Going topless or pantless… but not both at once

Coco Chanel once said, rather famously, “Before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Assumedly she was referring to accessories – to leaving behind, say, one strand of pearls or maybe going a little more minimal on the headwear.

When we look at the way women wear trousers now, it’s hard to imagine that before the 1920s women were restrained by corsets and long skirts. Coco Chanel was one of the first women who left her corset in her closet and wore trousers in public. After all, a woman like her cannot be restrained.
