Classic style is timeless. Trends will come and go, but very few pieces have stood the test of time. One such piece though is the Chanel style tweed jacket. The style first made its debut back in the 20s and has been recreated countless times over the years.
Immortalised by Jackie Kennedy, tweed was long thought of as a masculine fabric, but it was the work of Chanel that made this hardwearing material a feminine masterpiece by the clever use of cut, pastel colours and pearl embellishments.
The occurrence of such a piece is sadly few and far between in plus size fashion. That’s why we’re so excited to bring you Jasmin. The Kasbah Clothing take on this iconic garment.
In today’s post we’re going to talk you through the different ways you can style this versatile jacket.
Classic Work Look
Ready yourself for a day of meetings in this classic work look. Nothing says ‘has her stuff together’ like a crisp white shirt and classic jacket. You’ll boss the day in this gorgeous combo. Heather wears Jasmin with our essential white tunic – Tianne.
Tianne is a fantastic alternative to a classic button down shirt – great news for the more fuller chested of you out there. Say goodbye to gaping blouses! Adding the jacket and wearing it open creates a really beautiful line.
Casual Jean Look
There’s absolutely no reason to save this plus size Chanel look jacket for best. Get the most of your gorgeous garment by creating a casual look. Becky has gone down the tonal route by mixing beautiful blues. She has added pops of silver through her shoes and jewellery.
Adding a clashing print in the form of a scarf, but staying with some tonal shades really adds to this look.
Back to Black
There’s a lot to be said for a black base. It’s perfect for capsule dressing and means you can add your own personal style to any outfit. Practical and versatile, go wild with accessories!
Add a bit of Glam
If the occasion calls for it, why not add heels and some fabulous jewellery. Becky has added a high neck white top for a bit of drama and fabulous killer heels.
Layered necklaces really lift this outfit and give it dimension.
Styling the Jasmin plus size Chanel style jacket isn’t really all that hard though. With such a beautiful style you’ll find a million ways to wear this knock out style.
