You don’t have to put away your summer dresses when the temperatures start to drop. The beauty of fall layering is that your summer clothes can be just as wearable as they were when temperatures were soaring. The key is just to pair them with different clothes. For summer, you would pair your minidress with strappy sandals and sunscreen. But for fall, you can pair the same dress with textured tights, ankle booties, and an oversized jacket. Here’s how to get the summer dress look this fall:
1. Start with the foundation of a warm weather minidress.
2. Keep your legs covered up with textured tights and ankle boots.
3. Layer on an oversized jacket, which contrasts with the slim fit of the minidress.
4. Finish off the look with a lightweight scarf (note how the small plaid echoes the larger buffalo check plaid pattern on the dress) and a handheld tote.
