Happy Birthday to Coco Chanel!

“Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.”

-Coco Chanel


In honor of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s birthday, I thought I’d share a few items that are inspired by her ever so classic tweeds used throughout her years as a designer. Today her use of tweeds still remain as iconic today as it did in 1958!

Clockwise: H&M Coat, $60; H&M Jacket, $35; T Tahari Ruby Jacket, $47; Gap Tweed Moto, $30; Mango Tweed Biker, $45.

When I was growing up, you pulled out your super nice tweed coat for special occasions. But now tweed jackets and coats have been becoming more of a modern staple, being used in casual everyday silhouettes such as bombers, trench coats, and moto jackets.

Clockwise: Express Tweed Cropped Tank, $20; Love 21 Contemporary Fluted Mini Skirt, $18; Gap Tweed Mini Skirt, $28; YesStyle Tweed A-Line Dress, $47.

Here are some other silhouettes that I found in tweed fabric that I thought fit the occasion as well. Happy shopping! 🙂
