How To Layer Under (And Over!) Your Dress This Autumn

Fall is a tricky season. Mornings we rejoice in the crisp air that fills our lungs and enjoy the crunch of leaves but by afternoon the temperatures can be warm enough to make us regret our outfits made to hunker down for the winter. Layering with dresses is the perfect transition solution for the Summer to Autumn temperature conundrum because they not only make it easy to adapt to what the day brings but also get more wear out of your favorite summer staples. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite layering ideas:

Maxi dresses shouldn’t be reserved just for summer nights at cookouts! Layer with a long cardigan and a scarf cinched in with a cute belt to keep the look long and lean and extend the life of your favorite summer maxi.

With dropping temperatures comes rain, dresses layered with rain boots and a matching cardigan keep you dry and stylish. No more soaking wet jean hemlines!

Don’t leave the bright colors out just because the leaves are turning. Add a structure blazer to elevate a casual dress and make it pop with stacks of jewelry to stand out from the crowd.

Adding a fitted button down under a summer frock keeps you warm but is also a welcome unexpected twist.

Boots and dresses go hand in hand for a reason! You can pile on a jacket, tights, and a scarf for added warmth or tone it down if the sun comes out.

Love chunky sweaters but unsure how to wear them? Over a dress belted with matching accessories brings grandpa’s sweater to new heights.

What’s your favorite way to transition dresses into Fall? Happy Dresstember, ladies!
