Ask Belle: Tweed Jackets
Aug 4, 2014
I’ve been passing this Derek Lam jacket in the window of the Georgetown Intermix on my walk to work each day and I’m becoming obsessed. Any ideas for a cheaper copycat?
Thanks! Hope you’re enjoying yourself out West. -Anon
A tweed jacket is a good choice for any professional or business casual wardrobe. Wear it with work separates, over sheath dresses or with denim. The Lam jacket is a lovely option, but $450 is a lot to spend on one jacket.
There weren’t many choices in ivory and white. This Club Monaco jacket was the best one that I found. Need something under-$100? This Nine West drape-front jacket is a great choice. I also love this Kenneth Cole Amber jacket from Lord & Taylor.
Plus-size? It’s difficult to find a tweed jacket that isn’t cropped, so I’d keep looking as we get into the fall months. This Pendleton jacket is a nice option in a soft, navy melange.
