The Tweed Jacket Is Back: How to Pull Off the ’90s Fashion Favorite Right Now

Look back into at any ’90s It Girl’s wardrobe and you’ll find one of these: a classic tweed blazer.

Tweed jackets were first popularized by Coco Chanel at the turn on the 20th century, but it wasn’t until the ’90s that the once prim-and-proper outerwear became cool and youthful. It all started in spring 1994, when Karl Lagerfeld sent out a spring collection of sexy, fun, and youthful tweed suits, crop tops and bralettes on supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Nadja Aurmann, and Cindy Crawford. After that, everyone wanted a tweed jacket in their style arsenals to wear with jeans and flats.
