The Perfect LBD & Jean Jacket Combo

Hi everyone,

Some LBD’s (little black dresses) are for evenings out, or meant to be stand-alone pieces. While these are great, I love the casual LBD. I pair my favorite one, by designer Alexander Wang, with my Ralph Lauren jean jacket. The jacket has a vintage feel with an American flag on the back.

This look is easy to pair with trainers (I go with Sperry’s) or more dressed up with booties or heels. There’s so much versatility here. Just like I love to pair summer dresses with sneakers for an easy and comfortable look, these two pieces in combination make an effortless but put together look.

I also wanted to share my new favorite lipstick line Bite Beauty. It is sold through Sephora, and the ingredients are all natural and organic. Not to mention the colors are absolutely amazing. I am wearing the color “Praline,” which is a spicy peach shade. It’s my go-to lipstick for the day time.

I confess, I own two other shades as well, but I am telling you, the price is worth it for the boost of antioxidants given to your lips and the undeniable color quality. You’ll thank me later.

A little bit about my makeup routine: I go very low coverage. To be frank, I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything, which is what I’m comfortable with. As long as my eyebrows are filled and my lips have color, the rest is really subtle. We all have our ideal makeup canvas!

I’m also going to say that I love a little bit of sex appeal in outfits like these, without overdoing it. The jean jacket adds a casual touch to this very form-fitting tank dress. The dress by itself looks a bit formal, so I’ve made a habit of wearing it with this jacket, flannels, or my Free People leather jacket to make it either edgy or more toned down.

I also want to mention my need to balance tighter fitting clothes with looser ones. If I go tight on the bottom, I’ll usually have a top that’s more relaxed so my look is a bit more easy-going. The tightness of the tank dress with the relaxed fit of the jacket is a great balance.

Neutrals are also something to consider when putting together these flirty looks. Black pieces make for very workable neutrals!

I want to make it known that I found this tank dress on discount in TJ Maxx over a year ago, and it is unfortunately sold out. I still left the link for inspiration! The RL jean jacket is no longer sold in stores, however, places like Ebay still have them available!
