I have to admit I never thought I would become such a dress stan. There’s something undeniably satisfying about opting for a dress in the morning and completing your look with the right accessories. It's like an extra boost of confidence. Just because temperatures are starting to drop, I’m not saying goodbye to my favorite wardrobe staple. I’m simply swapping my tied bow straps and crisp white linen dresses with long-sleeve ones.
From billowing floral frocks and high-neck babydolls to snug sweaterdresses, the options are endless this season. If you’re like me and have a hard time letting go of summer, try easing into fall with an airy pastel-colored maxi or a vibrant velvet floral number. The best part about the weather transition? (Yes, there is an upside to winter in New York.) It’s all about styling the dress with your other go-to fall essentials. Trade in your strappy sandal and take a hint from Gigi or Kendall on how to get creative styling your dress with this season’s most coveted boots. Also, try layering a fitted turtleneck or a statement cardigan to brace yourself for the colder months ahead. It’s time to invest in your new fall wardrobe staple.
