Sumptuous tweeds and bouclés are difficult to resist. If you don’t feel like venturing into constructing a classic jacket-either tailored or quilted-try making a quick-to-sew pullover top that’s lined with silk. Think of it as a dressy T-shirt or sweatshirt, and pair it with velvet or faux-leather trousers or jeans, or toss it on over a body-skimming knit dress. The fabric will be the star of the outfit, and you’ll be comfortable and chic.
