Chanel-Inspired Outfits For Little Girls – Kids’ Chanel
There’s something so darling about seeing kids in grown-up outfits. Think little boys in suits and bowties or little girls in fancy dresses and hats for instance. So when I see little girl’s outfit that reminds me of something I’d die to wear, it takes all the willpower in me not to nab it for little Juliet especially when it looks like Coco Chanel could have designed it herself! Through the years, I have developed a special eye for spotting these Chanel-inspired outfits for my minifashionista and here, I will break down the 5 iconic Chanel elements to look out for to have your minifashionista lookin’ oh so chic!
Quilting is pretty much synonymous with the brand. The pictured outfits were bought through my Chinese wholesaler contacts and I love how they gave Juliet a classic, comfortable and elegant little look.
Tweed / boucle’
Look out for that nubby fabric, preferably paired with another Chanel element such as the camelia pin, or pearls as shown here. I’ve had success finding these sorts of looks everywhere from brands like Janie and Jack, to Mayoral, Zara and Little Sara.
Black and white
Black and white is a timelessly chic combo that I’ve always loved. It is classic to Chanel too. Inspired by the austere black and white surroundings where Coco grew up, she used this mix of colors so much that it became “her” look. It’s a sophisticated look for girls and with the right details (add any of the other components such as quilting or suiting for instance), and you’ve got a classic Coco look!
Coco Chanel was famous for translating menswear suiting details towards womenswear. Think contrast trim pocket details, 2 piece skirt suits, bow add-ons..check out these adorable examples above.
The interlocking CCs are recognizable worldwide and for kids, are found in unique, fashion-forward boutiques like Cool Kids Bklyn.
