SheFinds September Issue Spotlight: RealSimple's New Tweed

The Trend: RealSimple's new spin on tweed.

They Say: "There was a time… when tweed's reputation was as musty as the stacks section. But that era is long gone."

How to Wear It: Put stodgy professors and leather-patched elbows out of your mind. This fall's tweeds are strictly feminine, taking shape in lovely dresses, skirts and cardigans that are anything but stuffy. Look for precisely tailored pieces to pair with crisp, classic blouses, or try a new twist on tweed and opt for unique colors (Anthropologie's midnight herringbone trousers ($168) are a great combo of the two looks).

Our Picks: Splurge on Dior's tweed kimono dress ($3,240 @ eLuxury) for the most luxe gray garment you may ever own. Try Bebe's classic wide-legged tweed trousers ($129) or Tocca's ultra-girly ruffled wrap skirt ($135 @ Bluefly.com) if you want gorgeous pieces you can wear for years.

For a more edgy tweed, Diane von Furstenberg's Rosario dress ($365 @ Barneys New York) in feisty turquoise is a new take on an old standard, and Circa Joan & David's 'Alexia 2' Mary Jane Pumps ($99 @ Nordstrom) have a smart-is-sexy vibe about them. If you're looking for something that goes with everything from jeans to skirts, Sutton Studio's Tweed 2-Button Jacket ($200 @ Bloomingdales) and Stella McCartney's Bell Bottom Tweed Sweater ($615 @ Intermix) are two good bang-for-your-buck bets.
