timeless, classic tweed blazer

if you have followed the blog for any length of time, you know my love for classic style runs deep. what is classic style? it’s characterized by clean silhouettes, a neutral palette, fine natural fabrics, leather shoes and handbags (Chelsea boots, loafers, and block-heel pumps), paired down accessories, and timeless wardrobe staples. while classic style is aware of the trends and incorporates them into their style they’re not dependent on them. think understated simplicity. and classic style women always have a go-to style uniform. for my preppy aesthetic, i dubbed my uniform the 4-B’s – blazer, button-down, blue jeans, and ballet flats. but when i want to up the ante with my style uniform, i exchange the button down for a silk blouse or camisole and add pumps.

it’s become clear over the years that i have a need for tweed. a tweed blazer that it is. a tweed blazer is classic through and through and will last for years. dress them down with a graphic tee, opens in a new windowoutfits i wore in New York City or a striped tee and chinos, opens in a new windowmodern twist. if you are looking to add a timeless, classic tweed blazer into your wardrobe, start with a neutral color first.

    I love this type of look! I was lucky to be gifted a string of pearls (from girlfriends, for my 30th) that is long enough to come to my knees! So I can wrap them 5 times which gives such a dramatic look. One of my fave ways to style them is to pair them with a tweed jacket inspired cardigan (as a NE England girl in SF bay area I’m always running hot, esp now with menopausal hot flushes!) and it is such a stylish and classic look, I always feel good in that outfit.

    Piles of pearls with a navy dress and red shoes is such a beautiful look too. One of my favourites for a wedding. Elegant, classy, timeless, and most importantly, understated – to keep focus on the bride, which is where it should be.

    In fact, I’m wearing simple pearl drop earrings now with a Pendleton long sleeved dark blue t-shirt and jeans, just to sit at my desk working from home! Your post a few months back about dressing for ourselves got me inspired to dress better even when just home. While my specific jeans today are no longer ones I’d go to the office in – I’ve lost weight so they’re looser than I think looks good – the overall look is still something I’d wear for the end of the week to the office, and that is making me feel better about all this lockdown stuff.

    • can there be a better gemstone than pearls? your necklace sounds divine. and it was a gift to boot so it will always be attached to a memory!

    Guess I’m a throw back to the 60’s classics because I can never adopt the idea of dressy up top with casual on the lower half. I’ve tried but can’t seem to get out the door with it. However, good for you, for changing with the times. Happy New Year!

    • classics are tried and true no matter what decade. the trick is how to stay modern and fresh. the high low look is but one way. but if it doesn’t
      suit your taste there are other options. what we don’t want to happen with classic style is to look stodgy and out of date.
