Throwing a biker jacket over a dress is one of my favourite ways to toughen up a look and stop a dress from looking too pretty. I love the ladylike hem length on this dress. Almost all of the dresses/skirts in my closet are short with maybe one or two floor length pieces so it's nice to add some variety.
P.S Thank you all for the lovely comments and words of encouragement. I wish there was a way to directly reply to all your comments. I read and appreciate them all!
