TheFind Guest Post: Trendy Takes On Tweed That Won't Make You Look Like a Grandma

For some reason, there's something about tweed that seems to give off a dated, stuffy vibe. Maybe it's because of the itchy wool fabric you used to always hate as a kid, or maybe it's just the association with the kind of matchy-matchy suit your grandmother would show up wearing to Easter brunch. In any case, this season's tweed pieces are all about reinventing the fabric into something that's chic, cozy, and undeniably modern. Coats, trousers, skirts, shorts, and even bags and shoes -- there's nothing tweed can't conquer, and if you choose wisely, you can make the trend work for you in a way that's preppy-chic but hardly uptight!

I'm loving this tweed jacket by Nanette Lepore -- the cargo pockets give it a modern equestrian feel, plus the rust color is totally in this season! For a basic black coat that's anything but boring, this long Milly Phoebe Coat has that military inspiration that took over the Fashion Week runways! If you can pull them off, pegged pants are coming back, and these BDG trousers can be dressed up or down for almost any occasion. And would you ever expect tweed to be appropriate for a night out? Check out this sequin and tweed mini skirt from J. Crew -- it's the perfect mix of naughty and nice!
