How often do you pull out your summer pieces during the Fall and Winter?
I used to be a firm believer in separating the two wardrobes, but I’ve changed my ways (and you should too)!
Your ultimate secret weapon this Fall season? Those Summer dresses you’ve been hiding from yourself since August.
Here’s how I take my Summer dresses from day trips to the park to lattes in the city:
dress- the rag machine // sweater- GAP men’s // shoes- Gap // bag- miniso
Rule number one? Opt for darker colouring into the cooler weather. I snagged this dress from my local thrift for a great price since people tend to neglect the lightweight dresses this time of year. The orange, cream and black colouring bring on all the fall feels.
Layers are your best friend when trying to bring a more autumnal feel to your look. Pair a knit sweater with a flowy dress to not only add structure, but also up that cozy factor majorly.
Finally, it’s all in the accessories. A faux leather cross body bag and a pair of “borrowed from the boys” loafers make this look perfect for a fall walk into town. The tiniest addition of some sparkly gold details on my fingers give this dress a new lease on life.
My go-to for gold details has been Aurate, as of late. I’ve been paroozing the pages of their site and I’ve got a major girl crush on their soft, feminine aesthetic. Shop some of my favourites like this sweet little ring or this classically chic collar.
