Whenever I think of tweed, I think of my friend Julian. He loves tweed. Even his site design is tweedy! It seems like tweed is fashionable this autumn (well…its supposed to be autumn, but as I type this, I’ve got a long cardi, my fingerless mittens on and a snood on and I’m still cold!)
Heres a few of my favourite tweedy blazers – I’d wear mine with a white blouse, jeans, and some calf length flat boots.
Jack Wills isn’t normally a store I’d venture into – they’re quite overpriced for a shop which mainly sells hoodies and joggers. £110 for a duvet cover* (not even a set!) £3.50 for a big marker pen*? For a shop aimed at university students, the pricing is a bit ridiculous.
However! This “Coldwell Tweed Blazer*” is quite cute – I like the cut and it looks like it is longer than the rest but at £229, its going to be staying on the wishlist for now.
If the Jack Wills jacket was a bit overpriced, then this Admiral Tweed Jacket* from Cath Kidston for £245 is even further down the list. This is less tweedy looking though, and more like a wool jacket. I love the little brooches on the lapels, but not enough love to spend that much!
Unusually, it seems that Topshop has the more affordable versions here. This blazer has velvet trims all over, and even elbow patches! At only £70, its a bit of a bargain compared to the rest! Annoyingly though, this is a “shrunken” blazer – meaning its probably even more tiny than the usual Topshop offerings.
It feels wrong, but this blazer is probably my favourite out of the four blazers here. Not only is it Topshop, but its from the Kate Moss range. Again though, its “shrunken”, so will be too short for me to wear. £120 isn’t a bad price though, and the turquoise satin lining is gorgeous!
It seems I’m still going to be on the hunt for a decently priced well fitting blazer for me. Bah!
