Video: Boring Classics: 10 Best Tweed Coats
We are sure: by the middle of the season, you have studied all the variations of classic things up and down (not without our help). This is especially true of outerwear, which, with the onset of cold weather, turns into a basic necessity. Surely you have already acquired a classic trench coat, a bourgeois beige coat, and maybe even an ultra-fashionable leather coat. Now that all the classics are already neatly hung in your dressing room, you probably want something unusual. Such a coat that will collect a lot of compliments and make passers-by turn around in admiration after you. We seem to know what you are looking for. Your option is a tweed coat.
Tweed is a textured, diagonally woven wool fabric native to Scotland and Ireland. In the last century, Gabrielle Chanel made tweed famous all over the world. She made it into her famous jacket and skirt suit, making tweed forever synonymous with French chic. True, few people know that before that, mostly men's coats were sewn from this dense fabric - and this is another wardrobe item that the great Chanel borrowed from men. Therefore, by inviting you to wear a tweed coat this fall, we are, in fact, returning you to the roots, to the very classics. Moreover, such a classic still looks much livelier and more interesting than the already familiar beige or black coat made of wool or cashmere. Tweed texture adds spice to any look,so that even the most calm colors in this fabric will look very interesting. Proof of this is the gray Red Valentino coat, which will perfectly match both boots with rough soles and boots or ankle boots with graceful stilettos. Variants from Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana directly refer to those very Chanel jackets: both in texture and in cut. They are suitable for those who want to invest in a timeless classic (which, as they say, can be inherited). However, tweed coats do not have to be respectable bourgeois. They have the right to be daring and trendy. For example, like a blue Marni oversized coat with a fringed hem (by the way, one of the key trends of the season). Or as a hybrid of a classic coat and Junya Watanabe biker jacket in yellow tweed with leather inserts.We have collected these and other options for you in our selection - there will definitely be something to the liking of both adherents of timeless classics and lovers of avant-garde fashion.
