Tweed Jacket for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version
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).
50’s Tweed Jacket: I’m still loving my OTK boots (I did an entire post on them here)! To me, they are the cat’s meow at keeping me warm!
60’s Tweed Jacket: Nancy’s jacket has so many wonderful colors in it (I know, I’ve said that before—but aren’t they terrific?) that I thought I’d showcase it against the blue dress!
70’s Tweed Jacket: Mom had to make a couple alterations to the jacket for a better fit! And aren’t the colors in her tweed pretty, too?
