Pair a short dress with a blazer for year-round style

"A sleek, short dress is a great way to add a bit of sex appeal to any night out, but as the weather cools down, some women may hang their minis in the back of their closets until springtime rolls around once again.

A sleek, short dress is a great way to add a bit of sex appeal to any night out, but as the weather cools down, some women may hang their minis in the back of their closets until springtime rolls around once again.

Instead of burying that little gown in the back of your closet to hibernate, why not pair the dress with a lovely blazer and rock the ensemble as the temperature drops?

Actress Kate Walsh looked stunning as she stepped out on the red carpet for the Disney and ABC Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, California. The Private Practice star wore a mocha-colored short dress that showed off her fantastic figure and toned legs. Instead of draping a delicate shawl across her shoulders, however, Walsh opted for a white blazer with rolled-up sleeves.

While some cover-ups can overwhelm the delicacy of a short dress, the blazer complemented the ensemble perfectly, as the light color and slouchy sleeves kept the jacket from seeming overly structured.

Blazers are also a great way to add a touch of conservative-style to an otherwise revealing number. Throw a fitted jacket over your short dress for dinner, and then take off the blazer when you're ready to go out dancing!"
