The Need for Tweed

Tweed is a quintessential winter staple. Tweed is a wool fabric that is soft in texture and most widely used in outerwear because of its durability. But it isn’t just used for warmth and durability – it is a major staple for the winter months. Some may label it ‘geek chic’ and pair it with their Mary Janes and their adorkable plastic glasses. But in a bright color it can be playful and fun and in a dark hue, chic and sophisticated. The most common tweed items are usually blazers, skirts and outerwear. I personally love a tweed blazer and a tweed miniskirt. Here are some of my top tweed picks:

What I love about a tweed jacket is that it can be paired with jeans and jewels for a night out or a pair of slim trousers for a day at the office. Here are 2 ways to wear a classic tweed jacket:
