Do Chanel chic in monochrome (with hosiery a must-have!)

With the new biopic about Coco Chanel about to hit the cinemas, we’re getting quite excited about the prospect of all the monochrome fashions hitting the high streets.

According to our sources at Female First, some stores have already jumped on the trend for tweed, tailoring and Parisian chic, with M&S and Miss Selfridge both sticking some tres chic dresses and jackets.
