Fashion inspires fashion, so today I headed over to one of my favorite lifestyle blogs, Cupcakes & Cashmere, to pick her brain or her blog rather for some fashion envy posts. Living in the skirt world, I love to see how others are wearing their favorite non-bifurcated (two legs) garments. Her tweed and stripes outfit caught my eye...
Speckle Wool Tweed!
So what is a tweed exactly? A tweed is a smooth wool with a homespun appearance. The interesting color effect is made by twisting together multiple colored woolen strands. Tweed is not a pattern, like a herringbone, though it is often woven into like patterns.
I love the contrast of the pink belt and yellow skirt. Below, arrow over to check out the three looks I put together with the Amethyst Wool Tweed, Canary Wool Tweed and the Saffron Silk Tweed with complimentary stripes top.
Sevier Skirts favorite tweeds have a soft luxurious feel. For a warm wool, they are light to medium in their weight.
Above I have three stripes and tweed looks with different accessories to match.
I paired the Amethyst Wool with its complimentary color: yellow. These colors are made for each other so pair 'em up any time! For a casual business look, go for comfortable cheetah flats, brown belt and classic trench.
For the Saffron Silk, I went with a fresh mint to contrast the warm orange. Throw on riding boots for a casually put together look.
Lastly, I have the Canary Wool Tweed. Again, yellow and purple are complimentary colors so I went a little outside the purple lines with this cranberry number to set the yellow off. A red belt is a fun way to tie in the cranberry. Throw on pumps and you've got another great business casual look!
