With the Big Apple Tweed Fall Ride just around the corner, you may still be pondering what manner of tweed or tweed-inspired outfit to don for the magnificent day. Well, ponder no more! The great news is that the Fall season is perfect for Tweed Ride fashion as cooler temperatures call for layering and heavier fabrics such as actual tweed or tweed patterns.
For starters, we recommend building your outfit around one basic tweed or tweed-ish item such as a skirt, jacket or a pair of pants. You can then build on any of these items by adding a tailored shirt, feminine top, vest, jacket or cardigan. For us, the best part of dressing up for Tweed Rides are the accessories. This is where your own personal touch really gets to shine through. Add a colorful hat, brooch, feather, gloves, a floral pin, patterned socks/tights, a pocket watch or a fur or faux fur stole and you’re all of a sudden transported back to a bygone era full of charm and grace.
Below are a few of our favorite Tweed ride worthy ensembles to inspire you for the upcoming ride. Remember, many of these items can be found at your local thrift or vintage shop or right in your closet!
