Only girls who have to deal with cold winter understand the necessity of a black jacket as cover ups for dresses. You want to wear a dress to a holiday party, but you also need to keep yourself warm. The quick solution? Throw over your party dress a black jacket.
For most dresses, it´s the cropped jacket that works, or even the shrugs, but with enough creativity, even your classic work suit can also be restyled for party looks. Here are five ways to juicy up a black jacket this season.
1. a black short jacket over a printed dress
It´s automatic for us to pick up a dark print in cold seasons. Or, if it´s not entirely shadowed, at least a print with hints of dark in it. The best topper to go with it is a black jacket. Remember that if your dress is a fit and flare, a beautiful cropped blazer will keep things sleek without hindering the skirt from flaring the way it´s meant to.
2. a black short jacket over a sequined party dress
Sequined dresses, especially gold, remains a fashionable essential for party outfits. If it´s gold, wear it with black — cropped jacket + heels + clutch – in order to keep things polished.
3. a classic jacket with midi skirt
It´s just wise to invest on a versatile black jacket because you get the most of your money. This timeless piece will look powerful with pencil skirts and trousers for work, but it can also look charming when layered with dark separates with feminine lines such as a midi A-line skirt and some gorgeous high suede boots.
4. a black cover up with a sleeveless dress
If you´re opting for an above-the-knee fit-and-flare dress and still want to look dignified, stick with black. As I’ve said earlier, crop cover up for a flared dress, only this time it´s black on black.
5. a peplum cover up with printed dress
A cropped peplum jacket is another thing to consider. This is especially flattering when you´re wearing sheath or empire waist dresses. Notice too how the effects of simple hints of color on a head-to-toe black party look. Powerful.
Tell me, girls, do you also wear black jacket to layer with dresses and skirts in winter?
