Take A Cue From Chanel And Fall In Love With Tweed

By  November 27, 2012


Sophisticated, luxurious, timeless tweed;
will it ever go out of style? The woolen fabric has long been a favorite of the Chanel design house, a brand that goes hand in hand with class and aristocracy. From cropped coats to fitted pencil skirts, Chanel’s tweed pieces boast intricate stitching and delicate detailing fit for the elite. Chanel’s Cruise 2013 campaign, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, features gorgeous 18th century style tweed cocktail jackets made modern with unfinished ruffles and rough edges.

While we’re lusting over the styles from Chanel, you don’t have to buy top of the line couture to do tweed. Get inspired by Kate of Oh My Heart. We love her smart tailored tweed fit and flare jumper from Ellen Tracy. With black tights and a turtleneck underneath, the look is totally winter ready and sure to keep Kate warm without making her look bulky. How will you be wearing tweed this winter?
