Today's blog post is about how to take our shorter-style dresses into the Fall and even winter months.
So, the dress we are using as an example is the beautiful jewel-toned Ava Tiered Dress in Forrest Green. The satin-like material is excellent for this season's special occasions.
In the fall and winter months, you will most likely see me in taller boots to help keep me warm while wearing dresses and skirts. So, one of the easiest ways to style a dress for cooler temperatures is by adding tall boots to your outfit. So, with this first look, I have the dress as is but then added a cognac-colored belt to match the tall cowboy boots I chose to wear. I decided on gold-colored earrings to add warmth to the top portion of my outfit.
Adding a long-sleeved top underneath my dress is the second way to stay warm. In this case, I chose a black lace mesh top. As you may have noticed, I folded in the neckline of this dress to showcase the mesh top and necklace. This is a fun and easy way to change up some of your dresses by simply adjusting the neckline. I added some black studded combat boots to give this a bit of an edgier look. Adding black tights underneath this dress would add more warmth to this outfit if needed.
The last outfit is kind of a combination of the top two tips, along with adding a wild rag. I chose to put my denim button-up shirt underneath my dress and picked some slouchy-style tall boots. I decided on a complimentary colored wild rag to add around my neck for an accessory. I then put my cowboy hat on to add that final touch that this look needed. For cooler temps, a felt hat would be more practical. I just don't have one in the style I wanted for this outfit……yet ;)
To sum up, what you can do to carry your dresses through the cooler months is:
- Incorporate your tall boots
- Layer long sleeve tops underneath your dress
- Choose warm accessories like scarves, hats, tights, or dress socks.
I hope this helps, and I can't wait to see what you all do! ~Brooke
