Tweed is a huge trend for Autumn/Winter 2018, with it being sent strutting down the runway in shows for Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein and The Row this year. Luxury brands like Chanel are also known for their timeless tweed patterns and classic weaves. Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, Lemaire and Altuzarra also sent tweed down the runway this year, in the form of a vast array of stylish coats and outerwear.
As well as being mega-fashionable, it’s also warm and versatile, making it an excellent practical choice that’s unlikely to date. We love it when a trend’s easy to follow and easy to wear!
One of the best ways to work the tweed look without it looking frumpy is to pair and layer silhouettes and fabrics. That’s where we come in, with our fantastic range of cashmere scarves that are perfect for mixing and matching with the latest on-trend tweed pieces.
A pair of tailored tweed trousers with a fitted top and a layered cashmere scarf is a perfect flattering winter outfit – it also combines practicality too, with layering a pashmina perfect for keeping you warm outside. Cashmere is one of the best fabrics for retaining heat due to the unique way that its fibres sit together, trapping warmth in the fabric.
Another way to rock cashmere and tweed together is to pair a traditional tweed coat or jacket with a bright pop of colour. We love the look of a contrasting cashmere scarf with an otherwise “sensible” outfit. This is the type of outfit you can wear for many winters to come, without it looking dated or out of style.
The great thing about both cashmere and tweed, is that they never go out of fashion. Year upon year, you’ll see pieces in cashmere and tweed on sale in the most fashionable stores. By investing in classic pieces in either of these fabrics, you’ll be able to wear them in the years to come. Our scarves are made from the highest quality cashmere wool, so you can rest assured that they’ll stand the test of time.
This time of year is a great time to buy quality pieces in either Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales, when you can get fantastic quality products, usually at a discount. We’re offering 10% off all of our scarves and ponchos in our Black Friday sale, so if you weren’t sure about treating yourself, there’s never been a better time!
