If they’re good enough for the cast of the Gossip Girl reboot, they’re good enough for us. These are a few of our favourites. 

As we make the transition from the balmy months of summer to the cooler climes of winter, there are a few wardrobe changes we fashion lovers must make.

Our summer sandals are relegated to the backs of our wardrobes in favour of chunky stomper boots, our thin cardigans are swapped out for swaddling sweaters and the patterns of our dresses go from ditsy florals to heritage prints. And none come more heritage than tweed which, if a clutch of e-tailers’ autumn buys are anything to go by, looks set to have its status elevated from ladies-who-lunch-attire to fabulous, fashion-forward devotee.

It’s perhaps no surprise that tweed is experiencing a comeback, given the recent revival of Gossip Girl, whose cast have been spotted in all manner of tweed and tartan showstoppers. But it’s the tweed dress that we’re most interested in. 

To elevate a tweed mini from drab to fab, pair it with chunky white trainers and juxtapose it with a vintage-feel varsity jacket: the fashion equivalent of two worlds colliding. The tweed 2.0 dress deserves to be riffed on; don’t take it too seriously, and your look will be just how the Copenhagen fashion set have interpreted the trend: fun and carefree. These are a few of the tweed dresses we’ve got our eyes on at the moment.
