take your summer dresses into fall with these 3 style essentials

As summer is coming near it’s end, I’m trying to determine how my summer dresses can work through the fall and maybe even in the winter. Most of my sundresses and beach cover-ups are being put away, but I have many floral, lace, and white dresses (and even skirts) that can easily be worn year long. These are my 3 fall style essentials that I’m going to be using to complement my summer dresses and make them fall/winter friendly. the ankle bootie

The ankle bootie is the perfect cold weather friendly complement to a pretty lace or floral skirt or dress. It also adds a bit of edge to a feminine outfit.

  1. This is such a true and useful post! I love the ankle boot/summer dress look – it’s perfect for transitioning weather. I guess it could work transitioning from spring to summer too! xo

  2. Excellent suggestions! I have far too many dresses in general – especially summer dresses – and I have trouble wearing many of them often enough. I think a nice pair of tights can also be useful for those chilly days.

  3. I love this post! And you’re absolutely right, with the 3 essentials you named above you can definitely wear you summer dresses in the fall.
