13 Genuinely Cool Tweed Finds To Add Some Class To Your Closet

UPDATE: This story was originally published on September 28.
By the time October rolls around, we're completely feelin' fall — pumpkin scones in the oven, mini gourds on display, ankle boots in heavy rotation. But our love affair with fall really starts with the luxe fabrics. All those cozy knits, supple leathers, buttery suedes, and textured tweeds that set the scene for steaming cups of tea and chic orchard outings — we can't get enough.
Now, we're guessing "tweed" may conjure up some less-than-fashion-forward images — maybe a stuffy grandparent, a scratchy uniform blazer, or an Englishman on his way to the hunt. But, in the right form and fit, the centuries-old fabric looks genuinely fresh for fall '12. We vetted the web for modern takes on the old-school staple, so you can accessorize in style without looking antiquated. (Save that for your Downton Abbey-inspired Halloween costume.)
