Take it down just a notch with a denim jacket

Going out on the town is fun and all, but what if you had the option to alternate between looking super jazzed up and appropriately semi-formal? If you're getting ready for a big to-do or a night-crawl in the near future, consider what a bit of layering can do for that chic dress you've got picked out.

Victoria Justice and Keira Knightley both layered denim jackets on top of their dresses recently, and the end result was something we couldn't resist commenting on. They were at once glammed up and casually chic, which is not a balance that's necessarily easy to strike but can be a winning look for that after-hours fete you've got coming up on your calendar.

This is a perfect choice to dress down any LBD, but it goes just as well with colorful minis and maxis. Just be sure to match the denim color to the overall mood of your look. You wouldn't want your layering to look all out of place - remember, distressed denim, not a distressed fashionista.
