Metro Style Column – Transitional Tweed

Hello all,

Here’s this month’s Metro Herald Column:

Transitional Tweed

The summer sales are all but over and the new season collections are arriving in stores on a daily basis. As a rule I prefer the autumn/winter trends; they’re all warm colours, layers and textures so normally I wouldn’t have a problem prepping my wardrobe for winter.

But then I remember that I haven’t fully prepped it for summer yet, and because I refuse to believe that 2012 is going to be one long autumn/winter, (I’m holding out for an Indian summer). So it seems, dear readers, it is time to talk about transitional trends. Rather than trying to come up with a plethora of pieces that will still look chic when worn with black opaques, I’m looking at one trend instead; tweed.

It’s the staple cloth of the country set and the fabric that revolutionised the Chanel suit. Tweed, and in particular bouclé tweed, is big for A/W’12. But if you want to buy it now, it can be easily translated into summer wear if you style it right. The easiest way to incorporate tweed into your wardrobe is to add a jacket, but far from the prim, traditional styles, this year’s tweed jackets are laid back, functional and painfully cool.

This Yasmin Velloza cropped jacket, (pictured, part of suit €740) makes for pretty perfect transitional Tweed. I’d wear it with these Sandro shorts (pictured €135.00 from BT2) and a white cami for summer. Come winter, leather jeans and a pale denim shirt would complete my look.

However, I can’t think of a better way to wear the tweed trend through all seasons than in this Warehouse coat (pictured €124). The pretty colour and contrast sleeves give the quintessentially sixties cocoon shape, a fresh modern twist. Pale enough to wear on summer evenings and stylish enough to team with patent leather flats and a mini beehive for winter.

Yours,

Whisty Xx
