Hello Lovelies!

Nothing says dressy/casual like a cargo jacket over a dress and heels. Even though the day was hotter than blazes and I got more than one odd stare thrown my way, I love this combo.

The 2 things to remember when dressing down an outfit:

1. Make sure the colors you’re using coordinate. When you’re pairing your jacket and dress, pick colors that compliment each other.

2. Try not to mix prints. It’s best for this type of look to either pair solid with solid, or a solid with a print.

How do you like to dress down your fancy outfits?

  • Great tips especially, the second one! I really love how you paired it with a cargo jacket. Most people would dress it down with a denim jacket. It is nice to see something different.

  • Hello! Great pairing! I love the pretty feminine dress with the rugged jacket. They work well together and the colors do match as well. Love it!

  • Cute way of styling this dress in a more casual manner. And I agree, when dressing down simple is better.
