Women's Tweed Coats and Jackets
Women's tweed coats and jackets are both stylish and practical making them a wardrobe essential for the fashion-conscious lady. Offering a timeless design, tweed outerwear can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and are therefore extremely versatile.
Single-breasted tweed jackets are as flattering as they are feminine with both sides of the garment buttoning together at the centre of the torso - usually with a single fastening. Jackets of this kind look classy and sophisticated when teamed with formal attire. They can also be worn with more relaxed attire if the dress code is smart casual or if you simply want to achieve an off-duty look with a stylish twist.
Single-breasted jackets made from the finest tweed come in a variety of different colours, patterns and sizes. While some of the jackets feature additional details such as buttoned pockets with contrasting trim, others have a detachable fur collar which adds an instant dash of vintage glamour to any outfit.
Unlike single-breasted blazers which have one row of buttons and typically one fastening, double breasted blazers overlap at the front and have two rows of buttons. Double-breasted blazers offer a snug fit and offer a more conservative look that's ideal for a professional environment.
Both single and double-breasted blazers vary significantly in length with waist length styles proving particularly common as they flatter most body shapes and help to pinch in the waist. Hip-length blazers are perhaps more traditional in style, mimicking the length of a typical suit jacket. Longer blazers are designed to cover women's hips completely and offer increased warmth and protection from the elements. They are particularly useful for a nippy, windy day.
Country fashion coats
Tweed coats and jackets are often associated with country life and are commonly worn for popular rural activities such as horse riding competitions and shows. As tweed is a strong, durable material that locks in heat and keeps out the cold, jackets made from this material are perfect for outdoor activities such as mucking out stables, dog walking and hiking.
Many fashionable, outdoor tweed coats are longer in length and have a zip/popper fastening for optimum protection. Many have large pockets with exquisite gold popper detailing with select garments also offering a comfortable suede collar which adds to the style of the overall design. Cuff detailing is usually present with high-quality coat linings also having some kind of pattern. Jackets come in many different colours with black, grey, green and blue being particularly popular. Sizes vary from garment to garment.
