How to Style a Sporty Tweed Moto Jacket

Hi Ladies! Today I want to show you how a cute tweed moto jacket can be just what you need to create a wow outfit from an everyday sweater and pair of jeans.

This is my new cropped tweed moto jacket. That’s right; not all moto jackets are leather or denim. Sometimes you come across something like this, a moto jacket with a classic check print made from traditional tweed fabric.

It’s that cool mix of edgy biker style meets preppy plaid that makes this black and white tweed jacket so modern and youthful.

This simple style recipe starts with a pair of dark wash jeans. I always go for a dark wash because they’re so much more elegant than faded. Then you add a bright sweater (I chose red, but Fuschia would have been stunning too). Finally, top it off with this darling plaid tweed jacket.  Boom!

I always like to pop my collar a bit. It’s a small thing to do, but boy does it make a big difference. The turned-up collar frames your face and gives your outfit a sporty, energetic look. And don’t we want energetic, because energetic is youthful!

I wear a lot of skinny jeans, but with a tweed biker jacket like this one (or the blue plaid jacket I wore in the fall ), I think bootcut flare jeans are dressier and so much more figure-flattering, too. I like the way the flare balances with the wide shoulder the jacket creates, giving me more of an hourglass figure.

It was freezing cold the day I shot this outfit, but I took off my jacket and threw it over my shoulders to show you how a little thing like this can make you look so chic.

I’m wearing my favorite booties, the ones with the gold heel, that I wore with my purple blazer a while back. If you are going to wear flare jeans, please don’t wear flats. You will look like you stubby and like you are drowning in your flares. You need a heel to show off the shape of the jeans and make your legs go on for miles. These gold heeled Michael Kors booties add a touch of glam!

Do you like this look? This one of the best tweed jackets I’ve seen in a while! I’ve posted all the links above, and I ‘ve also linked some similar jackets below because I’m seeing this style of jacket everywhere. Black and white goes with everything, and it’s the perfect jacket to take you into spring. Let me know if you get one, and please send me a photo of how you style it.

  1. You always look fabulous and it seems you have so many fancy places to go! My life is more mundane – Walmart, Target, church or a friend’s for tea. So jeans is my go-to but I try to dress it up once in awhile.

    1. Hi Charlc, it’s an illusion! LOL! Really, I lead a pretty quiet life at home working from my computer in my jeans or leggings. You just see me when I get dressed up to go to a conference or shoot an outfit. I am, however, making a big effort to get out more this year because I find when you have a specific event to go to, it much easier and much more fun to buy clothes. I like dressing up. It feels good. Even a cute jacket like this makes a big difference with a pair of jeans. A jacket adds structure to an outfit and kicks it up a notch! Thanks for stopping and saying hello!
