No autumn wardrobe is complete without a tweed coat. It is an emblem of everyday glamour. Highly adaptable, undeniably elegant, one of the most traditional and rustic of fabrics that always looks modern. Chanel has been doing it for decades. In mannish shapes or slim lines, I love how it works with everything, from the white shirt or turtlenecks to the bohemian floral dress. And Ralph Lauren is another name that comes into my mind.
