A great way to get more wear out of your summer dresses is to layer up on them for fall. Not all of them will transition, but most will if you style them correctly.
The simple stripe tee shirt dress I wore on the 4th of July was easily transformed into a less patriotic look by adding a jacket, hat, and bootie.
Here is what I wore:
Dress: Golden Tote // Jacket: Express (NBC's Fashion Show 2013 design) // Bag: Rachel Zoe (similar) // Shoes: Dolce Vita // Hat: Victoria's Secret // Ring: Shop Jules // Sunnies: Prada
This outfit was perfect for my busy day filled with doctor appointments, a meeting, and then dinner with my in-laws.
By the end of the day I had ditched the hat & jacket (it warmed up a bit mid day). That is probably my favorite thing about layers, you can take some off or add some depending on the weather throughout the day.
Do you wear some of your summer dresses year round to get more wear out of them?
Are you big on layering your looks?
