It may be November but the weather on the east coast has been so up and down that I still have not been able to pack away my summer staples! One day it’s 40 degrees and the next it’s 75! For that reason, it can be tricky to figure out what to wear this time of year. Since the weather has been so crazy, I thought why not make the most of what is already in my closet by wearing my favorite summer dresses?
Summer dresses are the perfect item to bring you into the fall months because they are comfortable and so versatile! With a few good layering pieces, you can dress them up or dress them down.
Today I am wearing a dress showing you 6 different ways you can wear your favorite summer dresses in the fall.
Boots or leggings
Here I am wearing my Unisa Dedrii thigh high boots. I like that the length of the dress covers the top of the boot just a bit making these boots more wearable for the daytime. If thigh-high boots aren’t your thing just throw on a pair of leggings and your choice of boots!
You can’t go wrong with a denim jacket for the fall. It adds just enough warmth and gives a cool vibe to your dress. If you really wanna mix it up, try a distressed denim jacket with your dress to add a little toughness!
Chambray or Flannel Shirt
For days where the weather is mild, you can simply throw on your favorite chambray or flannel shirt. Add a pair of cute booties and you’re ready for anything.
Long sleeve shirt
For those colder days simply throw on a long sleeved tee shirt under your dress to stay cozy and warm. This super soft tee is from Everlane and it’s just thin enough to wear under this fitted dress. You can also try experimenting with different styles of shirts like a turtleneck!
I have a love affair with scarves! They are so cozy, chic and perfect for the autumn months! A blanket scarf is big enough to keep you warm throughout the day but also convenient since you can simply remove it if the weather starts to warm up.
Sweater or Cardigan
Here I decided to switch it up a bit and transform my dress into a skirt by wearing a cropped sweater over it. If cropped sweaters aren’t your thing you can substitute with a cardigan and maybe even a skinny belt to complete the look.
