Modern Ways To Wear Chanel’s Iconic Tweed Jacket

Today is Coco Chanel’s birthday, and the iconic tweed jacket is unquestionably a large part of her legacy. Styled with a cool, modern twist, the staple reads less Upper East Side and more insouciant, French It-Girl. Here are three modern ways to rock it.

Wear To Work

Balance the ladylike silhouette with sculptural, modern culottes. Sleek pumps and vibrant purse complete the professional ensemble.

Wear On A Date

Instead of your typical jeans, white tee and black blazer combination, for your next date try switching in grey coated jeans, a black crochet tank and a slim-fitting tweed jacket in an evening-appropriate color. Add downtown extras like stiletto boots and a smudge of eyeliner.

Wear On The Weekend

A slouchy tweed style makes an excellent alternative to the beloved military jacket. Team with boyfriend jeans, a soft tank and louche accessories.
