One fabric that has made a comeback, and is here to stay is tweed. Even with the temperatures rising mercurially, I’ve spotted them everywhere. If you associate tweed with the 1950s and think its super outdated, it’s time to rethink the fabric.
One of the biggest misconceptions about tweed is that it’s solely a winter trend. While I agree that this rugged, moisture-resistant fabric may well be best suited for the darker months, there are a number of ways this fabulous fall fabric can be worn in the warmer spring-summer days as well. It’s particularly perfect to wear inside an office like mine, where the temperatures are invariably arctic.
A number of designers like Anita Dongre, Veronica Beard and more exhibited sleek tweed numbers in their collections, proving that when done in pretty pastels and breezy, sleeveless silhouettes, tweed has the power to look polished and spring-summer ready in a snap.
A couple of things to keep in mind while wearing tweed in summers:
- Go for a cotton-wool blend where the cotton content is higher. This makes the outfit more comfortable and breathable.
- Choose the seasonal colors and go bright and sunny. Spring-summer is the time to brighten up your color palette and play around with all shades of blue, white and pink. You can choose anything from pastels to florals. Tweed dresses, like this one look prettiest in ladylike hues. For an extra pep, go for the one with frills or fringes.
- While accessorizing, choose to keep it simple and elegant. A string of pearls around your neck, a small chain-strap bag, and simple stilettos should do the trick.
So don’t let your tweed dresses languish in a darkened wardrobe waiting for the brighter months. Take them out and make them work!
