If you’re thinking about pairing jeans and a jacket, few things will work as well as tweed.

A suit made of an informal, seasonal fabric has one undeniable advantage: it can be worn as separates.

There’s not really much to say about this outfit. It’s simple smart casual for early, chilly spring.

Apart from denim trousers, there’s also a denim shirt – in much, much lighter shade though. Its texture works well with the jacket as well. I really like the ripples on the collar – I don’t iron them out, just touch the collar with the iron. It makes it even less formal.

Accessories: dark green grenadine tie and a yellow pocket square (with a navy pattern).

Light brown boots – I like how this colour looks with darker, navy jeans.

And a camel coat over all of this.

In theory, there’s plenty of colours here: the beige (camel?) of the coat, the navy of the jeans, the light blue of the shirt, the gray of the cardigan, the geen tie, the yellow pocket square, and different shades of brown on the boots and the jacket. But it doesn’t feel overdone – the colours are not particularly loud. They’re either neutral, basic colours, or presented on subtle accessories, like the pocket square.
