The reason why I love this "rock Chanel-inspired" tweed jacket so much is because on top of being effortlessly on trend and timeless at the same time, it is also very versatile. This jacket is appropriate for almost any occasion, you can wear it to go out, to go the office or even on the weekends with a perfectly relaxed outfit. You can pair it with jeans, leather leggings or any other trousers, with a skirt or even over a dress. Plus, it has the right amount of glitter to go out while it is still subtle enough for a day in the office.When I received my Asella jacket in the mail I immediately tried it out with three different outfits and it felt right every time, here is the result (my favorite is happy hour, btw).
If you're not convinced yet, have a look at the-working-girl.com (a blog I love!) where the lovely Clara shows how to dress trendy for work and more. Clara wears the Asella jacket to perfection in very different (and inspiring) ways, check it out!
Even if the Asella is not the perfect jacket for you, there are plenty of other alternatives. A Chanel-inspired tweed jacket is always a good investment as you will wear it for a long time. Choose a glitter or lurex version to be just on trend or a no-shine tweed for a more classic look. Here is my selection, my advice is: get one during the winter sales (I mean NOW, if you're in Europe!).
