Transition #4: Lace Dress in Fall

Well, officially COLD in NY which makes this end to my mini-series on transition pieces very aptly timed! I love a little lace, since I dress on the urban side, a little lace adds femininity and sexiness and for Summer it’s a natural choice. But I have to say I LOVE lace during the colder months too–lace brings a dreamy unexpected texture to fall outfits that I really really dig. So here are some ways to rock a lace dress in Fall, enjoy!

Tips-How to Wear a Lace Dress in Fall:

  • Wear a Shirt Under!: I love this unexpected combo! Brings a little sharpness to a lace dress too–totally want to try this look.
  • Add Skinny Jeans or Leggings: Keep the silhouette slim underneath with skinny jeans or maybe some faux leather leggings, totally gives a lace dress new life.
  • Treat Your Dress like a Skirt: DIES for this sweater and slip like lace dress combo. The juxtaposition with the heavy textile really makes the lace shine. LOVE!
  • Throw a Jacket/Blazer on It: This might be the obvious choice, I actually wear denim jackets like blazers a lot in the fall–totally one of my favorite secret weapons.

    This is GREAT! What I’ve noticed as I’m traveling is that just because you travel a lot does NOT mean that you can’t look cute. I am struggling to find ways to look cute without taking up too much space in my backpack and dresses are the perfect compromise 🙂
