Tweed is perfect for fall—it’s relatively lightweight but still provides ample warmth. Tweed is an obvious choice for suits and jackets, but here are some more unexpectedly chic ways to work the fabric into your fall-to-winter wardrobe.
Sporting bare legs isn’t always the way to go into fall, but when you have on a thick tweed pencil skirt, bare legs become cool-weather right. This is a great piece for the work wardrobe, pair it with a chiffon or cotton long-sleeved button up and a pair of standout heels. Go for a herringbone-style tweed.
Ankle length, streamlined, tailored—cigarette pants are oh-so-flattering. And in a medium-weight tweed, they bring a little heft to a look that works perfectly for fall. A small, checked pattern or balanced plaid keeps legs looking long and lean.
What better way to telegraph your inner Coco Chanel than with a shaggy boucle tweed jacket. It’s a timeless piece that will never go out of style—well worth he investment. You can make it a bit more playful by using a color-flecked boucle, or go the more sophisticated-chic route with more solid neutral.
The wide-leg look is in this season, so making a tweed version is an obvious style move. Opt for a heather gray, flecked with black and white to keep it looking refined. You can also add a large cuff at the bottom for more visual interest. Matching jackets with large buttons and cinched waists have also been making their mark on the fashion scene.
A sheath dress in a lighttweight neutral tweed is a great addition to the cool-weather wardrobe arsenal as it can be layered in so many different ways to create completely different looks. Try it as the top layer, with a button-up underneath with tights and ankle boots for a more professional look. Or, toss on a leather moto jacket, chunky ankle socks and combat boots to take it downtown.
