Good morning! We wanted to chat today about how easy it can be to style your “summer dress” and make it totally appropriate and on point for fall because we all want to get as many chances as possible to wear the dresses that we love! We went ahead and broke down how to re-style dresses into easy to follow steps so you can re-create some of these looks with dresses you already have.
Step 1: Decide the overall style and feel of the dress. If it’s more casual, you can easily pair it with more casual pieces, more dressy equals more dressy pieces. You can mix and match dressy and casual but it can be harder to make it look intentional.
Step 2: Pick out a jacket that fits the style. Blazers will make just about any dress feel a little dressier while denim jackets will give you that dressed-down feel. Leather moto jackets are huge this year and give off an effortless cool vibe which actually work well with large floral print dresses (another big 2016 trend).
Step 3: Find boots/ close-toed shoes that coordinate. This is important because the outfit will not look intentional if you have a jacket and you’re still rocking flip flops. Well, maybe in California but anywhere else, look for a great set of pumps or booties. *The easiest shoes to pair with dresses in colder seasons are ankle boots.
Step 4: Add basic accessories. Because you’re layering with a blazer, you don’t have to wear chunky statement jewelry to complete an outfit. Simple jewelry has been a trend for a few years now and we don’t see it going out of style anytime soon. Throw on a thin set of bangles or a delicate necklace and you’re good to go.
Hope you all are having a great week! We’ll announce the winner of the ShineProject Giveaway on Friday with our steals and deals post!
