Tweed is a sturdy and thick fabric, usually made into jackets with a wool and cashmere blend. Tweed is an elegant choice for fall and winter, often associated with the classy to appear distinctive. A look at the jacket collection from top brands clearly shows that the tweed jacket has evolved from the clean-cut design that aunties rocked in the ’80s.

Drawing inspiration from their styles, brands are shelling out reinvented pieces, which makes the jacket a great addition to your closet. The typical tweed has seen bold design updates such as fringes, exaggerated shoulders, pairing with miniskirts, and cropped versions. The colours do not disappoint either, which is so chic and a far cry from being ugly.

Rounded neck tweed jacket

Some of the classic tweed jackets are sewn rounded neck style. Find a piece that is elevated with jewelled buttons or converted to the bomber design. Styled correctly, they are a great fashion choice.

Dress with minimal effort and layer over a neutral-coloured dress, boots or heels with your jackets to elevate the look. The textured jacket can be worn with a simple turtle neck top, jeans with heels to pull it all together and you’ll still look classy.

Matching set

Sure, a matching set of blazers and skirts is common but the new iterations will give you a rethink. They are far more stylish than old versions. A cute set with a miniskirt, tights underneath and thigh-high boots are all you need for fall outings.

You can also opt for the sets that feature matching shorts, those are cute as well. Keep it real with matching trousers which you can alternate for work and evening dinners, with the right shoes and innerwear to elevate the outfit.

Cropped tweed jacket

The mid-belly baring trend is not lost on tweed jackets as the jackets are made more stylish with the fusion of denim or leather on the sleeves. There are many outfits you can achieve with these cropped weaves. Stay classy by wearing them over a black midi dress and matching heels, along with some jewellery.

Going for a put-together look? Pair with a silk camisole tucked in high waist wide-leg trousers. Pumps or regular flats will complete the look.


A tweed jacket ensemble is an easy way to appear expensive by just throwing them on because they give off a polished appeal. They never go out of style as they have been around for a while.

Thanks to the updated versions, you can easily style them with your everyday jeans. Get a little dose of sophistication with all the colours and weaves added to your wardrobe.
