Fall is coming up, but that doesn’t mean we should put away our dresses! Who says wearing a dress during autumn can’t be done? I know it’s tempting to always go for the comfy look with a sweater and pair of leggings.
But don’t let that stop you from getting fancy with a dress. I’ve compiled a list of 10 ways that you can keep wearing dresses this fall, so you can put your dresses to use and look fancy year-round!
1. Slip Dress With Basic Tee Underneath
A simple way to wear a dress this fall is by wearing a simple white t-shirt underneath a cute slip dress. It’s more of a casual look, but you can still dress it up and look fancy if you want to. It’s an easy way to transition summer attire to fall attire. The t-shirt will help keep your shoulders warm and provides an extra layer to the thin slip material.
2. Throw A Sweater On Top
One of the easiest ways to transition a dress into the fall season is by throwing an oversized sweater on top of it. The dress then acts like a cute skirt and the sweater keeps you warm and cozy as it starts to get colder outside. You can dress this outfit up for a more fancy look, or dress it down to keep it casual.
3. Pair A Sweater Dress With Knee-High Boots
It’s finally time for you to rock those knee-high boots that you’ve been waiting all year to wear. A great way to wear a dress this fall is to combine it with a pair of super long boots. If you got the legs for them, I suggest you flaunt them with this getup that will make you feel extra fancy.
Stock up on tights this fall so you can wear all the dresses your heart desires. Wearing tights underneath your dress keeps your legs protected from the chilly weather, and they easily turn any dress into fall attire. Fancy or casual, you’ll want to make sure you have a good pair of thick tights to keep you from getting cold.
5. Faux Fur Coat
Oh, you’re feeling fancy, huh? Style your dress with a faux fur coat and go be bougie with your girls this fall. You’ll feel warm and fuzzy, but still look fancy as hell!
6. Wrap a Plaid Shawl Around You
Plaid is a great pattern that we see pop up even more during the fall season. A great way to wear a dress, more specifically a tight-fitting dress is by wrapping a plaid shawl around you. It adds that fall element that your dress needs. Plus, it’ll keep you warm and comfy as it starts to get chilly outside.
7. Opt For Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses are specially made to be worn year-round. They’re long enough to keep your legs from being too exposed to the lowering temperatures. You can pair them with some cute heeled booties to make it even more appropriate for the fall.
8. Wear A Sweater Underneath
You can pair a super cute overall dress with a sweater underneath this fall and still look totally fancy. Overall dresses are really trendy and versatile. A soft turtleneck sweater underneath a corduroy overall dress just screams fall fashion.
9. Keep Your Dress Colors Dark
A great way to keep wearing dresses in the fall and look trendy and fancy is by making sure you’re wearing dresses that match the color palette of the season. Go for maroons, oranges, browns, navy blues, and black dresses to make styling outfits way easier.
10. Layer! Layer! Layer!
The best way to wear a dress this fall and look totally fancy is by layering! Not only will it keep you warm, but fall is all about adding. More is more when it comes to wearing a dress in the fall.
That t-shirt underneath your slip dress just isn’t enough! Hang a jean or leather jacket over your shoulders to make it a little more extra. Don’t be afraid to add pieces onto your outfit to style your dress more appropriately for fall.
