When you want more coverage and don't want to fuss with a wrap, the jacket dress is a great option.

The matching dress and jacket is perfect for mother of the bride looks, anniversary parties and wedding guests.

Keep the fabrics shiny and luxe, not stiff or heavy, so the overall look is beautiful.

Shorter or bolero jackets pair nicely with long gowns; dusters go best with dressy pants.
