How to Take Your Winter Tweeds into Spring And Summer
Just because the weather is slowly getting warmer doesn't mean your favorite winter tweed pieces are becoming useless. In fact, the secret to a perfectly funtioning wardrobe is the ability to wear a lot of your clothes through all seasons. Especially, in spring when the weather and temperature are prone to quick changes you will find that tweed works perfectly through both sunshine and rain. But of course, you will look exceptionally smart as well!
Here is how I plan on wearing my winter tweeds in spring and summer:
Crochet lace is certainly not only for high summer but more than suitable for those warmer, tender spring days when pared with a vintage tartan skirt. Although and with any luck, it will take another month before the temperature is truly appropriate here in Finland for such airy top halfs. Until then, I can only continue posing indoors.

It is no secret that I am a deeply devoted lover of knitwear be it winter or spring which is why I can hardly think of a more delightful outfit than tweed trousers styled with a classic cotton cable knit top. And since it is cheerful springtime why not to add some larger than life earrings and a leopard print pillbox hat!

I do not live by many fashion rules but this one I will always remind myself of: never underestimate a power of a fabulous blouse since it is the quickest route to a chic and sophisticated outfit. With numerous wow factors such as bows, ruffles, pleats and prinst, a fabulous blouse makes even dense wool tweed spring appropriate. I decieded to wear mine with tweed trousers and a matching waistcoat.

Is it possible for an elegant creamy white dress to become even more elegant? Only when wearing a tweed blazer on top and a layer of beautiful lipstick on your lips. And if you manage to squeeze in a couple of gold jewelry pieces you are practically the very picture of elegance. Trust me on this!
