“Coco” Chanel once said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” When you think of females that exude such traits, only one organization comes to mind and that would be Washington, D.C. based organization TheGirlfriendGroup (TGG). TheGirlfriendGroup was founded by Vanessa Maddox in 2009, as a global online community for women. “Our mission is ‘Women helping women in all aspects of life.’ We are a diverse, highly dynamic group of women that aspire to Network.Share.Encourage.”
On Saturday, July 24, 2010, Vanessa Maddox and TheGirlfriendGroup premiered their 2nd Annual Chanel Girlfriend Party at Tysons Galleria’s Saks Fifth Avenue in McLean, Virginia. Led by the direction of Chanel Retail Manager Lizette Settepani, the event offered an insider’s look into Chanel’s history, lifestyle, and Fall 2010 trends for both fashion and beauty.
So what can “Chanel Lovers” and Fashionistas in the D.C. Metropolitan area anticipate for this upcoming Fall 2010 season?
According to Chanel representatives neutrals will play a huge role for color schemes this fall. The use of contrasting colors (ie: black and white) with both make-up and clothing is key to offering a bold statement this season. Camel colors accessorized with a splash of red or animal prints will be essential to looking trendy. Additionally, maroon, glacier blue and grays mixed with cream will be colors ever D.C. woman should aim to mix and match in her wardrobe.
Chanel’s Ready-to-Wear Fall 2010 collection features tweed on tweed. Layering will be the focus this season, so pairing tweeds with the new Chanel “envelop” jacket is a must. For that extra stylish look, dressing in skinny jeans with thigh high boots will take your look to the next level.
Chanel is also featuring a gorgeous iridescent cardigan and shift dress with Lesage crest detail for fall. For you fierce fashionistas, you all will be happy to know that motorcycle jackets return this year and should be paired with mini-skits. If you are looking for that extra chic accessory, chain suspenders will do the trick.
For Chanel fans that desire a sporty look, the company has produced denim-inspired knits, jackets, and dresses. The ‘Coco Cocoon’ jackets come in five colors which match perfectly with Chanel nylon handbags. For a unique look Chanel representatives recommend pairing different color handbags with jackets.
Finally, for that “Capitol Hill” Happy Hour or evening engagement, ladies can mix and match a variety of day-to-evening options. This season Chanel has designed a chic fitted stretch jacket to be paired with a mini skirt. Lastly, look for the must-have satin zip front dresses to be worn with skinny paillette tuxedo pants.-This will add that extra mark of elegance.
Chanel Fashion Tip: Look for pieces that are accented with velvet or faux fur.
