i've been a fan of tweed jackets for years -- i blame chanel. coco chanel created her first iconic tweed suit - a boxy little jacket and pencil skirt - back in 1923, and we're still wearing them today. tweed jackets are not only classic, timeless, and effortless, but they're especially perfect for today's trendy juxtaposing tendencies. a structured tweed jacket mixed with distressed denim, t-shirts, leather pants, and casual bags looks perfectly imperfect. it's the ultimate finishing touch for any ensemble.
while a chanel jacket itself is clearly the most covetable option, there are plenty of affordable varieties out there. j.crew, tory burch, zara, and even urban outfitters have consistently stocked fabulous selections of tweed! peep some extra-inspirational outfits below:
