Yaaaay! One of our favourite fashion trends is definitely back!!! Tweed shorts (and blazers) will be fashionable again this season, and we are (literally!) dying to get our own Chanel-alike suit!

You may think this fabric is just meant to be worn during the winter season, but it is actually perfect for summer as it will be printed in shorts and summery skirt-suits.

Are you a fashion addict? Then, you probably know everything about the queen of Haute Couture, Coco Chanel. As you know, she left us some of the most iconic pieces of the fashion industry: the little black dress, the 2.55 bag, the pearls´necklace, and, of course, the tweed suit!

To create the original tweed suit, Chanel took inspiration from the Scottish traditional skirts (known as Kilts). This suit became one of the Maison Chanel best-sellers during the 20s and ideal outfit for women who wanted to dress elegant and sophisticated!

Today, the tweed suit still means elegance, and contemporary designers and firms have redesigned the classic Chanel suit in a more millennial style: with mini shorts and small blazers usually worn unbuttoned!

Actually, one of our favourite millennial fashionistas was the first ones in making us fall in love (again) with this trend. During last Valentine´s day, Kendall Jenner chose to wear a Chanel skirt suit in red tones, combined with a white crop top and a belly chain layered underneath. This look was just the perfect example of the office into a date-night outfit!

Want to showcase this trend but don´t know how? Here, all you need to know:

To the Office all you need to complete your tweed suit is a pair of laced-up ballerinas. Use a pair of high heels if the occasion is a date or a party night-out, and to hang out with your friends during the day lace up your coolest sneakers and add a backpack! Trust us: there is no way these outfit ideas won´t work!

Tweed shorts look for the office

To find the perfect look to survive the office hours during the summer is quite a difficult task! However, tweed shorts(skirt)-suit are just the perfect option to look smart, elegant and trendy at the same time. For the shoes, do exactly what Coco Chanel would have done: chose a comfy and feminine pair of ballerinas!
