Whether a jeans jacket or a biker thrown over a girly dress or skirt gives a bit of toughness to the feminine outfit, balancing the look. It is an excellent styling trick that allows you to wear a satin dress to work, for example. The jacket also allows you to start wearing dresses even before spring. Finish your look with ankle boots like a true Londoner.
