A tweed jacket is THE traditional layering piece for fall - for guys and girls - and it's also very on-trend. With it's nubby texture and cozy warmth, it's the perfect early autumn outerwear or bitter cold layer. And that texture also makes it an ideal "non-solid" solid to pair with other patterns and mix it up a bit. You can wear any of these tweed jackets with a streamlined dress, a print blouse and trousers, or jeans and a t-shirt. Just grab your jacket and get ready for fall.

Go against the grain in a pale tweed jacket, and make it all about texture. A wool sheath dress provides a body-skimming silhouette, while suede booties keep it from getting too serious (and a snake-print heel never hurts). Add some shine, and then punch it with a colored bag.

Go for high contrast in a black and white tweed jacket, and layer it over a colorful dot print blouse. Cropped boy trousers lend a masculine edge, balanced by standout stilettos and ladylike jewelry.
