Chanel Haute Couture Accessories AW2012: Get the look
Let's face it, the weather isn't treating us well at the moment is it? It's safe to say your unnecessary splurge of a Lulu Guiness umbrella has really been put through its paces these last couple weeks. But amongst the slippery soles and curly locks the British 'summertime' has subjected us to, there is a silver lining to these dark clouds. Yesterday, Karl Lagerfeld opened up the world of couture in true style with this year's Chanel couture show and for just a moment the intricate embellishments and charming salmon tweed took our minds away from the dreariness outside. Now, it may not be Autumn /Winter just yet, but it certainly feels like it, so why not embrace it in the most fashionable way possible? We've trawled the online high street for the best accessory look a likes akin to those walking along the Grand Palais catwalk.
From toe capped heels to string berets, tweed clutches to buckle belts, now you can follow in the style icon footsteps of Chanel's front row. Step over Alexa Chung and Diane Kruger because we've got oversized bow ties to flaunt!
