Inspiration from Coco Chanel

She made the Little Black Dress and clusters of pearls wardrobe classics, but Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel also knew the value of a perfect T-shirt. Take a cue from Coco and put this classic style on heavy rotation.

Here, Audrey Tautou sports a breezy striped boat neck tee while playing the part of a young Coco Chanel as seen in the film Coco Avant Chanel. Coco Chanel famously wore a similar t-shirt in the 1930's, making the style forever chic. Here is some fabulous ideas and items I loved for the ever popular nautical look. Check them out, there are some items for your whole family and a little inspiration for the home.
