Not All Dresses and Jackets Go Together, But These 8 Timeless Combinations Work

Summer might be close to becoming a distant memory, but we’re not forgoing dresses just yet. With temperatures swiftly plummeting, however, we recommend wearing yours with one item in particular: a jacket. You might not think it, but dresses and jackets are notoriously difficult to style together. With varying lengths, it doesn’t take much, perhaps an inch in either direction, to throw off your look. And of course, this isn’t what you want or deserve.

Fret not, though, for we’ve found eight foolproof jackets to go with dresses—a formidable outfit combination that’ll see you through autumn and beyond. Whether your style errs on the casual side or you prefer a more polished way of dressing, our fashion friends have your next dress-and-jacket outfit sorted. So what are you waiting for? Give your jeans and jumpers a break, and keep scrolling to see and shop our favourite jackets to wear with dresses.


Jackets to Go With Dresses: Belted Jacket + Mini Dress



Style Notes: A belted jacket will create a flattering silhouette when paired with just about any dress, but it will look particularly modern alongside a bright mini and ankle boots.
