Here's How to Pair Jackets With Dresses
Jackets can take a simple dress and turn it into an outfit that makes a statement. With so many different styles to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect jacket for your next special occasion. There are many different ways to match jackets and dresses, depending on the style of each piece and the overall look you're going for. Here are ideas on how to mix and match different types of jackets with dresses
When you want your outfit to have more shape and an interesting form for the eye, try belting a jacket and dress with a single belt. The simple accessory will create uniformity among these two pieces (even if they're contrasting like in this example), while also giving them a less flowy look that's perfect when it comes time to wear casual attire for work. You can pair this Alquema ¾ Sleeve Smash Pocket Dress with Blue Flower Prints with a long vest using a thin belt around the waist. It’s a great outfit to wear during summer nights and cocktail parties.
Another great way to style a jacket with a dress is to simply layer the two pieces. This can be done by throwing a jacket over your shoulders or wearing it open in the front. This is a great option if you’re looking to add some coverage without feeling too covered up. You can also try different combinations of materials, like a denim jacket over a silk dress.
Use a Jacket with the Same or Longer Length
The key to achieving an elegant and slimming look with your jacket is choosing one that's longer or equal in length. You can show off the waistline by going for shorter styles, too. This lovely, printed jacket from Dolcezza paired with a plain dress is a fast way to make your outfit more interesting.
Go for a Cropped Jacket
If you’re looking for a way to add some fun and personality to your outfit, try pairing a cropped jacket with a dress. This is a great option if you want to show off the details of your dress. You can also experiment with different materials and prints to create an even more unique look. A denim cropped jacket paired with this gorgeous Alquema Estrella Ombre Charcoal V Neck Structured Dress is a good way to highlight its unique aesthetics. A cropped jacket is neither too long nor too short; hence you can still appreciate and showcase the colour gradient of the dress.
Go for Monochromes
If you want a classic and timeless look, try pairing a jacket and dress in the same colour family. This is a great option if you want to achieve a sophisticated look. You can also experiment with different shades of the same colour to create an ombre effect.
Black on Black is a Classic Combination
One of the most popular ways to style a jacket and dress is with a black-on-black combination. This is a great option if you want to achieve a sleek and elegant look. You can also experiment with different textures and materials to create an interesting contrast.
Try Colour Blocking
If you want a fun and fresh look, try pairing a jacket and dress in contrasting colours. This is a great option if you want to add some personality to your outfit. You can also experiment with different colour combinations to create an even more unique look.
Add Some Texture
If you want to add some dimension to your outfit, try pairing a jacket and dress in different textures. This is a great option if you want to add some interest to your outfit. You can also experiment with different materials to create an even more unique look. For instance, a white cotton dress will stand out more when matched with this stunning Alquema Shibori Plisse Coat. It features a thicker fabric that doubles as protection during the colder months of the year. The white lapel in front has an elongating effect, as well as adds much-needed contrast and depth to your final look.
Play with Proportions
If you want to achieve a more dramatic look, try pairing a jacket and dress in different proportions. This is a great option if you want to add some drama to your outfit. You can also experiment with different silhouette combinations to create an even more unique look.
