STYLE JOURNEY: THE NEED FOR TWEED

simplybetweed2

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

I am curently digging the tweed trend. I have always been a fan of tweed ever since I laid eyes on a Chanel tweed suit. when I was a high school student. I know alot of young women who dislike tweed because the think its for the more mature woman and I completely understand. Tweed has such a sophisticated look and feel to it that its hard to see it as youthful. In my opinion, I think tweed paired with something casual or tough gives it a modern look and appeal. I like tweed with denim and I love tweed with leather.

Recently, I spotted this tweed boucle moto jacket (gifted) on the Simply Be website and I knew I just had to have  it. The moto style just gave it a cool look and the multi-colored thread blended in the jacket added a feminine touch. This jacket can be worn with many things but for my first test drive, I decided to wear it with a faux leather skirt from Lane Bryant.  I wanted to bring out the colorful threads in the jacket so I opted for a pink roll tab shirt from Calvin Klein Plus. I accessorized with silver jewelry from Forever21 and wore a pair of suede pumps from Vince Camuto. I plan to rock this jacket with jeans on the weekends.
