Hi, I'm Claire Wacey and I'm a personal stylist, and today I'm going to give you some great style tips. For anything you don't find in these videos, go to my website and check out all the tips I have there. Hi.
Today, I'm going to talk to you about how to wear tweed clothing. Tweed is a massive autumn/winter trend in 2010 and it seems to come back every year in a different format. So for example, if you've got tweed in your wardrobe from last year, it's just about updating it with the current season's trends.
For example, blouses are really key for this season so you can update a last season waist coat with a current season blouse. A waist coat's a really simple way of adding tweed into your wardrobe. You can layer it over t-shirts, blouses, anything you want really, and it also helps to cinch in your waist and define your figure.
This is a classic tweed, it works really well with a work trouser, a pencil skirt or you can pop it with a really nice easy jean look as well just for something more smart casual. A really good way of also dressing up that simple waist coat is to add lots of different colours in so for example, those oranges, those autumnal greens, are really fantastic in bringing those colours from the tweed out and making it much more a statement look. Another really good way of wearing tweed is to add into your skirt look.
Now, this is just a classic a-line skirt and it's got a little bit of detailing on the side. This is a fantastic middy length so it works really really well with a knee-high boot or woollen tight or Mary Jane. But tweed also works really fantastically in a pencil skirt, so for example, add into your work wardrobe in a pencil, take it really easily with a blouse or a cami top, knitwear, it's really really easy to add into your wardrobe.
This is a fantastic a-line, it's classic to the tweed look, it's kind of got that Scottish feel, imagine having your Wellies on and hiking over the mountain, but I think it's really really important to make it current and make it for you. So, think about your body shape when you're choosing your skirt shape so if you've got more of a pear shape, go for an a-line. If you're slightly more hourglass, go for a pencil.
If you're maybe slightly more up and down, go for a tulip shape skirt but keep that tweed in the bottom half. Then to make the top half more exciting, just go for something really simple like a t-shirt. But to make it much more of an exciting outfit, think about adding a different element to the look.
So, really simple ways just to add in that leather jacket. Now, the combination of the leather and the tweed in a t-shirt just keeps that layering feel and that really sumptuous warm winter feeling. Really, another easy way to update just a simple t-shirt and a tweed skirt is to add in a little bit of fur and this is like a Mongolian lamer thing.
Just add in a little bit of fur and fluff in the top and that texture brings it back into that feel of the countryside and the country chic. Another option is to add a fabulous leather glove and I've gone for a real statement colour but it's a really fab way of making this tweed look much more luxurious, making it less kind of cumbersome and making it much more elegant. Another really fab way of wearing tweed is to go for something a little bit more exciting, so a trouser's an obvious choice, but why not go for short? With a woollen tight or a really really heavy denier like an 80 or a 100 denier tight, just really really thick underneath, some knee-high boots or some slouchy boots, a really nice chunky knit or a fitted cardigan on top, creates a really really fun way to wear tweed and it's much more exciting than just for example wearing a skirt or a trouser which is really really classic.
Even mix your tweeds and pop like a different tweed on top, for example, this waist coat with the exciting tweed which a bit of a metallic on the bottom. Metallic tweeds are really really easy
