Tweed jackets aren’t just for country clubs anymore; celebs are now pairing the classic style with everything from cut-off shorts to skinny jeans. Thanks to designers like Tory Burch and Kate Spade, the WASP staple has been given a modern makeover and we love it. Try the polished look this summer or fall; we’ve got some tips for wearing both:

Go with a versatile, cropped style like this Aqua Ruffled Tweed Cropped jacket ($48.02). The ruffle details makes it feminine, and the gray color works for both summer and fall.

For now:

Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce rocked the look with bare legs and pink accents for summer. The look is so feminine and polished, check out the easy steps to copy it at home:

Dress the tweed style down with a basic tank, or one with a small ruffle trim like this Susina Ruffle camisole ($24). The pink is feminine and the tank top style makes it more youthful.

All you need on bottom is a pair of great fitting, tailored shorts. We’d go for these Topshop Tailored shorts ($100) – the white is great against tan legs and silky style feels very high-end.

A sexy, edgy shoe like these  Stuart Weitzman Full Up Cognac Leather heels ($224.25, down from $345) is the perfect contrast to an otherwise girly look.

For later:

Tweed is great for fall; pair it with skinny dark jeans and peep toe pumps like Victoria Beckham, America Ferrera and Zoe Saldana did.

Update the tweed jacket for fall by pairing it with a dark tank like this black Majestic Racerback tank ($54, down from $95).

Dark or slate gray jeans like this Citizens of Humanity Avedon Skinny pair ($165) look great with the tweed style – or a boyfriend blazer if you prefer it.

These Steve Madden Lorane pumps ($89.95) make legs look slimmer and go with most pant and skirt styles.
