Sure the outside temps might not scream “fall” – but bear with me dear reader, fall really is just around the corner. And while the weather may not reflect the upcoming seasonal change yet, at least our closets can.
Transitional dressing can be a bit of a tricky business. While the mornings may cool down to more fall-friendly temperatures, the afternoons can still hike up to rather heated summer highs. And don’t even get us started on the unpredictability of seasonal showers. So how do you update your wardrobe correctly? styling from summer to autumn? Our seasonal secret is none other than a dress.
