Chanel made the cropped tweed jacket famous. It is an iconic piece that will add ladylike glamour to your wardrobe. Today, there are plenty of tweed blazers out there. It is a timeless trend. It will never go out of fashion and it is very easy to style. So you better have one in your wardrobe.
THE STYLISTS ADVICE: If you don´t want to have a too dressy look, play it down by mixing it up with funky trend-based accessories. Not you can wear a tweed jacket, but a tweed short or a skirt are also very fashionable. Choose tailored garments that are loosely fitted. I would recommend you high waisted designs and if it gets too cold for bare legs you can easily wear them with tights.
The key tip for a ladylike look is to make sure that the jacket is closely fitted. Team it with a silk blouse and a pair of a black pants or a high waisted pencil skirt. Also keep an eye out for colorful tweed pieces. They are an interesting alternative to common black and neutral tweed fabrics. Colourful tweed fabrics are also great for wearing on a casual basis, and during the warmer months.
The biggest fashion faux pas is to wear too much of the fabric at once. Keep it to one piece of tweed at a time. Make it the statement of your outfit. And dress it up or down accordingly.
