10 Tweed Pieces for Spring and Summer

By  May 10, 2013

Dressing in tweed may be a style tradition only Grandma has been loyal to over the years, but things are about to change. Usually seen as a cold weather material used to fashion cozy brown blazers and tailed grey trousers, the rough woolen fabric was hot on the runway for spring and summer 2013. Designers used neon inspired colors, a softer version of the fabric, and more modern, feminine silhouettes to give the seemingly dated cloth a contemporary twist. While the classic tweed boucle coat and skirt combo that Chanel made so famous is still relevant, reimagine it this season with a brighter palettes featuring unique embellishment or a show stopping color combination.
