Is there anything chicer than a classic tweed piece? 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 of course to Coco Chanel, who put the Scottish textile on the map in the 1920s. The fabric continues to be a strong part of Chanel collections, with the latest F/W 19 runway show getting us giddy over the coolest tweed blazers, coats, pants, and dresses for the season ahead. But here’s the thing: Not everyone can afford to put down major bucks on an iconic Chanel jacket. So what do you do when you want to look Chanel but can’t afford Chanel? Luckily, there are some great easy-on-the-wallet options on the market right now that are modern, sophisticated, and exude a Chanel-esque elegance.
