Vintage Chanel

When I saw these vintage Chanel high-waisted, wide-leg trousers at Vintage Martini store, I said “yes” right away. These trousers were exactly what I was looking for and they fit perfect on me without doing any alteration. The length is fine right now, although I wish it was an inch longer.This kind of trouser is very comfortable and suits any occasion; at the office or going out. Depending on the cut, they can suit any shape. This is my opinion:

  • The best top to wear with your trousers is one that is fitted, with no added volume. It can flatter your shape by adding a belt to give you definition.
  • The trousers should be just long enough to graze the floor and let your toes peek out, otherwise you look footless. Also, they shouldn’t be so wide that you swim in them, especially if you’re petite like me.
  • Heels are a must to add length to the legs.

This Chloe mini bag also from Vintage Martini. You should check out the website. Ken is the boss, and you should ask him for a discount. Wearing with my old shirt from The Row.

I love this look. The black trousers and fitted white shirt are conservative. So, I unbutton my shirt a little bit deeper and wear layered necklaces to give sexiness without revealing too much. I styled it with Poenza boots to give a little toughness, the Givenchy belt is kind of edgy, and Alaia zebra clutch with vintage fox fur tail gave this look a funside.layers of vintage Monet neclace and Erickson Beamon necklace. Vintage fox fur tail from Dolly Python Vintage. Alaia clutch was on sale 75% off from last year.

Thank you everyone for your continuing support and your comments!

Wishing you all a happy Sunday and wonderful week ahead! Big hugs…Hanh ;-)

  1. the chanel pants are incredible, what a find! looks great w/ both tops. well done!
    and…"vintage monet" jewelry…wish i'd kept all mine, i had loads of monet in the 80s. <>

  2. Hanh, these trousers are fantastic. I love the way you styled them both ways! I think high waists can be so flattering and they make you look like you have a tiny waist and hide problem areas (waist or hips) for most people!

  3. love the mini bag with the top!!!! the green is soo bright with the whole outfit!!
    and the alaia clutch is beauuuutiful!

  4. The trousers are the perfect buy! Chanel always give generous hems so that all their tailoring can be altered up two sizes, I am sure a good tailor would easily lengthen them an inch. I will be wearing wide leg pants this autum, love them! x

  5. wow, love the looks. especially the last one!
    perfectly styled!
    but i think it would look better without plateaushoes, so the trousers would end near'er' to the floor!

  6. Hanh you always look amazing. The Proenza Shouler boots are to die for, so the vintage Chanel trousers!

  7. all the dresses are very good and i think the shorts as well as the pants and the shoes can be used with any combination of tops, pants and shoes, all these things are party wear as well as casuals, great choice

  8. Hi Lindsay,
    I had on layers of Clinique lipsgloss (couldn't read the name, but #08 long last glosswear),a little touch of Schiap-Nars, and finished with #08 Clinique lipsgloss.

    The ring from the first look was from F21, it's so long ago.
    xoxo
    hanh,

  9. I love all the jewelry in this post Lindsay. The layered gold necklaces are gorgeous! Where'd you get the ring? And is that small beaded bracelet by Persona?

    You're always an inspiration!
