Wearing Tweed This Fall

Tweed is defined as a rough woolen fabric made usually in twill weaves and used especially for suits and coats. Tweed is very durable and can withstand harsh weather. Since summer is coming to a close now is a good time to start planning out your fall looks. When planning for fall tweed is a great piece to have in your fall collection because tweed is especially great for the cooler months.

When I think of tweed clothing one of the first designers that comes to mind is the luxury brand Chanel. Chanel is very well known for it's tweed jackets, coats, skirts and dresses. They even have tweed bags and shoes. Chanel has been doing tweed since the very beginning. But the thing is not everyone can afford Chanel which is fine because nowadays you can find a great tweed look for less at your local retail store. You can find tweed looks for less at retailers like Mango, Zara, H&M, ASOS, Forever 21, Banana Republic, Loft, J. Crew, Club Monaco and the list goes on.

It's always good to have options and with tweed pretty much like a lot of other looks you can find it in different variations, colors and price points. As the weather starts to get cooler in early to mid September and you don't want to buy an actual down coat or a wool coat, tweed is something you can wear in the interim. Tweed is a great transitional piece that is not only good during September but can also carry you into October and maybe possibly into November depending on how heavy the tweed piece is. If you want to wear a tweed sleeveless dress in the fall or early winter and it's a bit cool outside, you can layer with a light turtleneck underneath. Or you can pair the sleeveless tweed dress with a tweed blazer or any blazer or a moto jacket, or a cardigan or anything else that is not as heavy as an actual down coat or wool jacket. The same goes if you were to wear a sleeveless tweed blouse. Tweed is great for layering and pairing with sweaters or anything else you want.
