I am in LOVE with this look! For a matinee showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I paired these two items together and it was perfectly dressy and … well, not.
Yeah, I know – but trust me on this one. My inspiration was the December issue of Instyle magazine.
Do you know a better way to repurpose all your ‘fancy’ dresses that don’t get the wear they should? Such a shame to leaving them hiding in the back of the closet. Why save them for weddings, church and NYE? It was amazing how easy and obvious the transformation was with the simple addition of an army jacket. The fancy dress became less so and the jacket more so. It was the perfect mix. The neutral color of most army jackets means it is bound to pair with almost any ‘fancy’ dress. This is a look I would even wear to the office. One note – be sure to keep your shoes feminine lest anyone forget you are.
Below are four other pairings – these items are all ON SALE during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale through January 2nd.
