Go for a blazer. It adds a nice edge to the more feminine bows and pearls.
I think a cardigan might dress it down a bit, and I can’t imagine a “formal” cardigan without thinking matronly.
Try any sort of bolero or more cropped jacket. Something lightweight, maybe a-line, or even with 3/4-sleeves might be a fun twist that no one else would wear. I love the idea of this ISLII cropped blazer, but I’m not certain it suits the occasion.posted about 6 years ago
I agree with the blazer! It can be long sleeve and scrunched up to be 3/4. Very chic with a prom dress.posted about 6 years ago
