The Chanel Look-A-Like Jacket

Chanel look-a-like jackets are getting some major play time at the moment, especially if you head to River Island. This navy stripe boucle double-breasted jacket is our favourite. It's even got pearls (in the form of buttons) which are featuring on many clothing pieces at the moment. I mean, you can't say Chanel without thinking of pearls and you can't say pearls without thinking of Chanel. 

Although the high street version, you can really pull off the Chanel look with this jacket. A staple in your wardrobe this season, just as it has been a staple in the Chanel house since 1954, this jacket has been re-introduced many times and has taken on many minor tweaks, with collar, without collar, single breasted, double breasted but it has always remained tweed with frayed edges. River Island have a few Chanel look-a-like jackets in their collection this season from black, cream/navy stripe (above), red, pink,white, with glitter detail, pearl buttons, gold tone buttons. 

How to wear it?! The most flattering way to wear this jacket right now is with a pair of cropped or turned up jeans and a pair of trainers. A look that takes a very chic and Parisian statement piece and pairs it with an understated garment so that you look both smart and casual at the same time. That's not to say that a pair of heels won't work. Add a heel and you take 'sexy' up a notch. And heading into wedding season, these jackets will look fabulous over your summer wedding outfit. This one, pictured above, comes with a very sexy skort, which looks amazing with either trainers or wedges. Perfect summer outfit!

If you can afford the real thing, then drop into Chanel and pick yourself up one. Otherwise, come with us to River Island and purchase a very convincing look-a-like for £70.
