Jackets to wear with midi dresses (Office)

What type of smart jackets work with midi dresses ? I bought a couple of shift and shirt style dresses for the office but when I attempted to wear with my blazers (eg. Arket hopsack) it looked a bit swamped/proportionally wrong - how can I style these ?

Office on the smarter side and I’m 6-8 and 5ft 7

I think a cropped boucle style jacket is a great option, have a look at Me+Em, I love this cream and navy one and a classic navy would be a useful investment.

I love cropped jackets or even you could try a cropped blazer if you like that style.
I have a little beige suede one from Maje and a white quilted one from Sea NY that I live in.
This one is on my wish list!

Ba&sh is also great for cropped jackets, I think this one would be so versatile

I quite like this cropped jacket at H&M: https://www2.hm.com/en_gb/productpage.0988242005.html

I also have one from Rouje I love. Amazing quality but definitely on the pricier end x

A belted style can work well to add some shape too

Massimo dutti have great jackets for things like this. They’re also very versatile

I have just ordered this for the office & loving it for this season - https://www.zara.com/uk/en/longline-bomber-jacket-with-patch-pockets-p03509744.html?v1=260493538&v2=2184217

if you’re not loving the look with a blazer or things are feeling a little to oversized, perhaps cinch things in with a belt to add a bit of shape back?

Alternatively fully agree with trying a cropped/twill jacket - such a chic style. x
