Tweeds are a quintessential part of a woman’s fall wardrobe. The rough-hewn tweed can be paired with wool hats, plaid shirts and oxfords. Look to Pringle of Scotland ad campaigns for inspiration. You don’t have to wear tweed all over, but you can add just touches of it, such as a tweed jacket or a tweed hat, to your outfit. Tweed trench coats are also available but make sure you don’t look too matronly by dressing head to toe in long tweed suits.

Marc Jacobs fully embodies a youthful way of wearing tweed; that is, tweed strewn with brighter colors like pink (see Marc Jacobs tweed jacket, $460). Armani Exchange also came out with a tweed bomber jacket, which is a cool twist on the leather bomber jacket. If you’re on a tight budget, you should definitely check out the tweed jackets at H&M. It’s great because not only is it affordable, the brighter strings strewn and the cropped length will give you a youthful yet refined look. Of course, you can’t forget about Chanel’s famous classic tweed jackets and suits.

There are many benefits of wearing tweed in the fall: it’s warm, stylish, rustic, and romantic. Just imagine yourself sitting down near a wheat field on a small green hill, reading The Great Gatsby, and your bicycle parked just an arm’s length away. Oh, and wearing tweed, of course.
