Jackets and dresses go together like peanut butter and jelly—or, to keep a sartorial theme going, like suits and ties. Two-piece dresses are versatile, convenient, and stylish, not to mention how well they work with different dress codes and occasions. Whether you're looking for something fancy and formal or a sleek, sophisticated dress for the office, you'll find the jacket dresses you're looking for—and then some.
Dresses with jackets make for smart office attire by combining the tailored edge of a jacket with the crisp, clean lines of a chic dress. Certain styles shine more than others in an office setting. Opt for well-fitted frocks, such as sheath dresses, paired with jackets or blazers. Stick to neutral color palettes and understated patterns, including stripes, plaid, or color blocking. Avoid floral patterns and steer clear of more vivid shades as your base. Anchor playful prints with dark suit coats.
Two-piece dresses are ideal for fun, formal, or fancy occasions that aren't exactly black tie but still demand a polished appearance. They offer a mix of comfort and impeccable style that you don't often find. The key is to find items that combine the right details. Experiment with a dazzling sequinned dress and a black, navy, or white jacket. The contrast is so stunning that you'll stand out as the belle of the ball. Need something for a wedding or a work function? Consider a monochromatic ensemble in lilac or navy with a lacy jacket.
Wear dress-and-jacket combos for your daily routine. Anytime you feel like dressing up or showing off your signature sartorial flair, slip into a fun frock and go about your business. Splash out in vibrant patterns and hues. Dazzle the eyes of every passerby in a gorgeous floral dress accented with a cool mint or coral jacket. Rock a retro vibe in a midi-length hem, or turn yourself into a summertime vision with a flowing floral frock.
