You asked, we answered: What are some cute ways to wear our favorite summer dresses in the colder weather? — karl-and-coco
There are three easy ways to transition a summer dress into fall. I like to think about “The Three L’s: Legs, Layers, and Length.
Legs: When covering your legs, you don’t always need to find the thickest pair of knit tights. Lightweight materials will be fine, especially if you add a pair of over the knee boots. Basic black or dark brown tights can be worn with most outfits so grab a few quality pairs so you don’t have to do too much shopping.
Layers: Never forget to layer up. Jean jackets, heavy knit cardigans or warm wool blazers are the simplest options that will help keep you warm. Be prepared for the lightweight material of a summer dress to blow easily in the wind. It’s bound to happen. When layering, search for thick materials that won’t let any of that unwanted cold air in!
Length: If the summer dress your are searching for is above your knees (as most are), find a knit cardigan that stops at your waist. If you cinch your waist with a skinny belt, you’ll keep your shape visible beneath all of these chunky layers.
Hope this helps!

How to Make a T-Shirt Not Just a T-Shirt:
-MA JOR jewels ! Man Repeller is known for rocking super chill tees with massive, glam statement necklaces. In theory this seems like a weird mix, but as this girl shows, it’s totally fabulous.
-Something dressy on bottom. Skip the jeans and opt for something more fab. A leather skirt, coated skinnies and cool leggings are all great options. Get yourself out of the tee shirt+jeans=perfect mind frame.
-Add-ons ! Unexpected shoes, major makeup or a fabulous bag (or a combo of the three) can instantly upgrade your favorite tee.
Get yourself into the habit of dressing up t-shirts by preparing an outfit around a dressier top, then simply switch out said top for a chic tee. It’s an easy switch that makes you seem cool, but understated.

How to Wear: Grandpa Sweaters

With temperatures continuing to drop nows the time to start raiding your granddaddy’s closet. The chunky knits come in unique prints, which provides warmth and style. Worn with a pair of jeans or leggings, the look can stay extremely casual. Trying to dress one up? Add some cool earrings, a bold watch, a belted waist and fun hair.

Remember: the colder it gets, the more layers you’ll need. Feel free to wear a collared button down underneath and a pair of cozy tights with your favorite skirt. Grandpas old sweaters are meant to be slightly oversized, not excessively bulky. If you can’t find a fashionable hand me down, search LuLus and Forever 21 for some affordable options.

How To Wear: Jeffrey Campbell edition !
The first rule for wearing Jeffrey’s is don’t try too hard. Wear what comes natural to you; don’t try to work an outfit around your shoes (unless that how you normally pick your outfit).
The second rule is own them. Don’t let anyone convince that you don’t look great (EVER!).
