4 Jackets to Wear with Dresses

It's that time of year in Michigan wear you never really know what the day is going to bring- rain, snow, sunshine. Heck, we may get all three in one day LOL. As it warms up we all want to style our new dresses, but we also don’t want to freeze. That’s where layering comes in, and it’s honestly one of our favorite things about this time of year. It’s fun to play with different jackets and blazers to tie look together. Here are four jackets to wear with dresses in the spring and summer.


  1. Let’s kick it off with everyone’s favorite, you should already know what I’m going to say, the denim jacket! This has to be the easiest layering essential for your wardrobe. Whether it’s over a top, a jumpsuit, a dress, whatever it may be. There are so many different colors, silhouettes, and designs nowadays, you really can’t have too many. The Savanna Jane and Southern Belle denim jackets are the same, they’re just in two different washes. Both are a relaxed fit, that gives a little bit more of a laid-back feel. They have a fun touch of sparkle with a rhinestone embellishment on the pockets. Easily layer this over a t-shirt dress or a simple cotton midi dress. You can complete the look with a sneaker and a fun hoop earring for a day shopping in downtown Bay City.  These jean jackets will be your go to, no matter the occasion. 

  2. Next, for more of an edgy look for a night out and girls weekend, the Born to Ride Moto Jacket is the answer! It’s composed of a beautiful, rich, brown, faux leather. It is more of a tailored silhouette, so we recommend sizing up to give yourself a little bit more room. But it’s a great neutral that you can easily layer over a solid dress, or a dress that has a subtle print to it. For a night out, we love to layer it over a bodycon, shirt dress with a cute bootie or block heel. Finish the look off with a statement earring. This moto jacket will be one that you will have in your closet for years to come. The best part, it's a great color to style year round!

  3. Another moto jacket, with a little more of a feminine touch, the Electra. It features a more relaxed fit with a soft, faux suede, in a gorgeous camel color. This one is a great option for every day. It still has a little bit of an edgy feel, but it’s a little more elegant and dressy. You could easily styled us over a dress for a summer wedding. Or over a blouse with trousers for weekend brunch. It’s the perfect color to pair with anything from white black to magenta.

  4. Last up is the Lori Shacket. It has a boxy silhouette, made of an off-white, faux leather. It’s literally perfection. You'll want to layer it from day to night, all year long. We promise this shacket doesn’t disappoint. Lara over a dress that’s more fitted, because the jacket itself doesn’t have any shape. It has a chic feel, making it a great option to style for the workplace. Brides, this one would be the perfect finishing layer for your bachelorette party weekend.

There’s just something about layering that gets us excited to pick out an outfit. There are so many different jacket options nowadays, from unique silhouettes, bold prints to classic staples. Be sure to be prepared if you’re in Michigan, it’s always good to have a jacket on hand! Let us know what your go-to jacket is to layer over dresses and jumpsuits for warmer weather.
