We can all give thanks to the legendary Coco Chanel, for bringing the classic tweed jacket to life. Decades later the fashion house’s iconic staple is still one of fashion’s chicest and most revolutionary pieces reimagined and reinvented time and time again. We see trend after trend, season after season but it’s very rare to have one piece that will always remain relevant no matter how many years pass.
Not only has it adapted to make a statement throughout years but it’s a staple that can truly be worn by any woman for a multitude of occasions. From Jackie O to Elle woods, there’s a signature tweed staple for every girl in the game. My style of choice? Classic black with subtle chain detailing and a little fashionable fray. While an original Chanel tweed jacket can run for thousands of dollars, several contemporary designers, like Rebecca Taylor are taking this iconic style and modernizing for everyday wear.
Keeping with the theme of timeless and classic, I paired this Rebecca Taylor jacket with a simple black turtle neck and block heels booties for a chic everyday look. You can also throw a tweed jacket on with a pair of high-waisted trousers for an effortless work-appropriate ensemble, or over a jumpsuit, skirt or dress for a stylish day to evening look. If you’re looking for a little pop of color or a more elaborate tweed weave I’m including several other standout styles in addition to my whole look below!
