Today's Everyday Fashion: Tweed

To pin without the inspiration photo, go here

Be still my tweed-loving heart. This outfit makes me want to drink hot cider and roll around in a pile of leaves. The minute I tried on this blazer at H&M I knew it had to be mine. It's tweed and yet it is super-soft, it has elbow patches and cute buttons; I'm in love. Will you be wearing the tweed trend this fall? Which jacket below is your favorite?

  2. J, I LOVE this look as a former New Englander. However, I am now a Floridian like you, and wonder how to pull off the cuteness when it's still in the 80's down here?

  9. Love the tweed trend! My fav jacket you listed is the 3rd one from ASOS. With a small frame I have a hard time finding blazers that fit me correclty. That one looks like it would be the best fit!

  10. Thanks Beth! I'm a former New Englander too! (Boston for 4 years.) Tweed is like a furnace so this one look I'm saving for my upcoming cold weather trips, and for when temperatures finally drop in FL!

  16. I love the tweed trend! I will definitely be trying it- soon! I already have the fabric to make one. It will be similar to the one I have posted today. I might even add some faux leather sleeves. Can't decide. I love how you paired the colored jeans with it. Great look!

  19. That is super cute!!! I saw a tweed jacket with fun elbow patches last year at the Limited for like $25. I should have bought it. regretting that decision now. love the outfit. I may wear it this weekend for OU/TX, if it's not too warm.

  20. Yea! Another way to wear my favorite Banana Republic tweed blazer from about 5 years ago - never thought about wearing it with my colored denim and tall boots! Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I found a red retro Norstrom jacket in a small tight corduroy with a similar cut at my goodwill. Not the same as tweed but I am LOVING it for fall.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love this outfit! I already have the pieces to recreate this look! Can't wait for it to cool down so that I can rock in it!

  23. Great outfit. I've been eyeing the same tweed blazer at H and M for a while now. Love the jeans. Love the entire outfit. My favorite jacket is #4.

  24. Love it!  Before I saw the bottom half of your outfit I tried to guess which pants you paired it with.  I guessed burgundy!  It's a perfect match!  And I thrifted a tweed blazer a long time ago for $6 not knowing that I'd love it and wear it so much.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favorite is the one from ModCloth, but the one you're wearing from H&M is the best of the bunch! I'm guessing that's no longer available?

    ReplyDelete
  26. The H&M blazer is recent so you should still be able to find it in stores! H&M doesn't have online shopping in the U.S. so I can't link to it.

  27. wow! what a fantastic jacket! I love those boots too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ugh love tweed so much!! I posted a tweed fall jacket today that I seriously need!

  29. I went to target last night and saw those burgundy jeans! They were on 30% sale but didn't have my size. :( Also, they had these Chanel-like tweed jackets to DIE for. yep, Target is moving up in the style-world. :)

  30. I personally can't pull off tweed; even though I'm young(-ish), my womanly figure makes tweed age me :(

  31. I love that handbag and just found it at TJ Maxx. Debating about purchasing. I have 2 questions though. 1) What color is yours? It looks like a dark red but the red version I saw seemed brighter. 2) What is Ross? I've seen that mentioned in other blogs and was curious if its a local store or something. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Jen! My handbag is a dark brown - I think it is the Brandy color at the link, but not 100% sure, mine looks a little darker than the picture. Ross is just like TJ Maxx, only cheaper (!) and they are nation wide but they have less stores. Here is their locator to see if one is near you! http://www.rossstores.com/locator.aspx

  33. LOVE this fall outfit! I want a tweed blazer with elbow patches!  Those colors are so great on you! Love the boots!

  34. Do love tweed and how you're styling it too - lusting after those jeans.  I posted about dressing tweed down yesterday with a suit jacket I had (it's more black and white tweed) but think I might try it out with skinnys next thanks :)

    I literally gasped when I saw this: tweed jacket and a gray sweater underneath?  I love it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm still not sure that tweed looks great on me, but I've been thinking about getting the H&M blazer that you're wearing for a few weeks. That ASOS one is cute too!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is amazing! I absolutely love the burgundy next to the tweed--the colors look so rich. Now I really need to invest in colored skinnies.

    ReplyDelete
  38. the tweed is a very fun staple for fall. i'm currently loving the one from ASOS!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I wish I could find this jacket at my local H&M! I love it!!

    I always look for a nice tweed jacket when I'm at consignment or thrift stores, but not luck so far. Do you have a black top? I think some more contrast would do this outfit some good.

     Love what you did with the outfit! Ralph Lauren would be proud! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. That was my first thought when I saw your outfit:  I wanted to drink hot cider and walk through crunchy fall leaves!  I love the richness of all the colors!  And it got me excited because I just bought a tweed jacket at a thrift store!  It's still been too warm to wear it, but I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think this is one of the best outfits you have ever done! So cute, love everything about it!

    ReplyDelete
  49. i don't mind anything about this outfit, EXCEPT for the boots. The boots kill it - i'm sorry! maybe if they were chocolate brown and/or had a different toe shape & heel shape, i would be more inclined to find it appealing. but otherwise - it looks very nice!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This outfit is so perfect!! Love your riding boots, I have a Chinese Laundry pair as well and love them!! Also, love the purse. Would look great with any kind of
    designer handbag!! Great outfit choice.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The nearest H&M is 40 minutes from me! :( I am hoping to go in another week to scoop that blazer up! Its adorable!!

    whaat size pants did you get? How much do they stretch out after a day?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I thought they ran a size small, so I got the 5. They do really well all day long - they don't stretch out much at all!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Try giving them a call to see if they have it first - the label is the L.O.G.G. line and not all stores have it! Hope this helps. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Your H&M tweed blazer is soooo, *chic*, J. ............ I just love how you styled it, too!!   

    Another look which is also (in my opinion) really  f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s.,  too, is a tweed pencil skirt paired with a simple, jewel-tone, "duchess" satin............ (i.e., a rich, lustrous, heavyweight satin)............ blouse or top. 

    I don't have a tweed blazer or a tweed pencil skirt myself (yet!!);  but I wonder whether or not a simple satin-luster or silky-sheen blouse or top ............ in a fresh, modern, personally-flattering  *n.e.o.n.*  color!!............ would be "too much" to UPDATE............ a traditional, kind-of-on-the-"stuffy"-side, tweed pencil skirt??!!    (Haha!!)

  56. I love tweed, trend or not!

  57. Awesome blazers! I'd wear that for a job interview, or just a special date. It's a nice fit almost anything that you can think of other than formal occasions. 

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi Erica! I know it's a ways out but H&M is going to FINALLY start selling online, but not till 2013. :(

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like how you wore the sweater as your first layer, showing very little/tasteful cleavage. I just bought a Gap sweater that looks exactly like it (at a thrift store for under $5!). Thank you for the inspiration on how to wear it!
