Zara before Chanel

Much of Zara's Spring/Summer Women's collection is coated in Chanel inspired tweed suit pieces, with their take on the classic style, in this seasons trending pastel tones. 
Sophistication looms in every jacket, skirt and even dress, perfectly cut and tailored to that of Coco's standards. 
I cannot describe how badly I wanted to buy any one of these garments but sadly the price range was just too high, but that didn't stop me from touching, trying on, and admiring in ore. 
Zara has dealt a safe hand with this collection, this classic suit has never failed to impress with numerous comebacks on the Chanel catwalk, so why shouldn't the high street stores have a dabble in re-creating the style? 
Topshop and Primark have produced their own versions of some suit pieces, but Zara have gone all out. 
Below are a few favourites from the collection and some classic Chanel's from over the years.

I loved the yellow dress personally, when I tried it on, I didn't want to take it off! 
After seeing this collection and scrolling through the numerous past Chanel collections I hope to one day own a vintage Chanel tweed jacket. (21st birthday present? hint hint)
