An item on my dream wardrobe wish list is a classic, Chanel tweed jacket. They are somewhat hard to come by, not to mention crazy expensive. Since I don’t see myself picking one up anytime soon, I’m always on the lookout for similar tweed pieces that will stand the test of time. Did I mention I love tweed? There’s something so sophisticated and refined about this luxe, textured fabric. It’s obviously an appropriate choice for the office, but I love pairing it with more casual pieces in my closet to give it a bit of edge too. It’s versatility is also shown in how it works throughout the year – heavier tweed jackets look so glam and polished in the fall and winter with leather leggings and jeans, and tweed skirts (love this one) and shorts look adorable with tanks and silk blouses come spring/summer.
If you’re as big a fan of tweed as I am, you need to check out St. John’s collection for spring! SO many gorgeous styles… A few you can’t miss? This confetti pencil skirt (love all the colors – so many styling possibilities!), this creamy ivory dress (heaven!), and this boucle tweed fringe jacket. On the non-tweed side of things, I’m obsessed with this zig-zag knit dress, this stunning crepe gown, and this electric pink fit-and-flare frock.
