YSM Tweed Jacket inspired by COCO CHANEL❤️
by Madison McDuffie on Nov 22, 2021
In the 1920s, Gabrielle Chanel’s introduction of the now-iconic TWEED jacket started a fashion revolution.
It may come as a surprise to know that the iconic jacket was initially inspired by a menswear design. After borrowing sportswear from her lover, the Duke of Westminster, Chanel realized menswear’s ease and comfort. With this in mind, Chanel turned her attention to a tweed fabric, which at the time was used only in menswear. The iconic jacket was born from the desire to liberate women from the restrictive sartorial norms of wearing corsets.
Chanel sought to dress women "in suits that make them feel at ease," she once said, "but that still emphasize femininity." These jackets do just that! It intended for women to look bold and powerful, hence the men’s style tailoring, yet feminine with the beautiful tweed fabric and big chic buttons.
Chanel’s classic tweed jacket ranks highly on the wish lists of fashion’s elite. Worn by some of the most influential women of all time, this style is classic.
The YSM tweed jacket is inspired by the iconic CHANEL tweed jacket and is exclusive to Yes She May. Feel beautiful, sophisticated, and influential in the YSM Tweed Jackets.

Tweed is very supple because of its diagonal broken twill and loose texture. It is lighter than broadcloth, and it holds shape while hugging the body.
