  • Posted on

    Tweed jacket and tweed gilet   Tweed is the backbone of many a gent’s autumn and winter wardrobes, but that doesn’t mean it should be relegated to storage come springtime. With the great British weather giving us changeable weather on a daily basis, tweed is a wonderful option to wear all season long – with the right styling, of course. Follow our tips to make the most of this countryside essential.     Go light or bright Choose a tweed jacket or suit in a lighter shade than you’d normally wear, and team it with complementary, tonal shades. Spring is also the perfect time to push the boundaries and try out a brighter colour or a striking pattern. Go on, we dare you…     Try lighter layers Wearing tweed needn’t mean wearing it head to toe. Our tweed gilet is a wonderful way to add an extra layer of warmth without fully committing to the whole look. Likewise, our new Loro Piana jacket (in tan) is made from a luxurious lightweight fabric that looks like tweed, but is more suitable for warmer spring days.     Spring styling It’s impossible to go wrong with a classic tweed jacket layered over a pale blue linen or chambray shirt. A touch of spring colour will make the overall look more season-appropriate. You could also try pairing your tweed jacket with smart jeans for a contemporary look to take you anywhere.     Feeling inspired to refresh your spring wardrobe?
