15 Chanel-inspired tweed pieces to wear in 2023
When you wear a piece of tweed attire, it's best to know these style tips as shared in this article.
Chanel tweed jackets may have been created in 1954 but are instantly recognisable – without a logo or monogram emblazoned. The soft tweed jackets Coco Chanel made famous come in different variations – often distinguishable by shiny threads, soft cardigan material, and statement buttons. Celebrities like Kate Moss dressed hers with a pair of denim jeans; actress Keira Knightley got married in one; Blackpink's Jennie attended the past fashion weeks in one; and fashion editors around the world dress their muted looks instantly with the jacket.
For the lucky few who can splurge on one, Chanel's tweed jackets are considered investment pieces, with some resale jackets we've seen on luxury marketplaces, still attracting buyers like bees to pollen.
While not everyone is comfortable spending close to S$9k for a new tweed jacket, many brands have taken the liberty to create Chanel-inspired modern blazers, dresses, and skirts – imitation certainly is a form of flattery.
When you wear a piece of tweed attire, it's best to know these style tips:
Wear it with classic or timeless wear such as sleek pants or sheath dress
Contrast it with a pair of skinny jeans
Pair it with basic attire such as a muted T-shirt so that the details on the tweed jacket stand out
Now that you're gearing up for your next tweed buy, here are some seriously chic pieces we think you can add to your wardrobe and wear to a business meeting or even a night out with friends.
