I’ve always loved it. Tweed! Especially tweed pencil skirts and jackets. I can still remember that as a 10 year old girl I had a very nice pair of green tweed trousers. My mother had made it because she made most of the clothes for my sister and myself. I loved those trousers. All those other little colors that were in the tweed seemed fascinating to me. Later as my love for England grew, that is from the age of fourteen, I associated tweed with the English countryside and of course I couldn’t help but love it.
Does only Zara have tweed pencil skirts?
Why then can I hardly ever find anything tweed? I’ve never seen anything beautiful tweed on second-hand sites and you can’t find much of it online either. So when I saw this tweed pencil skirt I had to have it of course, you do understand that, right? By the way, this is the second tweed pencil skirt I found at Zara’s. Although of course it is a completely different tweed than my favorite English country tweed.
When I’m back in England I’ll be really searching for a good tweed jacket there. And that will happen! Gerben and I have said to each other that whatever happens, we are going to England this year. I even received an email from the owners of the B&B we have been going to in Rye in recent years. But until then, I’ll stick with the more commercial tweed. Also good because I really like this skirt. Those buttons too! What a wonderful detail.
Of course I style my tweed pencil skirt with black.
I don’t think this pencil tweed skirt can be styled with anything other than black. But that’s really my personal opinion because I do understand that every color fits well with this pencil skirt. But for me it’s only black. (well perhaps a white tee and white sneakers will do the trick too) So that the skirt and also the buttons properly are in the spotlight. And of course I just love a black outfit. I also had to buy a size bigger for this skirt. Well, we are used to that from Zara by now.
I’m curious if you like tweed because I don’t see it much on Instagram and other bloggers either. Do you ever wear it?
My favorite of last week is: Jacqui of Mummabstylish
