Kate Bosworth’s Tweed Suit Is A Fresh Take On An Outdated Trend
Lately, your favorite designers have been finding new ways to revive a classic vintage trend. Tweed hasn't been this in style since Chanel made it popular in the '20s, it seems. Now, Kate Bosworth's tweed suit is proof that this retro trend is on the rise.
On Thurs., the actor did press for her new film, Nona, in New York City while wearing vintage-inspired suit separates that will make you swoon. The set is part of Chloé's upcoming Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which the brand's creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi has called "hippie modernism."
The entire collection is full of bohemian silhouettes, rich colors, and '70s-inspired designs, and the suit Bosworth just wore fits in perfectly with the peace-and-love motif. The two-piece includes high-waisted, flare-leg pants that zip up the front of the leg and a boxy-cut jacket that features multi-hued stone embellishments up the front zipper, along the collar, and on the sleeves.
Now, you might be wondering why anyone would opt for warm tweed on a summer day. However, the suit's woven look is actually printed on a more lightweight, warm weather-friendly material — a perfect example of using the trend in an unconventional way.
While the model on Chloé's runway wore the pieces unzipped to show off a lacy top underneath, Bosworth wore her jacket zipped up, showing only the top of a maroon turtleneck, and the trouser legs zipped down for a more polished, cohesive look. She paired it with a neutral leather handbag by Hunting Season, mustard-yellow boots, and drop earrings by Azlee.
Bosworth shared the look with her 627,000 Instagram followers, calling out her "favorite" brand as the mastermind behind the "rock-star-power-suit." Her sleek separates are ahead of the emerging tweed trend.
The once-outdated look made a comeback on the catwalk of Autumn/Winter 2018 New York Fashion Week, where Alexander Wang showcased pink bouclé, Calvin Klein paired bulky tweed coats over feminine dresses, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh featured a faux tweed maxi skirt.
Like Chloé, Marc Jacobs, Adam Lippes, and Gabriela Hearst have integrated the trend into bold matching separates, too. Tweed is now turning up on sneakers and handbags, proving that designers are still finding new ways to refresh that old-school woven look.
No need to wait until spring to sport Kate Bosworth-inspired tweed, though. The trend is already abundantly available in skirts, coats, wide-leg trousers and the like. It's the perfect way to stay warm this winter and look stylish at the same time. Ahead, The Zoe Report's favorite tweed pieces.
