This tweed blazer is proof that dreams really do come true. I had it on my opshop wishlist for a few weeks and finally ‘found the one’ for $5 at Studio Thrifty 4 on the weekend!! *insert happy cat with heart shaped eyes emoji here*

Tweed jackets are having a major fashion moment right now from the runway, to the street, to your Insta feed, but rather than blowing the budget at the mall, why not try thrifting yourself a piece of this iconic British outerwear?

It’s the circle of life when it comes to fashion, so you’ll actually track down some vintage tweed pretty quickly at your local thrift store. Try shopping the men’s racks for a slim fit jacket, roll up the sleeves, remove the shoulder pads and work that woven fabric baby!

Team your tweed with a basic white tee or chambray shirt and a pair of tapered jeans to streamline the look.
