Good Question: I Need Tweed!
May 11, 2007
From A SheFinds Reader: I am desperately looking for just the right suit for the Jewish New Year coming up. I have some fabulous classic suits in my closet, but I really need change!!! I am looking for something classic (possibly tweed, brown tones), sheik and elegant. I saw a couple of stunning pieces on Neiman’s online – but to the tune of $700 – not for me. I have to buy for the kids, too. So where can I find stuff online?
The Answer: Brown tones, tweed. Got it. But chic and elegant are definitely open for interpretation. Luckily, there are lots of options out there to “suit” virtually any taste. For example, you can always rely on Bloomies for stunning outfits. This Bird’s Eye Tweed Faux Fur Collar Jacket & Flippy Skirt suit is classically styled, while the fur collar adds some va va voom! It’s available only at Bloomingdales. If simple is your preferred style, this three-piece pant suit from Donna Karan is for you. Who says suits have to be skirt suits? This one is a blend of linen, rayon, silk and wool, and comes with a sleeveless shell. Lastly, Trina Turk brings a Kathryn Hepburnesque look to a cocoa-toned Cherry Jacket and Crop Cuff Pants.
