Not your granny’s tweed!

Fin­ish­ing touches

Shake up any look with state­ment ac­ces­sories. Funky, sparkly ear­rings pull graphic tweed into the 21st cen­tury. LEFT Coat and skirt both Carolina Her­rera; jer­sey Hil­figer Col­lec­tion; ear­rings Marni RIGHT Jer­sey Marc Ja­cobs; trousers Hil­figer Col­lec­tion; ear­rings Marni

Suit up

The sleeve­less jacket, the cropped trousers, the colour – this sea­son, go for sporty takes on a typ­i­cal tweed suit. Jacket, jer­sey, trousers, brooch, gloves and heels all Prada; bag Eti­enne Aigner


Need a look that’s se­ri­ous enough to take to the of­fice and sexy enough for a date? Con­sider a form-fit­ting tweed sheath, topped off with jumbo pearls and la­dy­like gloves for night, and a cardi­gan for day.

Happy days

Fresh up­date: choose tweed pieces in sunny hues and wear with equally colour­ful ac­ces­sories. LEFT Coat and bag Miu Miu; ear­rings Dsquared2; gloves Ser­mon­eta Gloves RIGHT Dress, ear­rings and bag all Miu Miu; gloves Lacra­sia Gloves

Rebel, rebel

For a dose of bad-girl edge, add a tough ac­ces­sory, like a spiked neck­lace or a pair of leather gloves, to a clas­sic sil­hou­ette. LEFT Dress Dolce & Gab­bana; polo neck Alexan­der Wang; neck­lace Erick­son Bea­mon; gloves Ser­mon­eta Gloves; bag Dior; heels Prada RIGHT Coat, ear­rings, gloves and heels all Ba­len­ci­aga

Of­fice ready

Bye-bye suit and tie. A pol­ished but­ton­down shirt pairs per­fectly with a cool col­lar neck­lace and de­sign­ers’ favourite car-wash skirt. LEFT Coat Em­po­rio Ar­mani; skirt Alexan­der Wang; ear­rings Miriam Haskell; ring Cartier; bag Ba­len­ci­aga; boots Dior RIGHT Shirt, skirt, neck­lace and boots all Dior
