Fresh New Takes on Tweed for Fall

There's something about tweed—a thick woolen fabric which originated in Scotland (thank you Wikipedia)—that makes one think of wintertime.

This cozy fabric with a classic menswear appeal looks chic, not stuffy, when juxtaposed against anything really feminine (think Chanel's iconic tweed jacket worn with pearls).

Stylehive has a round up of some decidedly modern, on-trend tweed fashions and accessories that are calling my name. See their slideshow here, and check out my tweed fashion-finds below for further inspiration!

That jacket is sooo cute, and looks really comfortable!!

love the lacy tweed in search for light tweed jacket which would be perfect for Cali weather.

I really like that Charlotte Russe dress on the left--such clean, simple prettiness.

I'm liking the cropped tweed jackets, but the boyfriend jacket is really cute too!

Love the look either really softened with feminine delicate jewelry or edged up just a notch with some brassy chain jewelry.

Tweed really is classic. My mom used to wear it and it's still very classy.

Dear BB-
It's probably not "budget" but I'm in love with the blazer in the picture. Where did it come from?
