THE TWEED LOOK

Tweed is durable fabric woven together to tell a story. Historically, Chanel is one of the first fashion labels to sport this fabric for their brand. When worn, it conveys a story of  “wealth,” regardless of if a large amount or small amount of money was spent on an item of this fabric. Many retailers today are making tweed garments and accessories more accessible. Fast fashion labels such as Zara, are providing consumers an opportunity to look chic in this fabric while ‘balling on a budget.’ The Tweed Look is a collaborative style guide which considers the everyday fashion budget when wearing this durable fabric.

I partnered with Australian handbag label, Kinds of Grace, to style The Tweed Look! A 100% vegan owned-and-run label, Kinds of Grace is placing a new spin on the term “luxurious.” Bags are crafted in a small studio near Hong Kong using ethical materials such as Eco-Polyurethane, Vegan man-made wool and Piñatex to create modern designs. As a chronic thrifter, incorporating an ethically designed handbag into this style guide is a no brainer!

A green monochromatic outfit is styled to highlight the purple tweed bag. The green dress is belted to accentuate the waist; while this dress is non-dependent upon height, the taller the woman the shorter the dress. Light colored green, matte mules with a perplexed heel add depth to this outfit and creates the allusion of larger feet (I don’t know if this a good or bad thing). Gold jewelry pair with the hardware on the bag, which offers continuity from head to toe.

To learn more about this ethical brand,  visit their website: Kinds of Grace. Since Slow Fashion Season is underway, there is no better time to support this designer! I definitely plan to support this ethical and sustainable brand!
