The need for tweed; SHOPPING.

Byline: AMBER GRAAFLAND and DIDI DANSO

I don't need to tell you that tweed jackets are the epitome of chic. Coco Chanel built a fashion empire around them and her signature style endures today.

And the secret is down to the fact that they really are timeless and you can wear them in so many different ways. Just take a look at Dutch model Lara Stone and the effortlessly stylish movie director Sofia Coppola.

They both look great, despite having styled their jackets in completely different ways.

It's also a style that suits women of all ages. Just check out Helen Mirren. Far from going down the traditional tweed jacket and pearls look she was rocking a tweed biker style at the L'Oreal fashion show in Paris on Sunday. With jeans. She really is one inspirational 72-year-old.

Sofia Coppola So you see, a tweed jacket is the ultimate hero piece that you will wear season after season. I think Coco would have approved.
