Buying Into English Tweed

We've thoroughly covered this fall's plaid trend, so now we can delve into my favorite parts of the country gentlewoman look: tweed and velvet.

Being a texture fiend and and Anglophile, it's no wonder I so love tweed. It's one of those things that adds a touch of class even if the rest of your outfit is insane. Try as fashion might to give it a grunge element, it will always be associated with the classic Chanel suit and devastatingly handsome British librarians. (And now is when this bookish and spectacled blogger admits to having a deep love for the sexy librarian look.) Tweed is incredibly helpful when you're trying to figure out what to wear with that slightly boobalicious top or those bold red knee boots.

This week we'll look at tweed breeches and jackets. Next week you can look forward to tweed dresses, skirts, and accessorizes.

Tweed jodhpurs.... I might feel like an extra on Pride and Prejudice but who cares!
