Spring fashion has finally hit the stores and one trend I keep seeing everywhere is a classic that’s making a comeback – tweed. This timeless fabric has been around for centuries. And this season you can find just about everything made with it. From jackets and skirts to shoes and headbands, there’s no shortage of ways to incorporate this chic and sophisticated material into your wardrobe.
I’m rounding up over 30 cute tweed pieces below. And if you need some outfit inspiration, you’ll also find two ways to style the classic tweed jacket in this post.
How to Wear Tweed in Spring
Tweed has a long history, dating back to the 19th century when it was first used for outerwear for hunting. It was then a favorite amongst British aristocracy. But thanks to Chanel and the iconic tweed suit, the fabric gained mainstream popularity in women’s fashion in the 1920s and 1930s.
The Classic Set
Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular ways to wear a tweed jacket is just like Coco Chanel herself, with a matching skirt. This timeless, ladylike look is for anyone looking to channel classic, sophisticated style.
I paired my blue tweed jacket and matching tweed skirt with feminine, low block heels and oversized sunglasses. I think Jackie O., Princess Diana, and Blair Waldorf would all approve.
Tweed Jacket with Jeans
Surprisingly, a tweed jacket isn’t just for fancy days and occasions. To get the most out of a tweed jacket, you can dress it down with a t-shirt and a pair of straight leg jeans. I added slouchy bag, black Converse sneakers, and white baseball cap to keep things casual.
I love the juxtaposition between this rich, texture fabric and every day, dressed down staples.
