"Coco Chanel introduced her first couture tweed jacket in 1954, and since then it has become a sought-after staple in any wardrobe. Every year this iconic item is revisited and reimagined, and we get to enjoy new textures, colors and designs.
Modern tweed fabrics can be a source of inspiration to any woman who cares about what she puts on. Apart from fancy yarn often added to weave (which itself has an interesting look), fabric producers use ribbons, sequins and tassels to create exclusive fashion designs.
Though the Chanel style jacket is the number one buy when it comes to adding tweed to your closet, there are other pieces you can make with this kind of texture. A Chanel inspired dress is no less classic, especially if sewn with some intricate patterned cloth. A Chanel style suit is also worth a look. Depending on the color, you can make a formal style two piece or a festive outfit for special occasions.
The same goes for a coat. There are plenty of silhouettes one can tap into, from long and oversized to cropped and fitted, but it all starts with the right kind of fabric. Precious tweed. There is no in between."
