Outfit ideas with tweed jackets for women are trending.
But before we move on, I have a question for you, what is a tweed jacket? Tweed is a type of cloth that couples woolen fabrics with worsted, and the word derives from ‘tweezed’, meaning twisted. Tweeds were originally used for shooting on grouse moors, and it was an invention of the 19th century – first seen in 1826. Tweeds are now exclusive to men’s suits but how do you wear one? Women have found ways around this. In this blog, we give you outfit ideas for wearing tweed jackets for women.
Why are tweed jackets trending?
Tweed is a great transitional fabric; it’s perfect for those on the go. It can be worn with jeans or a simple dress, and in more formal settings too. If you’re an outdoorsy person, you’ll love tweed jackets, as they look like a warm, comfy blanket. Think: cosy! Tweeds also work well with a range of accessories like hats and bags so try combining them with your favorite items you can find at home.
Tweed jackets are also the perfect alternative to faux fur coats in a cold climate. They work well with any outfit from jeans to dresses and skirts. To finish off your look, consider adding a beret or a classic beaine. Like our earlier outfit idea, you can wear a tweed over something smart such as jeans or trousers. This gives the whole look a cosy feel. The longer your jacket sleeves, the less formal you’ll look.
What type of accessories look great with tweed jackets
A hat or headpiece: Both can add on a dollop of pizazz. And remember to complete this look by adding gloves too.
A big necklace: This will make your outfit more interesting. You can choose one that’s long and drapes, or a statement piece that will attract attention.
A pair of earrings and a watch: A tweed jacket is perfect to wear with a pair of simple studs or hoops. Why not add on something more interesting like a colourful watch?
