If you’re looking for a versatile fabric which can easily be translated from day-wear to evening-wear, it’s time to turn your attention towards tweed! Described as an unfinished and rough fabric, it’s iconic look is achieved through weaving different colours of yarn together or through yarn dyeing. Typically found in herringbone, plaid, and chequered patterns, tweeds attract the eye with harmonious colour pairings, creating unique and textured styles. This classic material is soft and flexbile- a comfortable choice for everyday wear that delivers sophistication.
Tweed’s durability is ideal for chic outerwear, making it a key transitional material between seasons. While you might typically think of tweeds in subdued browns, blacks, and greys, for the upcoming chilly months and holiday season, we’re seeing a trend towards colour!
Worried that a colourful tweed may be too loud or overpowering? The trick is to choose your tweed, and then build your outfit around it. You can either keep things simple and effortless by pairing your bright tweed with blacks and whites, or you can choose one complimentary colour to highlight the dominant colour in your tweed.
These looks can really lighten up the drabby season. You may want to start shopping for your statement colourful tweed piece for your upcoming holiday party!
Here are some looks that we love.
