Since summer doesn’t surrender so easily, the first days of fall can be rather warm. That’s good news for those who don’t want to give up summer attire just like that. And for a fashionable fall, there must be room for dresses in your wardrobe. They’ll go perfectly with sunny fall days but also when the temperature drops.
On the following page, find out which model suits your body type best:
Max Out Transitional Outfits
The so-called transitional dresses suitable for this period are a score because they easily fit into summer and fall outfits. During sunny autumn days, a combination of bright-colored dresses and a denim jacket or cardigan in a darker shade is an excellent choice for leisure outfits.
You can make this attire more professional by putting on a long blazer in a neutral color that you can pair with a belt and flats. For a night out, you can rock your floral or dotted transitional dress with chunky boots and a leather jacket.
Wrap Up in a Sweater
When summer begins to lose its battle with chilly days and rain, it’s time to tuck in and adapt your outfit to lower temperatures. Of course, dresses can still be very present in your everyday attire; opt for thicker materials, such as knitwear or crochet.
Sweater dresses come in different models, lengths, and knit types (more details here). Apart from being very practical and easy to fit, they’re super warm and cozy. And when paired with comfortable shoes, you can wear these knitted or crocheted pieces all day long.
For example, a simple fitted knee-length rib-knit dress can be your go-to for all occasions, from a business meeting to a romantic date. For daytime options, you can pair it with flats, classic stilettos, or mid-calf boots. As you slide into the night, put knee-high camel leather boots on to “relax” outfit and make it suitable for dinner dates and casual gatherings.
A chunky crocheted dress with a roll collar, leather boots, and a bomber jacket is an ideal choice for long walks on fall days. Play around with this outfit by adding patterned tights. But in case your knitwear already has a heavy pattern, just go with plain beige or black tights.
Neutrals are the colors of autumn because they perfectly mimic the fall landscape, which is slowly preparing for winter sleep. So, for this season, neutral colors must have a place in your wardrobe. Go with beige and brown, but also a bit bolder shades, such as charcoal, olive green, and taupe.
If you’re not prone to fashion experiments, a simple, monochromatic dress with matching shoes and accessories of contrasting colors is an excellent way to nail any autumn look. This can be an excellent choice when you’re in a hurry and don’t want to overthink color matching.
But if you want to avoid a plain look, you can combine neutrals. If you pair them with each other, you can’t go wrong with most combinations, especially if you match darker and lighter shades. For example, you can try to combine a light charcoal chunky sweater dress and a large light-gray shawl – an excellent and cozy outfit for all day long.
You might want to avoid the brown and black combo, as it might look too dark, but in case one of these comes in a pattern, it can be a score. If you’re bold, a brown-beige zig-zag patterned dress paired with a black leather jacket is a nice fall combo to try. For a dash of luxury, opt for a leather jacket with fur details.
Embrace vintage style during colder months and fashionably teleport to the 60s and 70s. Midi or maxi long-sleeve cute boutique fall dresses in different patterns combined with faux fur vests or denim jackets, berets, and white boots or even sneakers (for more casual versions) are typical looks from this era that are super trendy today.
You can bring a dash of the disco era to your fall attire with sequin dresses. These pieces aren’t just for night outs and late dates, but they can be perfectly combined for daily variants that call for some glam. They can be an excellent choice for daytime fall events like engagements or wedding receptions.
For example, a knee-length sequin dress with long sleeves (kimono style or puffy ones) is elegant and can easily be combined for daily events. Opt for brighter materials that are glamorous yet “calmer” like mint, beige, matte gold, or petal pink. Pair them with matching shoes and accessories that aren’t glittery and shiny, as they’re more suitable for daytime parties.
Dresses are a very grateful and flexible piece of clothing, even during the colder seasons. Depending on your style, you can combine them any way you want and always look great. Not to mention supreme comfort, casualness, and warmth – everything you need from your fall outfit.
