I think tweed is one of the most timeless and wonderful fabrics we have and over the years I have slowly built up a collection of tweed blazers. Tweed blazers to me are incredibly chic and stylish and require little to no effort to appear put together. It is likely why Coco Chanel popularized them back in the 90s.
Tweed blazers are versatile and I love that they can be work ready if you are in an office environment or going to an important meeting but they can be just as casual, too and therefore perfect for relaxed settings.
I find tweed blazers very Parisian in style and come Fall am always reaching for mine steadily for the next six months till summer once again arrives.
So, if you’re like me and can’t get enough of tweed jacket outfits, this post is for you! It should hopefully give you ideas on how to put the tweed blazers you own in your closet to work.
13 Tweed Blazer Outfit Ideas
Tweed Blazer with Velvet Pants
Want to wear a tweed blazer to a holiday event? Make your blazer holiday ready by pairing it with a pair of velvet ankle crop pants.
With Black Jeans & Kitten Heels
I generally wear a lot of neutrals most of the year and often will pair my plaid tweed blazers with black jeans that look like black pants but are a stitch more casual which suits my lifestyle. For this look, I added a pair of slingback kitten heels.
Springtime Tweed Blazer
I wear springtime tweed blazers, too! I look for blazers that have colors like light blue or safe in them to make them more appropriate for warmer weather.
Monochromatic with a Ballet Flat
I love a monochromatic moment when dressing and a little white tweed blazer over a little white t-shirt is an easy way to take your love of tweed blazers into Spring or Summer. The above one is from Ann Taylor.
With a Silk Tank
A way to “lighten” the look of a tweed blazer outfit is to pair it with a more delicate, feminine silk tank. I think a good silk tank is an excellent Capsule Wardrobe Basic. I have them in both black and white and some with lace and some without lace.
The jacket shown here is from M.M.LaFleur.
With a Patterned Shoe
A fun way to add flair and a bit of visual interest to a more plain tweed blazer outfit is to add a patterned shoe. Mine are the Sarah Flint Natalie Sling.
With a Cashmere Layering Tee
Perfect for transitional times of year, top your favorite tweed blazer over a cashmere layering tee and add a cute pair of feminine flats.
With Jeans and a Tee
Is there anything better than the classic jeans and t-shirt combo? Adding a tweed blazer! This outfit is so simple yet impactful and represents my uniform when getting dressed most days in Fall thanks to how it is made up of French Wardrobe Staples For Fall.
Tweed Blazer with Stripes
The above jacket is more of a tweed cropped jacket than blazer but I love it paired with a classic striped shirt. I love the juxtaposition of a tweed blazer with a distressed, raw hem on a jean. You could also do ripped jeans that aren’t too distressed.
And add a touch of glamour or visual interest on a monochrome tweed blazer by popping on a brooch.
White Tweed Blazer
For warmer months nothing beats a white tweed blazer. Mine above is from Zara and I wore it on a June trip to Paris paired with dark wash jeans and Chanel slingbacks.
With Straight Leg Jeans and Slingbacks
If I wear a blazer with a straight leg jean I almost always add slingbacks. It ensures there is a long line created and that I don’t look too short. I am only 5’5″ so ensuring I don’t look too bogged down in a look is of the utmost importance as I get dressed.
As a Matching Set
It’s very editorial but I love a matching set moment. Pair a tweed blazer with tweed shorts and then add tights and booties or knee high boots as seen above. This set is from Zara.
With a Ruffled Cuff Shirt
I think it is so darling to layer a ruffled collar or ruffled cuff shirt under a tweed jacket. It adds a bit of precious femininity. I’m wearing a light blue tweed jacket from Kate Spade above.
. . .
Clearly I tend to style my tweed blazers in more casual manners (hello, lots of skinny jeans!) given my line of work. But if you work in a more corporate environment, you could try pairing a more cropped tweed blazer with a pencil skirt and I also love the idea of pairing one with black leather pants, too.
As you style them, keep in mind proportions as you’re choosing the pants or skirt and shoes you’ll be adding. You never want to add too much “bulk” to a look and rather want your tweed blazer to be the most interesting element. That’s why I tend to keep my accessories minimal – this way you can let the tweed fabric really shine.
