I recently bought a thrifted tweed blazer. It fits beautifully but I’m not sure what to pair it with so I don’t look like an old lady. Any ideas?

So much you can do with a classic tweed jacket. Pair it with tailored shorts, a feminine blouse and your favorite platforms for a dressy chic look or wear with a skinny-fit pant for a casual cool feel.

I just did a search on tweed blazer on Chictopia and it looks like a lot of people pair it with something simple – like black skinny jeans. I also like the retro look this girl is sporting here with her urban outfitters tweed blazer.

If you’re going to wear some nice pants, just add converses to get an oomph of youthfulness.

I think a tweed blazer will look sophisticated and chic, especially since the fabric looks really expensive. Play with contrasts; a ruffled top or a chiffon dress against the masculinity of the jacket. It’s also a perfect “preppy-piece”, just add some classic garments (button downs, school-boy shorts) in funky colors and a pair of nerd glasses for a cool look.
I made some suggestions for you, there are 8 different outfit ideas, and I just used different color blazers since you didn’t tell us what color yours is :)

Pair it with a girly, flowy short dress. It will add softness to the entire look.
