A Touch of Tweed

Blouse: Target (similar) / Leggings: H&M (similar from Express) / Jacket: c/o Sheinside / Bag: Balenciaga / Boots: c/o Cougar



I’ve been a fan of tweed jackets for several years now,  and have gradually collected quite a few – including pieces in cream, pink and navy blue. I prefer my tweed jackets to have a slightly shrunken/cropped fit – so that they add some structure to my outfit without dominating the whole look.

From L-R: Jackets c/o Sheinside /c/o Sheinside / WHBM (similar from WHBM) / Forever21 (similar from F21); Bags: Balenciaga / Balenciaga / Louis Vuitton / Pashli

My favorite thing about tweed jackets? They look best paired with jeans and a t-shirt/blouse – such an easy and comfortable option!

Do you like wearing tweed jackets? Which of these is your favorite? For me, it’s a tie between the navy and pink!

      Ha ha – yes the collection sort of crept up on me – but I have no regrets because I love them all LOL 😉

      Thanks Skylette – I've always loved the look of tweed but never thought it would suit me – jackets tend to look boxy on me – but as long as I get shrunken fit tweed jackets, I'm happy 🙂

    You have such beautiful options! I really love each and every one. I need a new tweed jacket, as i got rid of my old ones due to them not fitting anymore. I love how classic they look!

      Thanks Noelle! I'm sure you'll find some cute new options – especially if you check WHBM…they have such cute options (and great sales too!)

      Thanks! I love that they have a faux leather panel down the front, but the rest is jersey material – so it's comfy to wear!

    I actually don't own any tweed jackets but I love the ones you pictured above. My favorite is the navy! So cute on you and gives the outfit a great dressy look

      Thanks Julie – I love how easily it dresses up an outfit – I can't wait to try it with jeans and heels when the weather gets warmer!

    Nice collection of tweet jackets you have! I love tweet (Chanel-ish) jackets but only on others. I can't seems to pull them off. Too stiff and pretentious on me. I'm stylish enough I guess 😉 Love your Bal bags too!

      Yes – Chanel tweed jackets are my ultimate outfit inspiration – until recently, I didn't think tweed jackets suited me (a lot of the ones I tried on looked too bulky on me) – I'm so happy I found ones that I like 🙂

    I have one that's almost identical to your cream one from F21 so I'd have to say that's my favourite. I like how you wear your tweeds that are shrunken, they fit you perfectly and you've styled them in a very contemporary way. I love the main picture with the leather leggings. You look great in all of the photos
