I am delighted to collaborate with online fashion mecca Boohoo for this style post – to recreate one of my favourite iconic movie looks from their evening dresses selection. After browsing through Boohoo’s extensive range, I spotted this monochrome lace dress and it immediately reminded me of one of my favourite films Coco Before Chanel – the life story of legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel.

The movie documents Chanel’s rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world, a must watch for fashion lovers and aspiring designers. A true visionary of her time Coco Chanel has shaped the face of fashion.

When I think of Chanel the classic colour combination of black and white immediately springs to mind, signifying the epitome of refined elegance, sophistication, and style. I think everyone can attest to wearing black and white at some point and for most this classic colour combination is a wardrobe stable.

Known for her sartorial wise words according to Coco Chanel, the six qualities of an ideal wardrobe are,

Black and White

Good Shoes

Plenty of Dresses



Well-Fitting Clothes

I certainly have plenty of dresses in my wardrobe, however, I do hope to work on the other key points. The older I get the more I realise investing in quality items that stand the test of time are paramount to creating an ideal capsule wardrobe.

Although Boohoo is known for affordable and attainable on trend clothes I chose this dress as I know it will stand the test of time due to its classic lace design and contrasting black trim. The simplicity of monochrome makes this look effortlessly chic and a wardrobe staple for years to come.

I would love to know what your iconic movie style is?

    As usual Demelza, absolutely stunning photographs. I have really found over time I have managed to hone in my wardrobe and purchases, much of which aligns with your six principles. Great content!
