Runway Styling Inspiration to Get the Chanel Haute Couture Look

Spring styling tips to extend your wardrobe with this hot off the runway vibe

There are a few things that I’m pretty sure of in this life.

And one is that I probably won’t be having the fortune of wearing Chanel Haute Couture anytime soon. Neither as part of the elite few who can afford the luxury or as a celebrity who gets to borrow a couture piece for a red carpet event.

But I can help YOU get the look by way of its styling.

Let’s go full circle and bring the Chanel Haute Couture styling into your spring wardrobe, and you may even already own some of the pieces!

>>SHOP: Cute Flats

What you’ll need:

  • Skinny pants- I love the split side of the Chanel pants… think of how many others ways they can work in your wardrobe.
  • Black pointy flats- the pointy toe and straight vamp of these flats adds a more modern edge than classic ballerina flats.

Style the look with pieces like these:
