Best Cotton Tweed Jackets: The Need for Tweed

Best Cotton Tweed Jackets

It’s getting to be that time when you can finally put away your winter coat and start wearing something just a little bit lighter. No, I’m not talking windbreakers just yet – it’s only the beginning of March after all. We need a fabric with more heft than that – cotton tweed. On days when an extra layer is required, why not spruce up your look with a polished, sophisticated jacket? Here are the sleekest of the season:

Alice + Olivia Princeton Boxy Tweed Jacket: If you like the look of fringed tweed jackets, this short-strand style is the way to go. When the color is bright, a sense of minimalism is welcome with the fabric. At Bergdorf Goodman for $396.

J. Crew Amanda Cotton-Tweed Jacket: Pastel pink is a classic spring choice, but J. Crew adds neon trim to keep the style young and fresh (tweed does have a tendency to age you). On NET-A-PORTER for $198.

Akris Tweed Jacket: No buttons or hooks here! This jacket marries moto with tweed, using a zipper and even a reach around snap collar. At Nordstrom for $1,580.

Tory Burch Eliza Tweed Jacket: A little boho, a little military-style, and best of all, bejeweled! Marble and bugle beads go beyond trendy embellished collar territory and march all the way down the front. At Tory Burch for $525.

Chanel Cotton Tweed Jacket with Leather Trim: Last but not least, the mother of all tweed jackets: Chanel! You can’t very well have a list of the best without at least one from the French fashion house (heck, you could make a list of the best Chanel tweeds and it would be longer than this!). But with leather trim, the style has come a long way from Coco’s classic design. At Chanel for $4,955.
