Early Spring Styling: Jackets + Dresses

Spring calls for dresses. Early Spring calls for jackets and dresses. I love how the boyish elements of a jacket perfectly compliment a feminine dress. Here are some great Jacket-Dress combinations for your styling inspiration.

The styling possibilities are endless and you don't need to shop to get this look: just go through your closet and pull out your jackets and simply start trying them on with your dresses. Consider different color combinations and you'll be surprised how polished yet cool you'll look. 
The best thing about this look is that if you tone down a colorful dress with a jacket you can play up another accessory like jewelry or shoes! Have a lovely day everyone!
