Style Inspiration: Chanel Resort 2014

Earlier this year, Chanel held their 2014 resort collection in Singapore. It is not the latest, of course, but I am loving the incredible new textures and silhouettes. Let's look at how to work these new ideas for ourselves.

Try rocking this pointed toe pump if you are tired of sticking to a rounder shape. Shoes really can make an outfit and this shape is much classier, more professional and more flattering than an over-the-top platform peep-toe. Gah. Ensure that the point balances nicely with the heel and you can't go wrong. Pointed toes with a kitten heel or flat sole don't always work so well, in my opinion. But that's just me - I'd love to be proven wrong!

Another thing that strikes me about this outfit (perhaps slightly more obvious than the shoes) is the multi, multi, multi strand necklace. This look could easily be recreated with some strands from an inexpensive vintage store or charity shop. And if you're lucky enough to have inherited some pearls from your grandmother, well what are you waiting for? Wear those pearls - and never let them wear you.

Long strands could also be refashioned into a belt, perfect for complementing a simple dress. I feel this style of gown would make a beautiful wedding dress too. Sigh.
