Hi there. I will e wearing this dress for a wedding the first week of June. The wedding is in Copenhagen: www.veryexclusive.co.uk/whistles-textured-dress-orange/1600053855.prd?crossSellType=item_page.recs_1
I canot work out what to wear as a jacket/coverup. I have black and navy blazers but they look too harsh.
My shoes and clutch are gold.
I like the Chanel style jackets but not sure if they'll go, and also what colour?
Ideally I would like to buy something that I can wear to work, budget around £100 or more if it's a good quality staple. Cheers

That's a lovely dress.
I think a Chanel-style jacket would go really well. Zara have navy one but the buttons are silver, so perhaps not ideal if you're wearing gold. www.zara.com/uk/en/woman/blazers/tweed-jacket-c797504p3524025.html
A cream one would also look nice but I can't spot one immediately.

ASOS have a nice pale one but hard to tell how metallic it is. You need to search 'Glamorous Jacket in Metallic Tweed' as I can't make the link work.

Alternatively, there are few listed on Shopstyle here.

Ooh I love the idea of a Chanel style jacket. That's something I would definitely wear to work. I'd like it to be of good quality and well fitted so I am afraid that rules out Zara, Mango and let;s be honest, Asos own brand. Boden have a pretty one but I worry it will be too boxy on me as I am only 5.2": www.boden.co.uk/en-gb/womens-coats-jackets/jackets/we539/womens-chepstow-jacket
