STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Tweed Coat

Style Advice of the Week

I have always been a coat collector thanks to my grandmother, and this winter is no exception. A classic coat is a must-have for every Fashionista, whether it be a classic trench coat such as this perfect Burberry trench or a leather jacket. Faux or real, a coat is the ultimate accessory during the colder months. While there are certain winter coats every Fashionista should own, like the puffer or the camel coat, there is one more I suggest you invest in this winter.

Made famous by Chanel, the tweed jacket has since transformed into various shapes and colors. I spotted this Fashionista headed back to her dorm after morning classes. This Fashionista’s tweed coat is a perfect example of this. The ruffled collar gives this classic print a girly feel, while the tapered waist gives her a nice silhouette.

Due to the indecisive weather, this material is perfect for those chilly New England mornings. This Fashionista leaves her coat undone giving it a casual feel over her bright sweater and jeans. She completes her look with a great pair of taupe boots.

While we can all envy Burberry’s take on the tweed jacket, there are a ton of options when trying to pick out a new winter coat. This Marc by Marc Jacobs tweed coat has a looser, more masculine feel to it perfect for anyone who likes to walk the line between menswear and womenswear. This Tibi double-breasted peacoat has nice contrast between the tweed and different colored sleeve. This GUESS coat has leather accents, which is right on trend this winter. Jessica Simpson has a pretty tweed coat in a lighter color and a hood perfect for unexpected snow flurries.
