Wednesday's Look for Less: Tweed Tee

Happy Look for Less day! It's time for your midweek budget blender courtesy of moi. Since this fall is ALL about texture, it's only appropriate that today's focus reflect on a classic fall fabric, tweed. But this cut is not your grandma's skirt suit. The classic tee in tweed is the new, chic way to wear it. 

But can you tell which top costs more? The top on the right comes courtesy of my fall 2012 favorite Tibi. And while it might be on sale right now (at Net-A-Porter so get it while it's hot!), it still costs a good bit more than its counterpart on the left. In fact, it costs nearly $100 more. The Aryn K. top on the left rings up at just $70. Cha-ching!

It's interesting that both Net-A-Porter and Piperlime chose to show this style top with batik and paisley patterned bottoms. If I owned a tweed topper, I'd actually keep up the play on texture with velvet or waxed denim skinnies and a classic flat. It's a bit more 21st century Jackie O. and less Kate offense, K. 

So, in case holiday shopping has just about wiped you out, you still have a great, budget-friendly option for that upcoming party. Alternatively, if Santa has asked you to put a little splurge on your list, then this Tibi top has timeless- and chic and SALE- written all over it. 


  1. I actually thought the one on the left was the expensive version! I like it better.

    1. Yay! Don't you love it when that happens? I like that one better too.


Thanks for stopping by Savoir-Flair. I look forward to reading your comments!
