Tweed Jacket 3 (Dressy)

Tweed Jacket for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version

Tweed Jackets for women in their 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Quote of the day: “There is nothing interesting about looking perfect-you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are.” Emma Watson

I realize that the tweed jacket is probably one of the last items of clothing you’d reach for when getting dressed up for a special event. But, who knows, maybe it could add an unusual element to the outfit or even bring in that dichotomy aspect! Besides, if it’s a challenge, I’m all for it! Of course I put us all in a dress or skirt and by all means, we pulled out our boots (it may be getting lighter outside, but the temperature can still be brisk). These exact same jackets saw a day at the office (here) and a day running errands (here).
