Jacket Dress

A jacket dress says sophistication, worldly wisdom and poise. Its silhouette makes for beautiful beginnings in the morning and gentle endings as the day ends. Its added layer of clothing allows added warmth for those times the air is crisp and clean. The outfits come equally alluring, as it is practical.

Sleeveless dresses acquire a completely different look and feel when one slides a jacket on. Take a spaghetti strap dress and slide on a jacket and the look goes from informal to office dress. Put a wrap type of jacket with a bold print over a spaghetti strap dress and the look becomes extraordinary. Find a jacket dress with detailing and embellishments that will accent any look. These dresses also come with contrasting fabrics and different hemlines to go from casual to elegant. Lines such as Jessica Howard and SL Fashions offer many options to help you create your own style.

Short sleeve dresses have cutting-edge creativity on many of its items. Ruffled collars and edging with two tones on the jackets make for interesting look. Semi-sheer jackets with bell sleeves and beaded patterning create a feminine look. Some jackets put fine details along the hemlines, openings and necklines, giving it that extra special touch of grace and beauty. Others chose to use vibrant prints on the jacket to jazz up the look to beguiling. R&M Richards and AGB create lines of jackets that display these features.

Find long sleeve dresses with jackets with sheer or lace sleeves. This gives a sense of elegance to the outfit and gives a flowing gentle feel to the clothing. Some lines have a jacket dress that comes with a fitted look that follows the outlines of the body. Other dress sets come with a loose-fitting jacket design that swings and sways with a woman's movements as she makes her way through her day.

A three-quarter sleeve dress provides a choice about hem length and lets a woman have the best of both worlds without making any sacrifices in taste or quality of design. Jackets come cropped to hip length with straight and diagonal openings. Fine evening dresses sparkles like the stars at night with interesting beadwork and play on lights and darks. Floral prints are also a popular choice. Alex Evenings and Tiana B offers jackets of this sleeve length for a multitude of options.

The jacket dress adds an interesting, versatile option to a woman's wardrobe. See all the possibilities at Macy's.
