Okay, raise your hand if you’ve associated the word “tweed” with “grandma“. Oh you too, okay cool we’re on the same page.
Except, guess what guys – I’m super into tweed fabric this winter season. I know….I know…wasn’t I just hating on tweed a moment ago? Well sometimes you just find the right piece of clothing to get you to completely change your mind about a fabric and/or trend. Unless it’s Chanel, because the house of Chanel can work miracles when it comes to this classic fabric.
So what specifically changed my mind on tweed? This tweed skirt, which I’ve been wearing to the office on repeat for the last few weeks. From the side zip detail to a lighter and more modern fabric, tweed is no longer just for grandma.
With temperatures hitting so low Chicago as of late, it’s actually taking all my mental willpower to get up and leave my apartment these days. I will say that I have been enjoying spending more time and home alone and reading more.
With work being unavoidable, the need to layer up in warmer layers is critical to forgoing frostbite. Getting dressed in the morning hasn’t been the easiest, especially for someone that hates wearing pants. (For you pear shaped ladies out there, any dress pants that you feel flatter your figure? I’m hunting for a pair that will change my mind on dress pants.)
My go to work wear uniform this past week has included mock neck sweaters and thicker A-line skirts. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m having a moment with A-line skirts and knee high boots, a combo you can’t go wrong with.
So I would love to know from you guys, do you own any tweed pieces in your wardrobe? If so, what’s your favorite item?
