Tweed is trending! The fabric usually reserved for the upper echelons, Chanel wearers and Grandma is now considered universally cool. Call it the Duchess Kate or Made in Chelsea effect. Tweed is everywhere from jackets, short suits to dresses and even bags and shoes! I’ve picked out 13 hot buys for Spring/Summer 2013!

 

Tweed goes with everything! Choose a structured jacket to wear with jeans or over dresses. Go for bright colours or neon tweed for springtime chic. You can even add tweed to your office attire. Choose a monochrome jacket or a pencil skirt for an on-trend look.

 

 

Dare to bare your legs this summer? Go for an oh so cute pair of tweed shorts in metallic or floral print. Or a short suit below in classic monochrome. Wear over tights in cooler weather and with high heeled pumps for a stylish night-time look.

 

 

There are so many gorgeous tweed dresses to choose from! Ladylike silhouettes in an array of colours and fabrics. Work your tweed with lace or leather, choose embellishments or bright palettes for a unique take on this trend.
