This winter season many Fashionistas on campus have been staying warm in their winter tweed because tweed can come in many different shapes and forms! This season we saw tweed jackets and skirts pared for a modern twist coming down the runway. This reoccurring trend with tweed just proves that tweed apparel is here to stay. Often considered a older lady fabric, tweed is now reaching out to Fashionistas on campus!
I found this Fashionista running to class in a lovely tweed skirt, an oversized sweater and lace-up heeled boots. Tweed is a great winter essential because it can be worn as a classic for more professional settings but it can also work as a downtown edgy look. And of course, tweed is a collectable and keeps you super warm! Wear tweed jackets with black skinny jeans and flats for a classic look or opt for a grungy look by wearing a tweed skirt with stockings, combat boots, and a army green cargo jacket for the ultimate downtown chic look.
Dig through your mom's closet to see if she has any tweed apparel and if not check out vintage stores in the DC area. If neither of those options suits your style check out tweed skirts at BCBG or Milly. In order to be a real Fashionista you must learn how work a classic look with your own personal style.
