several readers have asked for different ways to style an investment piece. like today’s tweed jacket. and while i typically don’t offer multiple outfit options within one post, those of you who have followed the blog for any length of time have seen the same item worn over and over again. these suede booties last seen here have been on ootd repeat all winter. and this jersey dress was last seen here. same goes for this tweed jacket seen here and here. i make my closet work for me.
and while there are many price points for a tweed jacket (yes, there are a variety of budgets out there) from luxury on down to fast fashion. the good news is there is an option available to you and your wallet. you see, stepping out in style doesn’t have to break the bank. but it does take some thought and effort. and this girl is always keen on finding different ways to style one item. who remembers my rule of three? that’s right. when i’m oogling the latest store collection i ask myself if there are three things hanging in my closet i can pair it with. this one question keeps me focused and my closet streamlined.
so how did i style this fab tweed jacket? well, for those of us ‘nine-to-five’ girls here’s an ootd for you. nothing is easier to wear than a black jersey shift dress – it works 365 days of the year. i threw on a gold belt to pick up the metallic threads found in the jacket. and a pair of booties and black tights. whenever i wear a tweed jacket layers of pearls always seem right. we have coco chanel to thank for setting that trend almost a century ago. add a structured handbag, and hi-ho, it’s off to work i go.
