How did Chanel change fashion?

1 Answer
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel became a trailblazer in the fashion world by offering women styling options that moved away from corsets and lace and more toward a practical approach to fashion. Her original styles included wide-leg pants and sailor shirts which enhanced the freedom of the body, an important aspect in her vision of fluid and androgenous clothing.
