With the idea that the cold days are almost here, I started to think and come up with ideas to make my favorite summer looks work for the upcoming season. Normally I just pair them with tights and a cute cardigan, but this off-the-shoulder dress was giving me a little bit of trouble! I tried a few different things but the big skirt and light color were not working out with my usual pieces. Lightweight jackets would fall awkwardly over the dress and a top underneath was the most unflattering thing ever.
And then, one awesome day someone on Instagram suggested a denim jacket! Such a great idea! I especially love that my denim jacket has a cropped fit as it works great with this elastic waistband dress. You might be wondering: It is an off the shoulder dress? How do you put on a jacket with sleeves on? Because my dress also has an elastic upper part, I decided to wear it as a strapless dress. This made it more comfortable underneath the denim jacket. Because it is not that cold yet, I styled this outfit with my beloved Old Navy clogs – which I wish I had purchase more of as all the similar shoes are either too heavy or too pricey!
Do you have any plans on how to transition your favorite summer dresses into fall?
