Layering denim jackets over dresses is quite a fad. To fashion this trend, you have to pay attention to the type of dress you are wearing as well as the length and wash of the jacket. Firstly, a jean jacket is a casual garment and should never be worn with formal dresses. Also, denim is a bulky fabric, so the dress should be of a light flimsy textile. The wash of the jacket should complement the color and style of the dress. Dark washes go well with dresses that have bright colors, rich fabrics or a ritzy make. Light washed denim jackets are best for pale prints and muted hues. Here are a few more style tips to look ravishing in this trend.
1. Close fitted dresses
Close fitted dresses when paired with denim jackets look smashing. A bright colored tube dress is a splendid pick. It is best to wear jackets of short length that ends just below your bust and a slightly higher than your waist. Leave the jacket unzipped and style with hoops and pair of boots. You can also add metallic chains, a thick long one or several thin chains together. A fitted dress in a floral print worn with a short cropped jacket is a stunner. Also, strapless well fitted casual dresses can be worn with a jeans jacket.
2. Relaxed fit
Pull on a relaxed fit A-line dress with a jean jacket, one that rests just below the knee or higher. Deck up wearing nominal jewelry and flats like sandals, ballerinas or gladiators. Carry a smart tote, hobo or some other handbag. Dresses with details like pleats or frills look great with jackets.
3. Over a sack dress
Wear jean jacket over a sack dress to create a casual attire that you can wear for your trip to the supermarket or to grab a cuppa at the café. You can also team it with a knee length sheath dress of comfort fit. Again, short jackets that end above the waist go well with such dresses. Sport a skinny belt high on the waist along with stud earrings and wedge heels.
4. Dresses with flared bottoms
Dresses with flared bottoms and snug top halves look smashing with jean jackets. Sport a chunky bracelet with this dress and strapped sandals, boots or flashy gladiators. With a short dress that ends above the knee to mid thigh, don a longer denim jacket that ends below the hips. You can wear so many shoes with this garb. Just slip into strapped sandals, boots, clogs, or gladiators.
5. Long hippie styled dresses
The very long hippie styled dresses are perpetually a showstopper when paired with denim jackets. Pick vibrant floral, geometric or batik prints with a light blue jean jacket. When it comes to long dresses, one cannot miss out on sundresses and maxi dresses. These can have strapped bodices, strapless fitted tops or other barely there necklines. Chunky shoes and weighty jewellery are best for such outfits. Pick earthy jewelry made from beads or terracotta and think wedges, platforms, clogs, etc. You can even fancy up a striking pair of sandals or gladiators. Look quirky and grab attention by paring them with boots, especially the whimsical pointy toe styles.
