For Fall 2016 Couture, in keeping with the signature aesthetic of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld completed his looks with accessories that added an aristocratic, demure, and insanely cool vibe to the show. How can you translate this into your own personal style? Read on to learn a thing or two – or three – from the kind of accessories himself about elevating any look to new fashion heights.

Put a Bow on It

A black satin headband with a bow is the perfect mix of cute and aristocratic. Add a great piece to your look à la Chanel, and your ensemble will instantly look more high fashion.

Glove Up

A pair of long black gloves has been a synonym of elegance for centuries, while the more rebellious, fingerless variety – often associated with Lagerfeld himself – just screams cool. Staying true to his tongue-in-cheek approach to fashion, the maestro merged the two styles to create a perfect finishing touch for haute couture. Gloves and scissors at the ready!

Always Buy Boots

Thigh-high boots just got the haute-couture stamp of approval from Monsieur Lagerfeld himself. Knee-length dresses like the ones below will make them disappear under your clothes, giving the coveted illusion of legs for days.
