This Timeless Chanel Trend Has Never Been Cooler—See for Yourself
Chanel has been the inspiration for many classic items you see today—the little black dress, quilted handbags, and, of course, tweed. Whether it’s a cropped jacket, a buttoned cardigan, a charming dress, or a smart suit, the supple, textured fabric is undisputedly a symbol of style thanks largely to the French designer who put the Scottish textile on the map in the 1920s. The fabric continues to be a strong part of Chanel designs, with the brand’s latest S/S 23 collection getting us giddy over another round of suit sets and miniskirts.
Tweed is still commonly associated with structured jackets and tailoring, but many brands have taken their own modern approach to the fabric, deciding that it’s no longer only for the prim and proper. Think saturated sets, midriff-baring sets, and platform heels for starters. Among the designer selects, we included some easy-on-the-wallet options on the market right now that exude the same modern and Chanel-esque elegance. A new generation of tweed is being ushered in—keep scrolling to take a look.
