What jacket to wear with a black dress?

The black dress is a versatile piece that can be found in any wardrobe! Short or long with a marked waist, it can be worn at work, in the evening, or for a city walk. The combination of accessories will allow you to change your style. But which jacket to wear with a black dress?

A bohemian jacket

In jeans, linen, cotton or wool, the bohemian jacket is embellished with ethnic or floral motifs. It can be embellished with laces and fringes, very much used in the bohemian style.

Short, half-long or long, it is fluid so that you can keep a real freedom of movement. Combined with the black dress, it brings a casual touch for a chic bohemian look.

Bohemian shoes, a scarf and bohemian jewellery will complete your style. 

A blazer

Ideal for going to the office, the blazer brings a classy and casual touch to your outfit. To contrast with the black colour of your dress, choose a bright or light plain colour. If you prefer to bet on elegance you can wear it black. Patterns are also welcome to brighten up your look.

You can wear it buttoned for a tighter look or open for a casual look.

A perfecto

Created in 1928 for motorcyclists, it was then widely worn by rockers and punks before being definitively adopted by the fashion world in the 90s.

Today, the perfecto remains an essential jacket! It brings a rebellious touch that contrasts with the more classic side of the black dress. As for its colour, anything goes: you can opt for an all black style, a black and white look or even play with several colours with the help of complementary accessories. You can let your imagination express itself according to your desires. 

A trench coat

Invented during the First World War, the trench coat was a waterproof coat that went down to the calves. It was introduced into the fashion world by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1970s. Today, it is a basic piece of women's dressing. Made from soft materials, it is usually lined with a fine fabric.

Ideal for mid-season, you can wear it daily with your black dress. Usually plain, you can afford any colour. Only the size will have to be adjusted according to your dress. It should be longer than your trench coat, unless you opt for a long jacket cut that covers your legs.

A denim jacket

Another wardrobe must-have, the denim jacket goes very well with a black dress. It brings a casual touch and can be worn in all situations.

On the colour side, avoid choosing black because the shade will not be the same as your dress. Whether raw or light, the jeans colour will contrast with the black of the dress. You can also afford all types of patterns and ornaments: designs, laces...

As for the cut, the choice is free: oversize or fitted, long sleeves or rolled up... Wear it according to your desires!

A cardigan

For a casual look, you can also opt for a cardigan or a large knit vest. The cardigan will be shorter and tighter while the vest will be looser.

Your look will combine the classic elegance of the black dress with the light casualness of the vest.

Wear it buttoned for a strict look. If you prefer to accentuate the casual look, wear it with only one button or not at all.

The choice of your jacket depends on the look you want to wear, and with a black dress anything goes!
