Mid-Week Fashion Inspiration: Tweed
Tweed. How to wear them without looking like you are playing dress-up with your grandma’s old clothes? The key is to not wear it head-to-toe, keep it in small doses, unless of course you are part of the royal family. The best tweed piece to start is the tweed jacket. Since this material can be a little bulky, ensure the jacket is tailored and well fitted. Here are some ways to wear them.
To the lecture hall
To tone down the formal dressy feel of tweed, play it down with a pair of fun flirty skater skirt and flats to stay comfortable for all your classes and lectures.
To the office
Pair it with a pair of tailored slacks for a work-appropriate look. Look smart for presentations and meeting, and impress your bosses and colleagues with your chic fashion sense.
To a weekend brunch
The gold piping on this gold flecked tweed jacket adds an air of luxe glamour. Dress it down with a pair of shorts and flats for a weekend affair.
To the Friday movie date
Definitely not stuffy looking when you pair it with a pair of jeans sand pointy heels.
