With a modern spin on a British classic, timeless tweed is hot on the radar for Spring/Summer '14. No longer just an autumnal style, this season tweed has been given a fresh update and a polished, lady-like feel with softer, lightweight textures spun with soft metallics. I pulled together my must-have candy-colored tweed pieces for four sophisticated spring looks below. So go ahead and indulge your sweet tooth- just be sure to avoid looking too matchy-matchy by only wearing one tweed piece at a time.
Tweed is the perfect way of incorporating texture into your look; don’t be afraid to mix and match for a fun, fresh new take. Why not team a multi-colored tweed skirt with a soft and striking cashmere v-neck for eye-catching colorblocking? Complete the outfit with an injection of edgy appeal; I have my eye on the studded magenta Valentino bag.
Dress to impress in a frock with a contemporary twist. Take power dressing to a whole new level in a pastel tweed sheath dress with a white lace hem. Delicate lace adds feminine polish, while the structured silhouette hugs your shape in all the right places.

No wardrobe is complete without a tailored tweed jacket. Transforming any look, simply throw over your little black dress for power 9-5 dressing or even over your trusty skinny jeans and white t-shirt for polished off duty style. Don’t forget to accessorize with a pair of snakeskin pumps and your hottest "it" bag.
With pastel shades topping this season’s most sought after hues, this ice pink tweed shell top will have you ‘spring ready’ in a snap. Fresh and feminine, the embellished neckline adds a contemporary twist. Pair with tailored trousers and gold accented accessories for a round-the-clock chic.
