Tweed brings to mind English libraries and leather club chairs, leather-patched elbows and bow ties, but today, a tweed suit is so much more. The luxurious feel of unfinished wool, dyed in bright and bold colors or traditional black, gray and brown and fine details combine to create glorious business suits for women as well as a variety of more causal suits. From bright pink suits for Sunday brunch to a more formal suit in soft gray, finding the ideal suit in traditional tweed is easy.
Women turn to a tweed suit by Calvin Klein, AGB, Nine West and more. For a professional outing, a simple suit in soft heather gray, charcoal black or creamy white is ideal. Paired with basic pumps and a matching briefcase, the look is ideal for business. For a bolder professional look, choose a brighter color. Pink, yellow, green and blue are all excellent choices. Power red, paired with a white shell and gold jewelry makes a bold statement. Sunday brunch or other casual affairs are easy to dress for with a suit in a bold color. Fuchsia is an ideal choice and pairs beautifully with sandals or wedges. Finish with a pearl necklace and matching earrings.
A tweed suit is often traditional, with an a-line skirt and matching jacket; however, today suits can also mean pants and a contrasting top. Wide-leg pants are ideal for a variety of body types and tweed is warm enough to wear during even the coldest weather. Consider pairing wide-leg tweed pants with a simple blouse and matching jacket. Add a touch of whimsy by replacing the belt with a men's tie or use a favorite scarf instead.
Finish off any suited look with pumps and a matching belt. For colder weather, add in a fun scarf or wool wrap. Bring tweed into the light with a bold tweed suit, available at Macy's.
