Save or splurge: tweed jacket

save or splurge comment

Perhaps you’ve heard of the French designer Coco Chanel? Not only sharing with the world iconic purse designs, she also popularized the collarless tweed jacket starting in 1954.


The jacket is a good alternative to a sweater or blazer for additional warmth without being too bulky. It is a piece, when added to an existing outfit, can have an uptown or downtown feel. If you’re on the lookout for an updated look on the tweed jacket, consider looking for one that is well-tailored to your frame and has a crop cut.

Save: LOFT textured stripe open jacket
Splurge: Alice & Olivia Kidman open front box jacket

Here are two looks you could create depending on the occasion:

Downtown look for a tweed jacket @loft |

Look 1: consider wearing this out during the weekend lunch outing. Get that hip feel by draping it over a basic tee, boyfriend jeans, a tassel necklace, a hint of pink with a crossbody, and some cute espadrille sandals.

Professional look for a tweed jacket @alice_olivia |

Look 2: stand out during a business meeting – this could work as a great alternative to the matchy suit ensemble. Pair it with a crisp white button-down blouse and a traditional black pencil skirt. Dress it up with accessories: a bold cuff bracelet and drop earrings, an envelope clutch, and bright red pumps. It still screams professional yet distinguishes you from others.

This is what I would consider an investment piece: it’s a look that has transcended the years and has not fallen out of style. Who makes your favorite tweed jacket?

I’ve been on a pink color trend lately. Surprisingly, it’s not even my favorite color! I have a fair number of pink-hued items and the majority seem to fall in the fuschia spectrum. It’s a bold color that can run an outfit if not paired properly. I’ve had good outcomes with laying it with greys and blacks. How do you pair your pink?

P.S. Have you entered the giveaway yet? Only 1 day left!
