I am back today with another 'Designer Looks On The High Street' post, and this time I am finding more affordable items that mimic those of the Chloe AW17 ready to wear.
Chloe is probably my favourite designer, along with Chanel and they have been such a major influence on the high street this season which I am happy to see. Of course Chloe bags have stolen the limelight for the past few seasons, and I too adore them! However Chloe for fall/winter had the whole package.
Chloe is always particularly feminine and bohemian. They always showcase the most beautiful palettes; lots of neutral tones, fresh whites and creams and then a host of muted shades. Chloe AW17 was no exception, with stunning muted green tones being key along with mustard hues.
I particularly fell in love with the whole 60's and 70's turn that Chloe took for the season with the pussy bow blouses in pretty, psychedelic prints and feminine pinafore dresses in earthy tones. As soon as I saw these looks on the catwalk I knew I would want to adopt them into my own wardrobe which is exactly what I have done in today's post.
The high street are offering so many Chloe inspired garments, and for me Mango has been my ultimate shopping destination to pick up these pieces along with Zara. I wanted to recreate the 70's style outfits I had seen on the Chloe show, but also keep in mind my own personal style.
Therefore I have on this amazing faux-leather pinafore dress in a gorgeous dark brown colour. This piece gives a really feminine feel with the ruffle hem and flattering silhouette but it also has that smart tailored feel due to the structured torso. I love all things feminine tailoring so this piece was such a good find!
For Chloe they teamed pinafore dresses with pussy bow blouses that were in bold 70s prints and with slight balloon sleeves. Although I absolutely adore the prints, I couldn’t quite find anything to match on the high street and I wanted something I knew I would wear day-to-day with ease. Consequently I opted for this plain white pussy bow blouse which did feature the balloon sleeves and it teams perfectly for a more wearable look.
I will be reviewing the items in more detail in my next Youtube video guys along with other Chloe inspired items I have picked up recently! So for Chloe fall/winter they featured lots of Mary-Jane style footwear to give the outfits that almost Alice in Wonderland feel; and again although I adored these I wanted something more me in the outfit. To be honest I couldn’t find a good enough dupe on the high street either, so I opted for my khaki sating ankle boots which fit in with the Chloe palette and are also a firm favourite shoe of mine.
I then finished with a round suede bag in tan which is reminiscent of the Chloe Pixie bags for AW17 and my Chloe Carlina dupe sunglasses. I have found much better dupes for the Pixie bag which I will discuss in the video too and I will be having a few coming soon. I have linked a very good dupe on my ‘Shop Designer Dupes’ page if you are interested.
I am thrilled to be able to pull off these Chloe outfits at an affordable price and cannot wait to wear them throughout autumn winter. Stay tuned for a new Chloe outfit coming up on the blog next!
