Worn properly, tweed looks elegant and sophisticated. Worn incorrectly without planning your entire outfit, it looks disastrous. When buying tweed, don't overdue it. It looks best when you accentuate your outfit subtly by adding a simple tweed jacket or skirt, and changing things up according to trends of the current season provides a fashion-forward look. Quality tweed clothing lasts a long while, so you'll be able to wear it for many autumn and winter seasons to come.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Wear a fitted tweed vest on top of casual clothing to provide warmth in cold seasons. Suitable on everyday errands or even for work, it offers an elegant and sophisticated look.

  2. 2

    Wear a good-quality tailored tweed jacket that accentuates your waist. Pair it with a fitted pencil skirt and heels, perfect for leisure and business attire. Wear a silk or chiffon blouse underneath and tuck it into your skirt. It'll look chic and elegant when you take off your jacket. Sew on exaggerated coloured buttons to make your jacket more fashionable.

  3. 3

    Wear a tweed pencil skirt -- but make sure it fits properly. If it's baggy, you'll look like you're bulging in all the wrong areas. If a pencil skirt down to your knees is too long, consider a tweed miniskirt. Either way, pair it with a flirty ruffled blouse and sleek boots.

  4. 4

    Add a splash of colour. A bold belt or jewellery can make a dull tweed jacket or skirt come to life -- especially in fall. A brightly coloured scarf paired with an equally bold clutch or bag brings the outfit together. If you're comfortable in heels, try a bright patent leather style that accents the subtle colours in your tweed.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't wear too much tweed all at once. It's a heavy fabric that will draw too much attention as a fashion disaster if worn in large amounts.
  • Tweed gives a matronly effect; if you're older, wear less. It's easier to get away with tweed when you're younger.
