Why I’m Wearing Tweed This Winter

It must have something to do with being back in England but every time I go out, I seem to be drawn to tweed jackets. Green tweed, brown tweed, even bright pink tweed…the preppy style jacket is showing signs of a revival for 2020 and I’m pretty pleased about it. Tweed (and especially tweed jackets) have been a staple in British wardrobes for centuries and the fashion world puts regular spins on this old favourite with colourful materials, embellishment and modern tailoring. High street dupes of Chanel’s iconic bouclé blazer sell out every year and you can now get all sorts of clothing items made in this traditional sturdy fabric. I’ve long been a fan of an oversized blazer and this is the perfect way to refresh it. Read on for why I’m wearing tweed this winter and where you can shop yours.

From the office to the park and back again, the great thing about tweed is its versatility. A structured tweed blazer instantly smartens up jeans and a t-shirt, whereas as a double-breasted tweed overcoat adds some variation to the sea of black and navy that usually dominates our winter wardrobes. Tailored outerwear is an effortlessly elegant option and a well-made piece will last for seasons, looking just as chic over wellies or trainers as it does over skyscraper heels or thigh-high boots.

If you want to add a little bit of this chic material into your collection then a classic jacket is a winning option. If the variations in colour and style weren’t enough, tweed is actually surprisingly warm so I’ve included some wintery overcoats into my shopping links, as well as some more structured classics.

What I’m Wearing: Jacket by Gerard Darel, T-shirt by Re/done, Jeans by Reformation, Boots by Stuart Weitzman, Hair bow by La Coqueta.
