Transforming Your Summer Wardrobe to Fall: Dresses

So most of you guys have summer dresses left over from, um, summer, right? Well, I'm going to show you some simple ways to wear those dresses in fall while still staying warm! All of the dresses are from Forever 21's Heritage 1981 line.
This dress is a perfect example of a dress that you can wear in any season! For fall, pair it with a cardigan of any color (I'm partial to gray, though). Use some silver pumps for a cute look, and complete the look with a nice silver clutch. For accessories, a statement necklace would look great.
I absolutely adore floral prints. The one thing you have to be careful about is when you wear it in the fall. Any designer will tell you that loud floral prints are saved for summer- quieter prints are perfect for fall. I chose this one because the colors aren't too bright, and the pattern isn't too busy. Pair it with a white t'shirt underneath and some medium wash skinny jeans for a cute look. Use some gladiators or boots for shoes. For accessories, use either long necklaces or bangle bracelets- not both!

Adorable dress, right? To carry this look into the fall, I would wear it with some tights or footless tights. If you're feeling bold, you can use some colored ones, but I think just some plain black footless tights would work beautifully. I would throw on a cardigan too- you decide, black, blue, white, red...the possibilities are endless! As for shoes, this is your opportunity to dress up or dress down the look. Pair it with Converse or flats for a more casual look, or stilettos or pumps for a look perfect for a night out. Accessorize with a large clutch and some long necklaces.
