Drop Everything and Look at the Street Style Outside of Chanel
10.04.17

When it comes to fashion week dressing, the outside of Chanel is like the Olympics of street style. It is the ultimate stage upon which athletes of the industry pull out all the stops and finally perform the triple axle backflips of outfits they’ve been warming up for all fashion month.

Pre-and-post show this Spring 2018 season, pink ruffled dresses and puffy sleeves reminiscent of cotton candy floated alongside acid-wash jeans, shiny patent leather, simple white t-shirts and oversized trenches. Tweed jackets and black toe-capped glitter boots were common threads amidst all the mouth-watering variety. At a Chanel-hosted Olympics, everyone is playing for the same team.

There was a larger bow that tied the picture together, though: an overwhelming evidence of delight in the process of putting together a combination of clothes and accessories that, together, do the absolute most.

Tell me your favorite outfits in the comments down below. I’m handing out gold medals left and right.

    #33 and #56 are my favorite. Feeling really good about my Zara black tweed jacket purchase right about now.

    • eizhowa

      The 33 is probably the only outfit I would actually wear in real life. It was so chic, but not as loud as a lot of the other outfits.

  • diane

    17, 22, 33, 36, 69 and 87. But mostly thanks for making me no longer crave those $10,000 sequin knee-high boots now that I have seen them on so many other people!

    Normally love your articles Harling but this is way off the mark . They look great because 80% of people in this slideshow wore Chanel Chanel Chanel . I know that you are supposed to pay homage but some of these are top to toe . A bit eh really .

  • PFW street style or how many Chanel pieces i own, and how to wear the all at once

  • Modupe Oloruntoba

    17, 25, and 27 are so refreshing; Chanel is usually just a black and white ‘double c’ love fest.

  • Hi I’m Viv

    Did you really go to the Chanel show if you aren’t wearing Chanel Sparkle Boots??

  • Jennifer

    Ehh. Too much tweed, cap toe shoes, and quilted leather. Everyone is wearing the same things! How boring and basic. I think its great to pay homage to Chanel while attending the show, but geez, way to wear a uniform, you rich, fancy people. There were a couple peeps in there who did Chanel the right way though.

  • Leslie Hitchcock

    I’m so pissed I didn’t get that JW Anderson trench.

  • Hannah Betts

    I love Chanel, and I love a trad Chanel look, yet I’m not sure I love the full Gucc aspect of some of these head-to-toes looks. It feels a tad literal.

  • Too much Chanel, not enough imagination.

  • Gabriela Cavalheiro
