Jacket/coat to go with this dress?

I'd like to buy this dress but am unsure what I would wear over it - jacket, cardigan, coat type thing? I have no idea. I'm not very fashionable blush, but I would like to be!

I'm a 22/24 but I don't know if I have a shape, per say (apart from lumpy). My shoulders are about the same width as my hips, maybe a bit wider. I have small boobs (or smaller than the makers of plus-size dresses think I should have) and not much of waist due to the aforementioned lumpiness.

I liked the look of the fur coat on another lindy bop thread, but I don't think I'd be stylish enough to pull it off!

The only thing I could imagine with that is a black shrug, like these:

or a short fur coat, something like these if you can find similar:

Lovely dress! I was just going to say short boxy fur jacket - I got one in Sainsbo's a few years ago, not sure if they have anything similar now.

(I think the US are two sizes behind ie. a US10 is a UK14 I believe)

Cream one which could work but 22 is out of stock right now:

THIS ONE is perfect and in stock in 22:

A cropped jacket hits at the narrowest part and gives the illusion of a smaller waist. smile I think this last one is a winner and you could wear it with other things!

That Deb one is oos sad You could call stores. The Monsoon one above is dearer but even more beautiful smile

Excellent, thank you! I like the boxier shape of that last one. Going to be hard to stop myself from stroking it now whilst wearing it.

Fur jackets have come back in, haven't they? Or did they never go? I remember when I was 14 or so I had a hideous big white fur jacket, think early 2000s Britney Spears sort of style. Ah, I did love it.

There do seem to be a lot of them about this season. I love that Monsoon one but I really love this from Jigsaw... The price puts it out of my range though:

How gorgeous is that!?!
Anyhow, if you get the Monsoon one you can relive your Britney days smile

Oh that looks so nice; I bet it would be loovely to stroke.

Maybe I should forgo the lindy bop dress and get that denim-on-denim dress she wore. grin
