How to wear a tweed jacket (& not look frumpy)

Record setting low temperatures will not give us a break, so putting away jean jackets and vests, camo coats, and sweaters hasn't happening yet. Layering with a ladylike tendency  adds a refreshing mix to the ordinary and a Chanel-esque tweed jacket as a topper is easy and adds a cropped & fitted silhoutte for both skinnies and boyfriend jeans. They even look fab with shorts and since they are available in linen and cotton, who says you have to put them away with your puffer jacket?  So channel Chanel, or find a nice print and take your basics up a notch. The Authentic Chanel Jacket is my obsession, along with a Kate Moss swagger:

Thank goodness these non-tweed or tweed jackets have a similar look for a lot less dent on the wallet. They instantly pull together jeans, even shorts, and a tshirt:

Or keep it dainty and simple, although with pattern-mixing and neon, this could be brightened up in a heartbeat:
