Today's Everyday Fashion: Tweed Trousers






































Don't you love it when you hold onto something and it winds up coming in handy? I bought these tweed trousers more than 5 years ago, and I immediately got them out of "storage" (our guest room) when I saw this picture of Charlize Theron on FabSugar.com. Her pants are a bit more modern with a skinny leg and some pleating, but I decided to re-create the look with a navy silk shirt and black boyfriend blazer. Work appropriate and comfy, I love!

Occasion: Work
Black blazer: Express
Blue silk shirt: Banana Republic, $50
Pants: American Eagle
Earrings: Urban Outfitters, $5
Watch: Fossil
Boots: Forever 21, $33

  7. Love the outfit. what do you think about wearing black shoes/boots instead of grey in it?

  8. Thanks everyone! :-)

    Anonymous, black boots could definitely work with this outfit. I went with a taupe color because it matched what Charlize was wearing - and it elongates your legs when you wear a similar color shoe as your pants!

  9. Love your recreation. Do you know who designs Charlize's pants? They are amazing.

  10. Tweed trousers are the best! They must have been all the rage about 5 years back because that's when I picked mine up, too. Now I only wish I could find more like them in stores (I even posted a love letter about my tweed trousers last night: http://the-new-professional.blogspot.com). Our pants are sort of similar. I like the way you've styled them!

  14. I love this look! This is definitely something I would wear! I have a black boyfriend blazer from Target that I have to force myself not to wear everyday! You just gave me an excuse to wear it more (:

    Anonymous, sorry I'm not sure who designs Charlize's pants. ASOS has tons of great cropped trousers with pleats though, I would check out their website for a look-alike pair.

    Kerri, details on my measurements are under the "Q&A with J" section, but I'm 5'7" and I'm a size 2.

  16. I actually like your outfit twice as much as hers. Charlize's pants are cute in a celebrity way, but I would never wear them. I would totally wear the outfit that you have on though. It's great!
