Mid-Week Fashion Inspiration: Tweed

By  | 

 

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
