All you need is a touch of tweed

Make sure you're at the front of the fashion pack with the must-have style for autumn.

That perennial favourite tweed is back again this season, and at the international shows we saw it given a twist. At Burberry, Ralph Lauren and MaxMara the heritage look took centre stage - while at Chanel, Lagerfeld also created a modern take on the classic jacket originally made chic by Coco.

This season tweed is the fabric of choice – and the look is far from dowdy. From bright reds and pinks through to soft lemons and dusky peaches, tweed has been given a dramatic new lease of life with an injection of colour.

For those on a budget, all the best tweeds are available on the high street. Next and Oasis have ultra-chic nippy suits, while M&S have a great selection of boxy tweed jackets , 60’s inspired dresses and fur trimed overcoats. Remember girls, the look is prim and proper.

So, move over Miss Marple.
