Ageless style: Wardrobe staples for everyone by fashion stylist Arabella Greenhill

From the Chanel catwalk to the country classic, a tweed blazer is one of fashion’s most loved pieces and will add a traditional touch to any outfit. 

This one is a modern take, with a looser fit that allows movement – not like the old stiff tweeds of yore! – and pairs well with anything from denim to leather. Here’s how to wear tweed for autumn…

  • Coordinating a colour from the check with your other pieces (in this case, blue) will pull the outfit together. Avoid prints, as they’d be too much of a clash.
  • For a casual look, opt for slouchy-fit jeans.
  • To update the fabric’s ‘vintage’ feel, keep accessories sleek and modern.
