Kathy’s Corner: Lessons From Coco Chanel

Kathy’s Corner: Lessons from Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel came from extreme poverty, an orphan, yet clawed her way to the top of her industry. She was born in 1883.

Here are some of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes that still ring true today!

  • Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.
  • The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good, on you!
  • How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.
  • The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.
  • Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
  • Before you leave the house, take off one accessory.
  • Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.
  • Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.
  • Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
  • A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
  • Fashion fades, only style remains the same.
  • In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.
  • Luxury must be comfortable otherwise, it is not luxury.
  • My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.
  • 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.
  • One can get used to ugliness, but never to negligence.
  • Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.
  • Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.
  • Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
  • I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little — if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.
  • There are people who have money and people who are rich.
  • If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent their growing.
  • There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time.
