How to Wear Your Summer Dresses into Fall and Winter


The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are dropping and the denim and boots are coming out—it must be fall! Don’t rush to put away your summer dresses just yet though. There are plenty of easy ways to style your favorites so you can still wear them through fall and winter. We’ve included our tips below, along with examples from some fashionable Instagrammers of how to make it work IRL.

LAYER LIKE YOU’VE NEVER LAYERED BEFORE

Have a sleeveless dress you’re not ready to lose somewhere in the back of your closet? Not a problem! Wear a sweater or long sleeve button-up under your dress so you can wear it out in cooler temperatures.
