Tweed -- from The Supermelon


Our Trendsetters are a great source for sharing advice about new trends and styles.  One of our Trendsetters, The Supermelon, regularly shares Style and Trend advice in a straight-forward and captivating way (with great photos too!).  Their newly relaunched site goes above and beyond fashion and includes articles on Art and Travel too!  A post this week on The Supermelon highlighted how Tweeds are a hot item this fall.  We wanted to share it with you!  

Tweeds are a quintessential part of a woman’s fall wardrobe. The rough-hewn tweed can be paired with wool hats, plaid shirts and oxfords. Look to Pringle of Scotland ad campaigns for inspiration. You don’t have to wear tweed all over, but you can add just touches of it, such as a tweed jacket or a tweed hat, to your outfit. Tweed trench coats are also available but make sure you don’t look too matronly by dressing head to toe in long tweed suits.

Marc Jacobs fully embodies a youthful way of wearing tweed; that is, tweed strewn with brighter colors like pink (see Marc Jacobs tweed jacket, $460). Armani Exchange also came out with a tweed bomber jacket, which is a cool twist on the leather bomber jacket. If you’re on a tight budget, you should definitely check out the tweed jackets at H&M. It’s great because not only is it affordable, the brighter strings strewn and the cropped length will give you a youthful yet refined look. Of course, you can’t forget about Chanel’s famous classic tweed jackets and suits.
