Winter Essential: The Dress Jacket
January 31, 2012
While the winter weather keeps us wrapped up, don’t miss the essential element to any girl’s wardrobe: the dress jacket. This is a jacket that 1) it’s cozy 2) we grab in an instant whenever we want to look fabulous without a care in the world, and 3) has a unique quality that stands out from the crowds.
Most of us will actually have a few of these jackets in different colors and styles to match our various moods. This winter I’ve embraced colors like red, burgundy, emerald, and eggplant. With my dark hair I like the contrast these colors bring.
A dress jacket is different form a traditional jacket in that when buttoned up it looks like a purposeful dress. Though I love this quality about them, I like to wear them open so it adds more movement with my complete look. I like the layers and length, especially in the winter. It adds depth and keeps you warm all at the same time.
There are two qualities about this particular jacket from eFashion that I absolutely adore: the ruffles and the double breasted buttons.
If a jacket has buttons this season, I either want one single well placed button or a whole bunch of them! I love how one single item can make a bold fashion statement all on its own. For this reason, I like to wear something simple underneath- like a form fitted black dress or extra long tank top. You could even add a simple scarf if you wanted to. It’s a chic and comfortable look.
