As we jump into fall and become reacquainted with outerwear, tweed makes it’s way back into the stores and hopefully into your closet. It’s a classic that’s often overlooked for the latest trends, like bombers or military jackets. Personally I’m a believer in anything that stands the test of time in the ever changing fashion industry! You know a style can be considered a classic when millions of people continue to wear, and purchase, it year after year. Everyone’s personal style preferences and lifestyle needs are different, yet somehow this piece adapts. Have some fun putting your own spin on the classic tweed jacket! I don’t have the need for a ‘business professional’ wardrobe, but I love styling mine with shorts and navy coated denim. Pairing it with pieces you might not typically think of, adds just enough edge while staying relevant to my style.
For many of us, denim jackets, leather jackets, and knit blazers are wardrobe staples, but why not add a bold tweed? All of the above typically come in solid colors. More often than not, tweed incorporates multiple colors into one jacket, which basically pulls your outfit together for you! Hello, yes please! This is especially useful for anyone who is always running late (me!). To achieve a polished look in under 2 minutes, throw it on over your favorite white tee or silk cami and let the jacket do the work! If you need an added pop of color, pair with a beautiful colored pump or handbag!
If you’re on the go all the time, this is your hero piece! We’ve all experienced leaving the house looking fabulous, but by the time you get to your second or third appointment, your jacket shows it. A thick textured tweed is not only chic, but uber forgiving! Use this as a secret weapon for looking fab throughout a long day! Below I’ve complied a shop-able look book with my favorite tweeds!
