Tweed Jacket + The Pleated Dress

Yesterday I raved about how much I love Ann Taylor and today I am featuring yet another Ann Taylor favorite. I purchased this tweed blazer from last year’s fall collection but again, this is another timeless piece. I love a well constructed tweed jacket because it adds elegance and chicness to an outfit.

Outfit Details

I wanted to wear this vintage pleated dress I thrifted a few years ago, but I wanted to wear something to make it pop. As a side note, this dress is sheer so I definitely had to wear a slip underneath. While the obvious was to wear a coat or jacket, I wanted a piece that would really make this dress stand out. As I browsed through my closet, I realized that I had yet to wear this tweed sequin jacket this season so I immediately knew that this was the item that was really going to make this dress standout. The jacket has beautiful sequins throughout but the photos did not capture the beautiful detailing. However, the sequins on the jacket really makes it a standout piece. The dress has a nice “gold shimmer” undertone so I decided to pair with my bedazzled Steve Madden heels. I finished this look with a matching red lip and my black vintage eel leather purse.
