Styling Tweed Jacket Fashion BlogSafe to say tweed still had a pretty bad rep up until recently, but it was totally unwarranted.  Even with Chanel suits pinging to mind as soon as the word 'chic' is mentioned, the material still seemed to throw us back with negative connotations.  But then tweed jackets and mini skirts appeared everywhere (with definite Clueless vibes) - and I fell in love.  Seriously.  I'm now 100% converted to tweed jackets and nagging everyone to give one a go, because there's just something feminine and powerful about them.  Plus, they seem to work well with every occasion.  Meeting a friend?  Throw one over a knitted midi dress. Scheduled a meeting?  No problem, pair with a pussybow shirt and jeans.  Getting ready for a date?  Drape over your shoulders, the focus is on the tight-fitting velvet underneath.  Heading to the gym?  Fine, maybe not every occasion...

How to Look Chic in a Tweed Jacket in Winter
Styling literally feels as though it's become ten times more interesting now that the cold weather has arrived.  Layering, layering and more layering.  Love it.  My saved tab on Instagram has become increasingly chaotic, with so many gorgeous minimalist, layered looks appearing left, right and centre.  For this look, I've kept to my usual monochromatic styling, to let the burgundy tweed pop.  Although, it turns out it's having to compete with the gorgeous block-heels on these Elana boots from Dolcis!  Damn, I love a good pair of over-the-knee boots...
