I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely used to associate tweed with Sherlock Holmes’ era male hats and suits. I did not think much of it entering the women’s fashion world until recently when I started seeing tweed “boyfriend” blazers and coats at many retailers. I think it takes a little extra effort to pull off a look with a tweed piece. The layering needs to be well thought out.
The piece that inspired today’s look is this tweed blazer with what I call “Mozart” sleeves, from SheIn that they were kind enough to send me. I was immediately drawn to this piece because of the pearl buttons, the unique sleeves and because I’ve never owned anything in this material before. I envisioned the look pretty much right away. I knew I wanted to pair it up with a white chiffon blouse but also with flared jeans to make it a more casual look and less work-inspired.
