The Chanel Jacket - Picking a Silhouette

In making my own version of the classic Chanel Jacket, I've deliberated over what kind of shape it would take.  Would it be the classic collarless style that was introduced by Coco Chanel in the 1950's?  or more of a fitted blazer with a notched collar.  For me, it needs to be versatile but a little funky too.  Which Silhouette would you choose?
Classic notched collar blazer with small bias fringe detail

Long one button blazer with contrasting braid

Less fitted blazer with wide bias trim at collar, pockets, front and cuffs

slouchy two pocket version

very fitted with exaggerated peplum

cropped sleeve bolero style

cropped sleeve and cropped length
