Hello wise bees!
so, my dress is strapless and I loved it at the time but as the big day draws closer, I’m crushing on sleeves, at least for the ceremony
I’d love an off the sleeve jacket similar to the 2nd photo above. All these types of jackets though have buttons which do up at the back. Herein lies the problem – my dress has a corset back! Will the buttons on the jacket then the lace of the corset look completely ridiculous? I found one image where it had been done and it looks ok (top pic)?! But guess the buttons would need to be quite small/delicate rather than fabric buttons? Any advice is very appreciated

Jen67: I think it will look great even with fabric buttons.

Jen67: I totally would not mind buttons. My dress is corset and if the jacket ends up having buttons – so be it.

It wouldn’t be much different than a button front shirt and a jacket with a zipper. They don’t have to match perfectly and I think it looks pretty together. It also has an edge of style because you can see that it didn’t come together but that you made the conscious decision to put them together. You’re fashion forward.

Definitely go for the lacy bolero! This was mine! X
