Which jacket to wear with a navy blue dress? Lots of ideas to discover!

Do you have a pretty navy dress and are wondering what jacket to wear with? Would you like to know the colors and types of jackets that would sublimate a navy dress

You've come to the right place. 

As a fashion enthusiast, the navy dress is a classic for me, which is always handy to have in your wardrobe. Since it's a rather wintery shade, it's essential to know which jacket to pair it with, to not get cold and be stylish in all circumstances. 

Today, I'm offering several look ideas, so you can find a jacket that suits you, whatever your taste and style. 

Navy blue being an easy-to-wear and simple-to-match hue, you can pretty much get away with anything with a dress in this color. If your dress is rather short or mid-length, above the knee, you can wear it with a denim jacket, a blazer, a leather perfecto or even a long bohemian chic cardigan. If it is a long dress and you are rather tall, you can opt for a faux fur jacket or a nice oversized cardigan. Regarding the colors, do not hesitate to marry navy blue with natural leather brown, pastel shades (yellow, pink), black or even white.

A denim jacket for a dynamic, casual outfit

Want to add a vintage detail to your outfit? If you were born in the 80s and 90s, you must remember this iconic garment, which could be customized and worn throughout the mid-season. Thus, the denim jacket is perfect to wear with a navy blue dress, especially if it is short and worn above the knees. It can be plain or patterned!

On the other hand, a jean jacket, although also blue, will not clash at all with a navy blue dress. On the contrary, its different texture and lighter hue will help structure your silhouette and give your outfit some edge! 

A faux fur jacket for a sophisticated look

When putting on a dress in the fall or winter, many times you are afraid of being cold. The most frigid part of our body is very often our bust: it is therefore it that we must protect at all costs to be warm and be comfortable.

With a faux fur jacket, you are guaranteed a fashionable yet comfortable garment that really keeps you warm. Like the denim jacket, the fur will, moreover, create a contrast in texture, which will make your outfit look great! 

A long vest for a feminine and comfortable bohemian chic look

Are you looking for a jacket that's suitable for days when it's a little chilly in the morning and warm in the afternoon? Or maybe for putting on under a coat? In that case, the long vest will be perfect for you. Easy to put on and take off, it can be tucked into a bag or worn over your arm if the temperatures warm up. 

For a chic bohemian effect, I recommend choosing it a little oversize, with nice quality knits. The appropriate length varies depending on the size of your dress:

  • A mini or mini dress (above or at knee level) can be worn with a slightly long cardigan, as long as it is shorter than the dress, even by a few inches,
  • For a long dress, I recommend either: 
    • A fairly short, but oversized cardigan that stops below the waist,
    • An extra-long cardigan that comes down below the knees.

➡ In any case, avoid a mid-length cardigan, which would unbalance your figure and shorten your legs.
