- Its frayed pastel tweed material and silver hardware it echoes classic Chanel
- Fashion site Who What Wear reported lilac tweed is in trend for coming seasons
- Fashion influencers were spotted wearing the lilac tweed dress version of skirt
Holly Willoughby sent her army of fashion followers wild when she wore a lilac tweed skirt from Zara on ITV’s This Morning this week.
The flirty frock is a high street bargain at just £49.99, and with its tweed fabric, frayed edges, silver hardware buttons and pretty pastel hue, it screams classic Chanel.
However skirts from the French luxury house cost upward of £4,000, making this a sartorial steal for fashion lovers.
Lorraine Kelly was first seen wearing the skirt in March, and like Holly, she teamed it with a crew-neck fitted sweater.

And the skirt, which has already sold out in sizes M and L since Holly wore it just two days ago, has sparked a frenzy for all things tweed.
The classic trend appears to be back in fashion, according to fashion site Who What Wear, who reported that pastel – in particular lilac tweed is all the rage this season, with influencers across Instagram spotted wearing the dress version of the skirt.
The site’s New York fashion editor Lauren Eggertsen said: ‘When I first saw this dress in the Zara store here in NYC, I was immediately drawn to it. I loved the colour, the texture, and of course, the buttons.
‘I think the dress is perfect for weddings, summertime events, and even a vacation cocktail moment’.

Chanel displayed its iconic look with head-to-toe tweed on the catwalk during the late Karl Lagerfield’s final show in March, while Marc Jacobs opted for houndstooth tweed ensembles with statement sleeves.
Elsewhere Prada clashed orange tweed with chunky knits, making tweed a trend which will carry through the upcoming seasons.
