How to Style a Fringe Tweed Jacket with Jeans or Pants

Fringe tweed jackets are often worn with a matching skirt or dress, but they are also classy with casual pants or jeans.  Here’s what’s to love about them, and how to wear them to create an elevated casual outfit. fringe-jackets-tweed


Chanel inspired tweed jackets like this, with raw, unfinished edges and detailing are fabulous for a few reasons:

  1. They make you look professional: Any kind of third layering piece like this jacket adds authority and credibility to your look.
  2. They give your body a better shape: These jackets give  your softer, rounder more mature 40+ body more a better shape – They are tailored just enough to give your 40+ body the structure you need,  but the raw edges give them a more relaxed, so you don’t look stiff or uptight
  3. They’re are made for moving. They are easy to move in and you, roll them up and toss them in a suitcase.
  4.  The raw edge fringe adds texture which makes your outfit less flat, and more interesting.
  5. Fringe edge jackets are playful looking  compared to a regular jacket, which translates into youthful

You can go more conservative with a touch of short fringe all around the jacket. These three jackets above are good examples of that. I like the mix of classic pieces with a boho fringe jacket. Too much fringe, as in a fringe jacket mixed with a fringe top, jewelry, or bag, starts to make it look like you are wearing a costume.


Fringed Cardigan Sweater

A close cousin to the tweed fringe jacket is the Frige cardigan sweater.





Raw edge sweaters that look like jackets are popular too. This fringed knit sweater coat ( similar) is great for fall when you don’t want to wear a coat, but you need something.  What do you think of this look- classy, fun, or just shabby like ripped jeans? I’d love to hear what you think.

  1. We are women “of a certain age” who have been through the:fringe-and-jeans” thing back in the ’60s and 70’s. IMHO, (hopefully) having left “fast fashion” behind, our clothes should be remarkable for their construction and fabric, certainly not something we would EVER “roll up and toss in a suitcase.” This trend, along with faux leather accessories, glitzy “statement” jewelry and clothes than span one’s hips do not read “youthful,” but “mutton as lamb.”

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
