How do you style tweed? Maybe try making it the tomboy aesthetic. We all know tweed. A tweed jacket is a timeless wardrobe piece that will fit right into your wardrobe, whether you spend most of your time in a formal office or in a more relaxed setting. The fact that a tweed jacket looks just as great in off-duty combinations as it does in sophisticated ensembles makes it an ideal go-to jacket to throw on wherever you go and a savvy investment piece if you ask me. However, sometimes you might look at it as being boring and like there’s nothing unexpected about it. Think again!
5 ways to wear tweed the tomboy way
If you’re afraid of looking too pretentious, don’t be. I will tell you how I would wear tweed.
Option 1: Wear a simple boxy black or white tee under the jacket and leave the latter unbuttoned. Order the jacket a couple of sizes up for a looser look.
Alternative: Wear it with a denim skirt and round off with combat boots to instantly step up the oomph factor of your ensemble.
Another one: Add an oversized biker jacket on top and the whole look will come together way cooler.
If you don’t want to add extra elegance and femininity, stay away from blouses with ruffles or a bow tie and even a classic button-down shirt. Another way to break the way-too-polished vibe of this jacket is to play with color – instead of going for some (sometimes boring) neutral option.
Finally, the easiest way to add some boyish punk flair to a look is by using accessories – as in a chunky chain (maybe several layered) and a pair of really oddly shaped earrings. Stack it up, baby! Take a look at the options I found below.
Plus if a tweed jacket is too much for you, why not try a tweed bag? I own a Chanel tweed flap bag in midnight blue and it makes for the perfect autumn/winter bag. Left a few options below as well, for you to have a look at!
