A modern take on the classic tweed jacket

Modern tweed jackets, Spring 2022. Chanel-inspired jackets for women.

The bouclé tweed jacket made popular by Coco Chanel has seen many iterations over the decades, but has retained its iconic status. A real Chanel jacket can be an exquisite piece (oh, that little chain sewn into the hem!), but is priced well beyond most budgets. Fortunately for those who adore this look, there are “inspired by” versions in a range of prices.

This post was originally published at an earlier date and has since been updated. I’ve left prior comments in place.

I’ve always had a soft spot for these jackets, but find they can skew a bit matronly if you’re not careful. My take: don’t try for the Chanel runway look circa 1987; keep it simple, wear as part of a casual outfit, and be selective with accessories.
