Jennifer Garner Does Tweed Right -- And So Can You!

Jennifer GarnerJennifer Garner is only the latest in a series of stars stepping out in tweed over the last couple of weeks.

Tweed is one of the hottest trends of the fall/winter season, and if you're lucky, you already have a few pieces in your closet.

I salvaged a few Chanel-style tweed jackets from my mom's closet a few years ago and I'll be wearing them with jeans as soon as the weather gets cooler. I also still have a few tweed skirts from my newsroom days that will come in handy this upcoming season.

Tweed pieces are great investments because the look is always classic, and I've found that my tweed keeps returning to the fashion forefront in various incarnations every couple of years or so.

Want to find some affordable tweed to call your own?

Keep tweeding!
