Chanel has been the inspiration for many classic items you see today—the little black dress, quilted handbags, and, of course, tweed. Whether it's a cropped jacket, a buttoned cardigan, a charming dress, or a smart suit, the supple, textured fabric is undisputedly a symbol of style thanks largely to the French designer who put the Scottish textile on the map in the 1920s. The fabric continues to be a strong part of Chanel designs, with the brand's latest S/S 23 collection getting us giddy over another round of suit sets and miniskirts.

Tweed is still commonly associated with structured jackets and tailoring, but many brands have taken their own modern approach to the fabric, deciding that it's no longer only for the prim and proper. Think saturated sets, midriff-baring sets, and platform heels for starters. Among the designer selects, we included some easy-on-the-wallet options on the market right now that exude the same modern and Chanel-esque elegance. A new generation of tweed is being ushered in—keep scrolling to take a look.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
