Pin the blame on the late Karl Lagerfeld's final few Chanel collections why we're positively obsessed with prim little tweed suits, pearl strands, and precious gilt buttons. TBH, they make the recipe for a look that'll never really age badly—just change the shoulder silhouettes, skirt lengths, and accessories each season to adapt to fashion's token fickle winds. They looked good on Jackie O. in the '60s, turned beachwear glam in the '90s, and helped reintroduce demure dressing in 2019!
If you're not quite ready to don a full-on suit yet, start easy with a jacket that'll happily give your usual blazer a much-needed break. Here, 13 picks to peruse and pair with smart trousers on Monday, then jeans and a chunky chain belt come Saturday.
