In 1954, Coco Chanel first imagined the little black jacket inspired by tweed fabric on men’s suits. It was meant to free women from the restricted formality of dress codes and give them liberty to move around. The design quickly gained reputations overseas starting in Hollywood and today it is embraced by stylish women around the world.
Although black remains the forever classic color for the tweed jacket, much more playful colors and textures for different seasons has been developed over the past few decades. Derived from its original presence as the top of a set of a woman’s suit, the tweed jacket is now mixed and matched with jeans, mini skirts, shorts and layered over t-shirts. It is every stylish woman’s must-have!
