STYLE ADVICE: Looking for smart casual outfits for my new pink Jigsaw jacket.

Posted on: April 7, 2015

QUESTION: I have bought this pale pink longline jacket from Jigsaw, £198, could you suggest some ideas on how to wear it smart casual and also for evening drinks/dinner occasions. I wear a uniform for work as a beauty therapist and normally wear ‘softer’ outerwear favouring jeans or slim trousers or dresses outside of work.

ANSWER: The jacket you’ve bought is a gorgeous springtime edition to any woman’s wardrobe, ideal for giving your outfit a stylish twist. If you take a look at your Dressipi Fashion Fingerprint, you’ll see which styles suit you best and why. For you it’s about balancing the proportion between your shoulder and hips, whilst creating gorgeous soft feminine curves.

1. Violeta dress, now £39.99: – The length of your new purchase sits around mid thigh, so bare this in mind when picking dresses. Look out for styles that sit just above your knee as it’s a really flattering length and sits nicely with the longline blazer. We love this marl jersey dress as it’s got a cozy feel about it, but can easily be dressed up with a pair of heeled ankle boots and a statement necklace:

2. Jigsaw jeans, now £79: – Straight slim jeans are the best shape for you as they hug in all the right places, giving a fantastic silhouette. A slightly darker denim shade is perfect for casual or smarter occasions. A mid-rise or high waist will flatter the and smooth the stomach:

3. Mint Velvet blouse, £59: – A lightly patterned blouse compliments your jacket and new jeans perfectly. The comfortable loose fit glides delicately over your tummy area and can be worn in an entirely different outfit tucked into an a-line skirt:

4. Whistles dress, £106.74: – As Whistles is one of your favourite brands, we thought we’d add this elegant shift dress to the mix, spot on for evening drinks or weekend parties. The black and white bold print will be a real statement piece against your new jacket, a wonderful mix of sophistication and style with a playful touch:

5. LK Bennet shoes, £210: – A blush coloured court is your go-to shoe and compliments the jeans/blouse combo as well as the Whistles dress. Neutral shades look fabulous all year round – just stick to a heel height you can walk in!

6. H&M earrings, £7.99 – Complete your evening outfit with a pair of chic earrings -we adore this jewelled pair as they add instant glamour to the simplest of dresses. Karen x
