|J.Crew Tie Detail Tweed Lady Jacket (also here)|
J. Crew is a reliable source of affordable tweed pieces and has produced some of my closet favorites (I keep hoping the Maple Tweed Jacket would be brought back in new colorways). My most recent J. Crew tweed purchase is this frilly tweed jacket, which is now on sale at J. Crew (30% off with code SHOPFAST) and Nordstrom (40% off, price as marked).
I’ve decided to keep this jacket, but my feelings about it remain mixed–the “playful” ties just feel unnecessary to me, yet they’ve been fully integrated into the design so removal is not an option. Otherwise, the jacket, with its dark blue backdrop and streaks of color, is versatile. Below I show it worn casually with boyfriend jeans, and slightly more formally with a fitted knee-length skirt.

The style fits true to size for J. Crew. In size 000, the jacket measures 21″ in length, and 16.5″ from underarm to underarm.
J. Crew‘s 30% off storewide promotion ends at midnight (09/29/17), so be sure to shop the sale if you haven’t already. The Chateau Parka in Italian Stadium-Cloth Wool that I love and own in multiple colorways (reviewed here) has been re-released this season in six colors.
