How To: Style A Tweed Jacket

    Love how you styled it! I’ve seen jackets like that at thrift stores and never know how to style them because they’re usually oversized, but this outfit is giving me good ideas! Also – love those suede pants!

      Thanks Catherine, so glad this serves a good inspiration for you!  Oversized jackets are the best and my favorite. Just always remember to wear a skinny pant or skirt with one so that the jacket frames your figure.  Want to see your oversized jacket finds!
