In honor of Coco Chanel’s birthday (August 19), today’s wise words are a collection of quotes from a phenomenal woman who definitely made her mark on the world. From fashion to empowerment and inspiration to pure swag, here are 10 of my favorite sayings from Coco Chanel.
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.”
“The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.”
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”
“Dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy today.”
“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”
“You live but once, you might as well be amusing.”
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
“Keep your heels, head and standards high.”
