure how to style yourself to look classy.
But the original Chanel jacket can be expensive to buy from the Chanel store. It tends to start from £2000 and cost around £4000. Buying vintage or pre-owned is very common, and you have a wide selection, as this type of jacket never really “ages” or goes out of fashion.
The more common solution for this classy trend is to get a “Chanel style” jacket. It’s very common to see affordable brands and shops use the exact Chanel tweed or a lookalike and make jackets for a fraction of the cost. You can find plenty of stores on Instagram that sell these jackets! Or have a browse on the high street, and I’m sure you’ll come across Zara who has made something similar for spring/summer season!
Regardless of which option you decide for, buying one will make you look more ladylike and save you on many occasions when you want to feel classy.
Me personally, I like to wear my jacket either as a set (with a matching skirt/dress) or casually with a pair of jeans. I love the contrasts when you combine something very classy with something more casual (jeans). Just works really well and you won’t feel overdressed!
