Trend-Spotting | Chanel and Coloured Tweed

Happy Monday Guys&Girls!

In 1924, Coco Chanel discovered tweed and began making the iconic tweed jacket- as classically Chanel as the little black dress or Chanel NÂș5.  And coloured tweed is just so hot right now. Chanel's Autumn/Winter 2013 show's coloured tweed looks were some of my favourites (some of my other favorites- the other Chanel looks). This was the 100th anniversary of Chanel's first boutique.
Focusing on what Lagerfeld called “a global look” the show featured a seemingly endless array of pieces imbued with Chanel trademarks, yet connected to youth culture.

I would wear any of Chanel's look any day, but coloured tweed looks fantastic in more 'everyday casual' outfits too.

Cute and Casual: Wear with a bright bag, basic white t-shirt or tank top, and some cut off shorts or a pair of boyfriend jeans. Gold accessories, opposed to silver, usually look best with any coloured tweed. Finish the look with your favorite flats and either beach-y waves or a high ponytail. Ready for a laid back Sunday afternoon of window shopping and Starbucks with friends.

Chic and Girly: Wear a pastel coloured tweed like pink or blue over a tank top with a club collar and a pencil skirt or  shift dress. Finish with a pair of nude heels. Ready to make an impression.

Fashionable at Work: Wear similar coloured pants and shirt to keep it simple with just the tweed making a statement. Ready for that presentation (or gossiping during that presentation)

How do you wear coloured tweed?

Stay Fabulous,
