Tweed and Lycra… That shouldn’t work.

I have recently re-discovered my love of Tweed. I think it’s a culmination of things, a love of vintage fashion, a love of beautifully made clothes, watching Atonement last week and seeing the costumes used in that. Or possibly it’s just from watching the coverage of the Cheltenham Festival. I mean tweed and horses live hand-in-hand.

Anyway, this jacket circa 1940, was made from Scottish Tweed by Barnett-Hutton. Some Tweed can be quite masculine but this jacket has really pretty shades of lilac, pink and pale green in it and has three little, worn, leather-covered buttons. I have to be a bit careful wearing it, which I find really hard to do so I wear it as little as possible. You can see that it was really well looked after before I got my hands on it.

Because the jacket is quite busy, I put it with plain pieces; a silk blouse a plain hat and peep-toe flats. It was looking a bit old-fashioned and prim so to give it a bit of edge I pulled on a plain fitted skirt and a 70’s multi-chain necklace. All outfit details on Herapparel.wordpress.com.
