Celebrities Wearing Tweed Fall 2011

Trendspotting: The Need For Tweed

If you can't shake tweed's connotations of skirt suits and ladies who lunch, take a look at Hailee Steinfeld, Olivia Wilde, and Chloe Moretz in these trend-driven tweed looks. Fall's call to layer up works perfectly with rich, woven tweed textiles that act more as accent pieces than outfit basics. The tone's a little bookish the way Hailee outfits it in deep berry tones and a complementary white button-down while Olivia's version shows off its modern ladylike appeal on a chic coat. Still, our favorite might be Chloe's incarnation with a buckled miniskirt and neoprene-textured topper — this girl has "next style star" written all over her. The trend is strong on the runway, too, from the masterful, timeless tweeds at Chanel to the mixed-material tweeds at Alexander Wang and the brightly hued versions at Thakoon.
