Today is Coco Chanel’s birthday, and the iconic tweed jacket is unquestionably a large part of her legacy. Styled with a cool, modern twist, the staple reads less Upper East Side and more insouciant, French It-Girl. Here are three modern ways to rock it.
Balance the ladylike silhouette with sculptural, modern culottes. Sleek pumps and vibrant purse complete the professional ensemble.
Instead of your typical jeans, white tee and black blazer combination, for your next date try switching in grey coated jeans, a black crochet tank and a slim-fitting tweed jacket in an evening-appropriate color. Add downtown extras like stiletto boots and a smudge of eyeliner.
A slouchy tweed style makes an excellent alternative to the beloved military jacket. Team with boyfriend jeans, a soft tank and louche accessories.
