3 Ways to Style Tweed Jackets in Spring


Women's tweed jackets

The timeless appeal of the tweed jacket designed by Coco Chanel is renewed season after season, to the point of becoming a classic in the women’s wardrobe. 

Tweed jackets are timeless pieces that always add style and elegance to women’s outfits. They will give you a Parisian allure even with jeans or leggings.

The tweed jacket style revolution

Coco Chanel, with her creations, wanted to guarantee ease and charm. She understood that menswear had exactly this goal, and it became her main source of inspiration. When Coco discovered the potential of tweed, she worked to provide comfort with refined fabric. The sleeves are sewn at the top of the shoulder to ensure greater comfort of movement. She elevated the design with jeweled buttons.

From Karl Lagerfeld to Virginie Viard

The tweed jacket designs have adapted to modern times. Karl Lagerfeld took Coco’s stylistic legacy and brought it into the 21st century with new volumes and innovative fabrics like leather, sequins, denim, and even terry cloth. Today, creative director Virginie Viard updates it with petite cuts, mandarin collars or ruffled hems.


Tweed jackets have become one of the most popular women’s clothes because they are elegant, wearable, and very versatile. From the traditional designs to cropped tweed jackets, they imply fresh air with elegance and glamor.

Recently, this preppy-essential piece broke away from its more classic style to enter a universe where anything is possible. Now, tweed jackets are not only worn with midi skirts, but with jeans, skirts and dresses.


The union of jeans and a tweed jacket style creates a casual outfit elevated to a classy look. Achieve a chic and modern look by adding some slingbacks to the outfit.

– The jacket should fit perfectly to enhance the woman’s silhouette and the jeans should preferably be high-waisted and have an ankle-length cut. This combination flatters most women.

– You can also combine your tweed jacket with flared jeans and a basic sweater. Add heels, a belt, a shoulder bag, and sunglasses to make a difference.

– Put on some white sneakers to build a more casual look.


Another stylish way to wear the tweed jacket is to combine it with modern leather pants. For a slim fit, wear a jacket with a wider cut to balance volumes. You can wear a crop top to give the look a fresh and very trendy twist.

TIP: Wear a jacket in vivid colors to contrast with the monotone bottoms. Invest in a mauve or fuchsia tweed jacket to revitalize your basics.


Tweed jackets work well with both short and long skirts. It is a classic yet modern look that takes women’s streetwear to the next level. Choose a vintage or retro-look tweed jacket that you can combine with all kinds of skirts, from flared to pencil ones. Complete the look with polished loafers or boots.
