Blaze a trail; Fashionista; By Emma Watson; Fashion has given a nod to Mother Nature with tweed in earthy tones.

Byline: Emma Watson

From the runways to the red carpets, you'll find a whole range of earthy, autumnal colours available, along with Chanel–esque tweeds in muted tones that are finished with some fun sparkle through the fabrics.

Any tweed can bring an air of elegance to an outfit, whether it is adorning a coat or patched on a bag.

Elie Saab has created his own modern twist on this sophisticated trend – and in doing so has kept the peplum alive – with structured dresses complemented with panels of tweed.

Chanel's signature thick–woven tweed was transformed into casual, loose–fit suits, topped with woollen beanie hats.

Giorgio Armani created the modern androgynous women – with masculine tailoring in tweed – and teamed with bold, powerful colours that clash to complete the look.

The City star Olivia Palermo is rocking a dark brown, fitted tweed blazer with puffed out waist pockets and black leather shoulder panels by Burberry.

She has accentuated her waist by adding a two–tone, contrasting belt over the blazer, and in keeping with the autumnal colours, teamed the look with a tan clutch bag to complete the outfit.

Lea Michele is wearing a black and white tweed skirt and blazer combo by Stella & Jamie, oozing grown up glamour. She has complemented the white in the tweed with a white vest top and finished the look with a pair of killer red ankle strap heels.
