How To Wear Dresses For Fall

how to wear dresses for fall

How to wear dresses for fall. Sigh. I feel like transition season is slowly coming upon us. This past week has been dreary and windy and cold, to say the least. The only problem is that, no matter how much I love the fall, I’m not quite ready to give up on my summer clothes just yet. I have a few pretty dresses that I just can’t put away and besides, during the day the weather is much too warm to pull out my wool pieces.

Layer. Thin dress? No problem. There’s no need to put it away just yet, simply reach for a light cardigan and you are good to go during those cool mornings before the sun has had time to heat up the air. When you can’t get away with a sweater, turn to a structured jacket. I always love a pretty patterned floral dresse combined with the edginess of a moto jacket.

Update your footwear. Sure my sandals may not be coming out of the closet, but a great pair of booties is the perfect answer to a fabulous dress. As the weather gets cooler just trade them in for a pair of your favourite boots, a big cozy scarf and an oversized pair of sunnies for a glam look.

Wear tights. When it’s just a little too cold to go bare legged, opt for a great pair of tights. They’ll keep you warm and it’s the ideal way to extend the life of your summer dress. I love a longer tunic top with a pair of opaque tights and a great pair of chunky heels.

Today’s inspirations come from Joules, an iconic British label. The beautiful prints on their tunic dresses are a great way to keep a hint of summer surrounding me while I welcome the change in the weather. Even though I predict that there will still be plenty of warm days ahead for most of us, this is also a great time to start planning some fantastic fall outfits!

How do you wear your dresses during the fall?

  1. Chelsea Marrs (@ChowDownUSA)

    Love the idea for booties paired with big scarf & sunnies! It’s also nice to rock a pullover sweater atop a cute dress 😀


    Chelsea | Chow Down by the Bay

    1. Yes! A chunky sweater over a dress is a fantastic idea. Thank you!!!

  2. It really is all about the layering. I about to go into spring and so this is perfect post!
    x Kirsty

  3. The blue dress on the left side is gorgeous and perfect for fall. Layering is a good idea 🙂

    1. I totally fell in love with those dresses, I want them all!

  4. Yay to layering! I wouldn’t make it thru fall without doing that. I love the idea of adding a structure piece too, completely changes the look and feel of the dress.
    Fall is one of my favourite seasons, it’s always so pretty and theres just something about how the air smells too. However, I could live without the cold weather!

    xo, Jackie

    1. Oh I’m so glad you said all those lovely things about fall! Sometimes I think I’m the only one who loves this time of year.

  5. Hope Howland (@HHDesigns)

    Love the chunky heel you posted!!

    1. Thanks! I knew I wanted to include it the minute I saw it

    2. Thanks! I knew I wanted to include it the minute I saw it.

  6. I love this post! I’m already using these tricks as I live in a place where summer is super short! Awesome sets too!

    1. Thank you! I know, summer here seems to be going away…

  7. very beautiful sets,love the 2°

    1. Thank you so much!

  8. Canada + fall dresses = always opting for tights. Sigh. I am so not ready for cooler temperatures. Super cute photo collages though! I love how you put each look with a setting!


  9. Great tips! I pretty much wear them the way you instruct us here….I wear them with boots and tights!

    1. Thanks so much! I love a great transition dress with boots and tights.

  10. Really stylish looks… but I’m still in a summer mood 😉

    1. Oh so am I but the weather here isn’t agreeing with either one of us!

  11. Great ideas Caroline! Unfortunately we dont have much of a fall season here. Days are really hot and nights are chilly! A cardi is good enough till you have a few drinks haha

    1. Of course I’m sure there are many places where this doesn’t apply. This is the first time I’m experiencing a real fall in a while!

    1. Yes! Ha! I love layering.

  12. in love with this article… dresses rock

    1. Awe thanks! I really appreciate it.

  13. I like the moodboards you used to accompany this pieces, really gives you a feel of the current weather- tsigh. I’m for the nautical stripes and red trench look- tres chic!
