Tweed can be a tricky item to style as the weather gets warmer. One the one hand, you can’t deny the classic chic-ness that tweed brings to any outfit. But, on the other hand, you don’t want to end up sweating like a pig and end up suffocating in all your stylishness. So what’s a girl to do?
Two words: Think Short. As in: shorter hems, shorter sleeves. You definitely don’t want full coverage with any sort of tweed as you’re sure to be boiling.
For bottoms, I say go for a skirt. Skirts also offer your legs room to breathe and are much more practical instead of pants in the warmer weather. I’m loving my new BB Dakota skirt here as this size 2 still looks like it’s almost a mini skirt on me!
And if you have yourself a tweed top such as a Chanel-esque jacket (lucky you!), I would opt for something with either short sleees or cropped 3/4-length sleeves. Or if that’s not an option, wear the jacket with a tank underneath (and pray that the tweed doesn’t starting itching!).
So there you go. My two cents. 🙂
