Tweed Jackets | The Old-School Chic

Styling Tweed Jacket Fashion BlogSafe to say tweed still had a pretty bad rep up until recently, but it was totally unwarranted.  Even with Chanel suits pinging to mind as soon as the word 'chic' is mentioned, the material still seemed to throw us back with negative connotations.  But then tweed jackets and mini skirts appeared everywhere (with definite Clueless vibes) - and I fell in love.  Seriously.  I'm now 100% converted to tweed jackets and nagging everyone to give one a go, because there's just something feminine and powerful about them.  Plus, they seem to work well with every occasion.  Meeting a friend?  Throw one over a knitted midi dress. Scheduled a meeting?  No problem, pair with a pussybow shirt and jeans.  Getting ready for a date?  Drape over your shoulders, the focus is on the tight-fitting velvet underneath.  Heading to the gym?  Fine, maybe not every occasion...

How to Look Chic in a Tweed Jacket in Winter
Styling literally feels as though it's become ten times more interesting now that the cold weather has arrived.  Layering, layering and more layering.  Love it.  My saved tab on Instagram has become increasingly chaotic, with so many gorgeous minimalist, layered looks appearing left, right and centre.  For this look, I've kept to my usual monochromatic styling, to let the burgundy tweed pop.  Although, it turns out it's having to compete with the gorgeous block-heels on these Elana boots from Dolcis!  Damn, I love a good pair of over-the-knee boots...

  1. Love the outfit as always and I definitely remember a time when Tweed was considered as the grandma style jacket, I have to say I've always liked it a lot, but I'm still glad it is coming back, it means that I can wear some without the odd looks!

  46. I think tweed will always be a classic! And just recently had to have a bit of a clearout as I'd accumulated far too many tweed jackets, haha! :) I only have a couple now, this is a good reminder to myself to get them out for a wear again! :) You look beautiful in yours, I love pairing them with denim.


    Hope you had a great weekend :) We went to a theme park, a nice way to relax after a stressful sick-filled week!

  65. There's something elegant about a tweed jacket. I personally think it has to stay, it elevates ones look, makes jeans suddenly become less casual. I love your burgundy jacket and the boots together, the colour matching is clever and pretty.

  67. Um this is literally one of my favourite outfits on you ever, you look so good! It's funny you mentioned Clueless as well because I was watching that the other day and I actually found it shocking how much of the clothes in that movie were things I'd pretty much seen available now in places like Topshop!

  71. This tweet jacket suits you beautifully Gabrielle, you look so chic in these photographs and as always you've styled up your look so perfectly.

    The red heel of the boots match the warmth of the colours in the jacket very nicely, and your sunnies add such a wonderful finishing touch.

    Thanks for sharing and wishing you a Happy Friday!
