One day, I will invest in a Chanel tweed jacket. I love that they work on any age, are seemingly fad-proof, and can be dressed up or down as well as made to feel either edgy or classic. See above and below for inspo. Many of these chic peas demonstrate beautifully how well this jacket can transform jeans and a tee!
A few favorite tweed finds for the fall 2021 season…
HUISHAN ZHANG // BARI LYNN HEADBAND ($32!) // TED BAKER (UNDER $200!) // PINK CHANEL BAG // NAVY CHANEL BAG // B + AB JACKET // J. CREW // MANGO // HOBBS LONDON HOUNDSTOOTH // SANDRO DRESS // PADDED TWEED HEADBAND // WOVEN CROSSBODY (UNDER $100)
Even more options below. Immediately below, sharing some crazy chic tweed toppers, cardigans, and jackets (and a few non-tweeds that feel like “sister pieces”) at all pricepoints…
LONGLINE IVORY WITH PERFECT PEARL BUTTONS — LOVE THE TIE WAIST!
HUISHAN ZHANG — MAJORLY LOVE
THIS EMBELLISHED-BUTTON STEAL — $80 AND FROM THE MOST UNEXPECTED SOURCE BUT WOULD LOOK FAB THIS FALL
And then a couple of bonus items in this general vein — boucle dresses and Chanel-inspired finds…
SUPER LOVE THIS SHIFT — I OWNED A SIMILAR STYLE A FEW YEARS BACK AND MADE A MAJOR PITCH TO AN INVESTOR IN IT…
THIS BALMAIN (GASP)
TWEED TROUSERS (GASPS AGAIN)
MY FOREVER ANSWER TO WHAT TO WEAR TO A WINTER BAPTISM
Of course, all of these would look unreal with a vintage Chanel bag. Love this timeless navy moment but something about this multicolored one makes my heart sing. And you can get the look for less with a Caterina Bertini bag — I love it in the white woven (on sale for under $100) or beige!
I also feel compelled to note that Hill House has a back-to-school drop coming up on September 9th; you can see the line sheet here, and plan accordingly. I was planning on holding out to see what tartans and velvets they have up their sleeve for the holidays but I think I really must have their brand new Cher dress (see below) for sure in the tartan but maybe also in that fabulous coconut tweed?!?!?! AHHHHH j’adore les deux! I want to wear both with a turtleneck and opaque tights and maybe these heels for a serious throwback to Gossip Girl / Clueless moment. Can you tell I’m obsessing over the return of 90s fashion?!
P.S. Speaking of school, what would you study if you could go back?
P.P.S. If tweed isn’t your vibe, check out all of these fab sweaters at different pricepoints.
P.P.S. Are you a “numbers person“?
