In search of dressy jackets to wear over a dress

Q. I am wearing a beautiful green one shoulder Badgley Mischka dress to a holiday party this weekend, but am afraid I’ll get cold and will need a sweater or jacket. I have no idea what would look good with this dress, because it comes in tight at the waist, flares out at the hips and the fabric is a flowing chffon. I will be wearing open toe Miu Miu gold shoes and thought either a cardigan or a short jacket perhaps? What color, and what style? Help!

A. Since you seem like a stylish gal, no ordinary cardigan or jacket will do. This season, we’re loving little sequin jackets and boleros or faux fur capes and chubbies over dressy dresses. Since you are wearing gold shoes, something in the gold or cream family would look rich and elegant. You can also opt for a neutral like black, brown or tan. Any of the styles below would look gorgeous with your green dress.
