Tweed + Stripes

I don’t usually do cropped jackets because I don’t think the boxy cut or cut-off length is flattering on me. But I loved this tweed pattern, and I don’t think it’s too boxy so I went for it. I added a top with longer sleeves and torso so I wouldn’t visually appear so cut off. I kept my accessories lady-like, but the relaxed fit jeans and casual striped cotton turtleneck keep the outfit from being too stuffy. The oatmeal color in both the turtleneck and the jacket pull the look together.

How do you wear tweed?

  6. Oh I love that jacket! I tried it on when it was on major sale in-store and it didn’t fit 😦 So pretty though!
