Tweed is the word!

Tweed has been around since the 1800’s.  It is a woven fabric obtained by twisting together differently colored woolen strands into a two-or three-ply material.  It has made a comeback in different colors and textures and it’s a great material for the office and to transition your wardrobe into the fall.
  1. This modern take on tweed in a bright coral color which is great for many body shapes with the peplum flare.  Try it with a cropped white trouser if you just don’t want your summer to end.  It also works great with skirts.
  2. Gone are the days of the matching tweed skirt suits that your Grandmother used to wear.  This modern tweed skirt has a metallic edge.  Pair it with a simple blouse that will guarantee to have heads turning at your office because you just look so chic.
  3. The 3/4 length sleeve of this modern tweed jacket creates a casual yet polished look.  The blue undertones go well with your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.  Casual Friday and weekend – yes please!
