The Tweed Trend: Tweed Clothing Goes Hip & Edgy
Tweed is no longer just for college professors with elbow patches or stuffy old ladies who lunch. These days tweed has been reclaimed for edgy jackets, flirty dresses, and curve-hugging shorts. Still can’t picture tweed outside a lecture hall? See our fabulous four ways to wear it, and we promise you’ll have a new view on the trend.
It can be hard to pick out an outfit if you've got a number of stops on your list. You want to be comfortable yet put together—you never know who you might run into. These metallic tweed shorts are great for incorporating a bit of upscale material into your weekend wardrobe, and you can't get further from traditional tweed stereotypes. You'll be comfortable and ready for an active day without sacrificing style, trendiness, or polish.
Sometimes you need to break up the work week monotony. The best way? With a fun new outfit, of course! This moto-style tweed jacket is totally work-appropriate, but can also transition from day to night. For the office, pick a pair of brightly colored pants for a splash of color, then keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Sophisticated, yet cool. For a night on the town, ditch the separates and wear your tweed coat over your favorite bandage dress for an edgy-sexy look.
Wearing a party dress to a party … original, right? But take another look at this cheerful tweed dress from Pim + Larkin. Bright, happy yellow, a flattering skater fit, and beautiful tailoring make it more than just a typical sun dress. Accent with metallics and bright colors to complete the look. If you want to get more use out of this outfit, trade in the strappy sandals and clutch for flats and your computer bag and rock it in the office.
Unless you're the one planning it, dates often cause wardrobe meltdowns. Where are you going? How formal is the restaurant? How will he dress? Put aside your worries and opt for something that's put-together, but not too fancy. The peplum top can be a lifesaver in this situation—the fit is unique, and when it's a tweed top, you're adding a lot of interest and texture to your outfit with just one piece. Statement necklaces and sassy heels fulls of details will have you ready for dinner at the best place in town, or to catch a movie.
