Happy Monday, friends! Today I’m wrapping up my style series on 3 Ways to Wear a Tweed Jacket with a classy tweed jacket outfit for date night or business casual events.
For those just tuning in, this jacket has the structure of a blazer with the comfort of a cardigan, and I love the classic Jackie O vibes.
It has a flattering tailored fit and a one-button closure. I also appreciate that the shoulders aren’t super padded, and the sleeves are nice and long. All of these features help keep this jacket from looking too masculine, which is a risk with blazers.
Also, the black trim and faux flap pockets are nice details.
In the past two posts, I had a few questions about buttoning this jacket. It does button comfortably, but I think it looks more feminine and relaxed to leave a blazer unbuttoned. That said, you can definitely button it if that’s your preference.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures that way, but I will try to take a mirror selfie at some point and share that… maybe in this Friday’s try-on haul.
This jacket runs true to size. For reference, I have the small.
My mixed jersey tank is also from Ann Taylor, and I love how it pairs with this jacket. The rounded neck is the perfect complement to the structure of the jacket (and v-neck, should you decide to button it.)
I always think a top like this looks more feminine with a jacket than a button-up blouse, but you could certainly wear one of those too.
In that case, I recommend leaving the top few buttons unbuttoned to your comfort level. It’s slimming and elongating to the neck to show some skin in this area — especially if you have a larger chest.
My earrings and necklace are both Kendra Scott pieces. She makes higher end costume jewelry, which always wears well and lasts a long time.
I wore black skinny jeans with this outfit because I was styling it for more of a date night look, but this could also work for a business casual dress code, and I might even wear it to church!
It all depends on the occasion and your personal style, but this is a versatile outfit that can easily be tweaked for a variety of situations.
