A Casual Way to Wear a Tweed Jacket

Hi there, friends! I’m continuing with my style series on 3 Ways to Wear a Tweed Jacket this spring, and this time I’ve got a more casual way to wear a tweed jacket.

On Monday, I styled this jacket with a little black dress for a conservative work wear look. Here’s a little flashback for you.

You can read that post in its entirety HERE, if you missed it.

This time I wanted to go for an outfit more along the lines of what I typically wear, so I decided to take it the other direction and wear this jacket with jeans and a t-shirt.

There’s lots of juxtaposition going on here, which is what makes it fun. This is a great look for a lunch with friends or other occasions when you want to a smart-casual outfit.

Here’s a close-up view of the jacket, paired with a white tee. It’s such a flattering cut, and the black trim really pops.

This t-shirt is old and mostly sold out, but I’m currently working on a HUGE white t-shirt review & comparison post, so stay tuned for that!

My casual way to wear a tweed jacket features a pair of AG Farrah high waist ankle skinny jeans in a nice mid-indigo wash with a lived-in look and feel.

These jeans have a 10 1/2″ front rise and a 28″ inseam, so on me that is right at ankle-length.

I think the chewed hem is a fun detail and adds interest, but if you want to keep the look clean and classic, you could go with jeans with a traditional sewn hem.

I felt like this outfit needed something fun and unexpected, so I threw on these bright pink flats, and I love how they complete the look.

The bright color is a nice change from the neutral shoes that have ruled the day for so long.

Pointy toe flats are a hot shoe trend this spring, and these definitely fit that description! They’re quite comfortable too, and I love the notched topline.

Those little points of interest are what take a bland outfit and make it shine.

I can definitely see myself wearing this smart-casual look out and about when the weather warms up a bit. I suppose I could even wear it now and throw a coat on top.

In fact, I’m going to a musical this weekend at a local playhouse, and I might do exactly that!
