How to Wear Your Summer Dress During the Fall

43 Ways to Bring Your Summer Dress Into Fall, So No Look Gets Left Behind

Our summer dresses have gotten us through the past few months, and we couldn't bear to leave them in the dust just yet. Our breezy house dresses made for great selfies; our nap dresses made for great, well, naps. And really, it's pretty simple to transition these dresses into the cooler months, as long as you use the right accessories and add enough layers. Even though this fall looks plenty different when it comes to street style, if creating outfits is part of who you are, you'll still want to dress up for yourself — and of course to shield yourself from the cooler breeze.

So bring on the sweaters and start thinking of ways to fashion your button-down on top of your slips. And maybe stow away your slides and basket bag — just for now! You'll be able to come back to these staples later, and we're sure you'll want to (especially if you bought any of these pieces during lockdown). The silver lining is that you can still take your summer dresses outside when you pull from any of the 43 ideas we've gathered. Go ahead and find the look that speaks to your personal style, and give your dress the autumnal twist it deserves before saying goodbye for the colder months.
