Few things are as versatile as the Coco Chanel inspired Bouclé Tweed jacket. In winter, you can wear the jacket under your coat, in summer, just wear it alone over skirts, denim or shorts. I own two boxy jackets: One black and white one with cream ruffled contrast piping and a modern take on the classic in blue and white with chain metal contrast piping from Max & Co SS 2013.
Above: This must be my favourite combination of the Chanel inspired jacket: Casually with jeans. The jacket gives the distressed denim just the right amount of effortless chic. Boxy cardigan from Max & Co, Jeans from Stefanel, lace-up shoes from Attilio Giusti Leombruni.
The Preppy Look: This is a very feminine combination: The puffy baloon skirt in satin from Max & Co and the cardigan, which is made of light cotton yarn, make an easy, pretty spring look.
Effortless, chic and very French: Boucle jacket and vichy gingham checked shorts, straw bag from Miu Miu and Pretty Ballerinas ballet pumps.
The all round jacket works with dresses too: I’m wearing a stripey navy dress from Massimo Dutti and nude Pretty Ballerinas ballet pumps.
