Whenever we think about tweed coats we often imagine a slightly rough and coarse material. Actually, the origin of tweed began on the outskirts of Scotland in the 18th century. The first ones who start wearing it were the upper class Irish and British countrymen. These were woven sturdily from virgin wool in earthy and dusky colour which were designed to protect people from freezing weather and couldn’t get dirty easily. Time passed and gradually this fabric turned into in the different variety of designs. Due to its similarity with tartan, it always has been favourite of fashion designers. The herringbone tweed, which has a distinctive V-shaped pattern, is known for its rich visual texture and loved for its versatility. After that houndstooth tweed adds some more statement-making takes on this time-honoured cloth.

I have been loving tweed coats and blazers since my childhood. I loved when my grandfather and father used to wear tweed jackets and blazers. My mother gifted me a tweed jacket when I was 10 years old and I still remember that brownish jacket.

I already have 2-3 tweed coats in my closet so there was no need to add any more right now but when I saw this Heathered Double-breasted Tweed Coat on the website of Zaful, I completely fell in love with this coat and its beautiful design. I started to imagine the ways I could style it just after seeing it. What was more special about this coat was the addition of multicoloured threads and sparkles that give this coat a festive look. In my opinion, a tweed jacket is a great investment for cold seasons. It is made of warm and sturdy fabrics so really comfortable for chilly weather. The best part of tweed coats is that it doesn’t need much care like other fabrics.

Some women argue that tweed coats don’t give a sophisticated effect to their outfits but I totally disagree with this. It is equal to wearing a large number of colours in small doses and converts, giving life to your simple outfits.

There are several ways to wear tweed coats but in this post, I want to talk about the ways I love.

Wear it with a pair of jeans

It’ll be the most comfortable carefree look. You can style in this way for any winter’s day. Wear your tweed coat with a pair of blue denim jeans with a white or any light coloured top or shirt. Pair this outfit with chunky ankle boots and a lighter coloured bag. No need to wear much accessories with this outfit. You can wear just a bracelet, a watch and simple earrings.

Team it with a pencil dress

For a vintage effect wear your tweed coat with a pencil dress. You can choose both plain or printed dress. I’m always crazy for giving my outfit a vintage impression. You can wear some delicate accessories with this outfit like a thin belted necklace, a bracelet and a lovely pair of earrings. Can be paired this outfit with a long pair of boots but I would love to wear heels with a pair of skin coloured stalkings.

Style it with a long skirt

Another style of a vintage touch is wearing a tweed jacket with a long straight or pencil skirt. Pair it with a simple plain blouse. Finish this look with a pair ankle velvet boots or heels, a stylish clutch and some favourite jewellery. You can add more class with having a hat and you are done.

Pair it with pants

A pair of fitted pants with a ruffle blouse by teaming tweed outwear gives you an effortlessly smart look. A pearl necklace, a watch and pearly colour bag will make this outfit some glam. Complete your outfit by adding a pair of silvery finish ankle boots.

Style it with leather sweatpants

Though I didn’t try my tweed outwear in this way, it’ll be a unique idea to pair it with a black or grey leather sweatpants. Team it with a white or pastel colour top. A light bracelet, a watch and thin necklace will add more beauty to this look. A burgundy or light blue bag will finish this look in a classy way.

Pair it with a flared skirt

It’ll be a beautiful style. I would love to wear my mid length flared skirt with a tweed blazer. You can choose a lighter shade blouse if your skirt is in deep shade. At the same time select a darker one with lighter shade. Team this outfit with a brown knee-high boots and a hat. If you don’t want to wear knee hight boots, pair it with black tights and a pair of chunky ankle boots.

These are some tips for wearing and styling your tweed coats and jacket in winter. I know that there a lot of other ideas to wear this time honoured fabric outwear. I would love to know what’s your favourite way to style your tweed coat.

I styled this gorgeous tweed coat with one of my favourite fall/winter dresses. A magenta, cowl neck midi dress was the perfect choice to make this outfit sassy as well as sophisticated. It added a pop of colour. How amazing is the fact that this coat has subtle shimmers owing to the intricate thread work. The unfinished edges are an incredibly unique touch to the garment. I added a pair of black heels and a small clutch bag to complete my outfit. This outfit can be a great one to wear for any evening occasion, date night or any kind of party.
