Tweed is a classic fabric that exudes class and refinement. Coco Chanel comes to mind when I see tweed. The knobby material intricately woven in jackets, skirts, and shorts matched with pearls is the definition of a classy outfit.
Tweed is a rough, unfinished woollen fabric of a soft, open, flexible texture. It is made in either plain or twill weave and may have a check or herringbone pattern. The multi color effects are obtained by twisting together differently coloured woollen strands into a two- or three-ply yarn.
I wear my tweed jackets with denim and skirts and love a tweed short with tights and a blouse. I often toss on a strand of pearls to perfectly compliment the look or edge it up a bit with an ear jacket and stacked bracelets. Which ever combination you choose, a tweed item is sure to fancify any outfit you choose.
