When I need to get a little dressed up I almost always, always, always grab a statement necklace and a faux leather jacket. The combo pretty much works for anything, whether with dresses or a top + jeans + heels. For daytime or more dressy casual things, I go with my more colorful statement necklaces and my tan moto jacket. Once in a while for evening I’ll use a gold statement necklace and the tan moto jacket. But for evening or just some more dressy events, most often I use this exact statement necklace and this black moto jacket. If you scroll through the ways I’ve worn my black moto jacket HERE you’ll see 6 outfits using this combo!
If you don’t have a go-to combo that allows you to dress a bunch of your pieces up quickly, I’d encourage you to find one! It makes life soooo much easier. Whether it’s the black jewel necklace + moto jacket combo I just showed you, or a statement necklace with a blazer, or a statement necklace and a pair of heels, find one that works for you and never let it go!
On another note, this maroon dress is one of those super soft, might-as-well-be-pajamas dresses from Old Navy (HERE
), and it was sold out for a long time but is BACK IN STOCK (HERE
). I also found a couple that look almost identical for under $20!
