One texture that has caught my eye and I plan to add to my closet this season is tweed.
Up until recently, I overlooked the woven fabric and how versatile it really can be. I think I had the mindset that it is was only for professional purposes, a bit stuffy and reminded me of Cher from Clueless (not that I haven't watched that movie hundred times).
Tweed never seemed to fit my style, until now. It all began when I randomly popped into Old Navy a couple of months ago and found a jacket on mega clearance. I decided it would be something different for the fall and would be fun with distressed denim and heels. So, I scooped it up and brought it home. Now I am just tapping my toes until it's cool enough to wear it.
After that purchase, I never turned back and all of a sudden I began to notice more pieces in stores, primarily blazers and cropped jackets.
Because this is a top trend for the fall, brands have expanded their tweed horizons and designed pieces that are functional, fashionable and go well beyond the houndstooth days.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a quilted tweed vest from Old Navy as well as a moto jacket for an unbelievable price at Target. With the regular sales that J.Crew Factory has been running, this pencil skirt is something I am hoping to add to my closet soon.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have lately been a little obsessed with pairing leather and lace. But as soon as the temperatures drop, I believe that my lace will have a some serious competition and my leather is pretty excited about it.
