Originated in Scotland, the coarse woven cloth known as tweed was not always so popular amongst the fabulous and chic style mavens of the world. It wasn’t until Coco Chanel borrowed the masculine fabric for her infamous tweed suits that the fabric took off through couture houses. What was once just a functional laborer’s textile is now a runway worthy fabric and a favorite amongst many designers, so expect your favorite fast fashion stores to be filled with plenty of tweed options this fall.

I’m a self-proclaimed skirt fanatic, so when fall and winter come it’s quite a challenge for me to give in to what my chattering teeth are trying to tell me. A tweed skirt with knee-highs or tights is a great way to keep a look warm and comfy without partaking in a pants only fall wardrobe.
You’ve seen my favorite ways to wear tweed, how will you be wearing it this fall?
