There's a common misconception that tweed only lends itself to dressy outfits or work attire. However, Katie Holmes' red jacket and jean outfit at the Tribeca Women's Filmmaker Program Luncheon, is proof that the timeless fabric has come a long way. Deemed an unofficial street-style star of 2019, Holmes is serving up yet another eye-catching look that will make you think twice about reserving your classic tweed pieces for special occasions. In fact, her outfit choice is smart, chic and super easy to try out for yourself.
The event took place earlier this week in New York, where Holmes was one of the many celebs in attendance. According to a press release from Tribeca Enterprises, "The luncheon marks the start of the fifth annual three-day workshop — presented by Tribeca and Chanel, in collaboration with Pulse Films, and facilitated by the Tribeca Film Institute. The program will discover and empower ten rising filmmakers with project support, master classes, one-on-one mentorship, peer-to-peer sessions, and will award $100,000 for project development and production."
For the occasion, the star-studded guests wore several different iterations of Chanel's classic designs, but Holmes brought a more casual feel to her red tweed jacket from the Fall/Winter 2019 runway by wearing it over a plain white T-shirt. And instead of going for the full tweed look, the actress styled the polished jacket — adorned with crystal, flower-shaped buttons — with a cropped jeans and a pair of optic white sling-back pumps; topping it off with a classic quilted bag.
When it comes to trying out the look for yourself, taking Holmes' latest look into account is highly suggested, especially if this season's skirt-suit trend isn't for you. If anything, this dressed-down approach shows that it doesn't take a lot of pieces to bring a fresh spin to tweed. So, if you've shied away from the style in fear of it feeling too stuffy, it's time to reconsider as this undefeated outfit is a prime example of how you can give tweed a modern, relaxed feel.
Because you already have these pieces living in your closet, all you need to bring the look to life is invest in a tweed jacket. Lucky for you TZR has rounded up a few different styles to shop now ahead.
