Spring 2017 is all about the long, feminine dress; just one look at this season’s street style snaps and you’ll see what we mean. From the streets of New York to Milan, industry insiders have been rocking ladylike maxi dresses at Fashion Week- but with a twist. Whether a leather moto or bomber, the freshest way to wear your flowy frock, according to the fashion crowd, is with a sporty, tough jacket to cut the sweetness. If you want to take the look for a test drive without draining your wallet, we’ve shopped out three can’t-fail, combos of under $100 favorites below.
Maxi + Varsity jacket
A maxi with a soft, vintage vibe gets a modern update with a varsity-inspired bomber. The pink jacket keeps the look feminine but cool.
Lace + Moto
Sheer, lacy details on bottom are totally balanced out by moto vibes up top. A cropped leather jacket keeps the proportions just right.
Floral + Bomber
A romantic floral dress looks urban and current when mixed with a sporty, nylon bomber. Try pairing with ankle boots for an extra boho cool finish.
