Tips On How To Style Your Fall Dress
As the weather cools down, it’s time to start thinking about how to style your dresses for fall. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your fall dresses:
Layer up: One of the best ways to transition your dresses from summer to fall is by layering them under other pieces. Try pairing your dress with a chunky sweater or cardigan, or why not a denim jacket.
Add tights: Tights are a great way to keep warm while still being able to wear your favourite dresses. Choose a thick pair of tights in a dark color to really make your outfit pop.
Go for boots: Boots are the ultimate footwear choice for fall, and they can really elevate your dress game. opt for a pair of knee-high or ankle boots to really show off those legs. Boots can also change the dynamic of the whole look.
Accessorize: Fall is the perfect time to break out all those cute scarves, hats, and gloves you’ve been dying to wear. Use accessories to add a little extra warmth and personality to your outfit. Jewelry also comes into play, and for the fall winter 2023 season we have seen jewellery pieces integrated as part of the design (the metal hands on the Coperni look opening our story) and at times the same is sawn into the garment itself. Making the fall dress a jewellery piece in its own right.
Experiment with colors and prints: Fall is the perfect time to experiment with darker colors and richer prints. Don’t be afraid to try something new and explore shifting from your comfort zone.
Lace up: Lace is back this season, with top Parisian catwalks to New York Fashion Week lace was everywhere and it is here to stay. Buying a lace dress is surely a worthy investment, as the trend has most potential to repeat in seasons to come.
The Best Fall Dress For Every Body Type
Thankfully fashion houses are more body inclusive than ever. Thus, you can feel confident and stylish all season long no matter your body type.
For Petite Figures: A midi dress with a defined waist and structured fabric will flatter your petite frame. Look for a dress with a deep v-neckline to create the illusion of height, and pair it with heels or flats to customize your look.
For Hourglass Figures: Show off your curves in an A-line dress that cinches at the waist and skims over your hips and thighs. Choose a bold print or color that makes you feel confident and emphasizes your shapely figure.
For Apple Shapes: Find an empire waist dress that fits snugly through the chest, then flows away from the body below the bust line. This type of dress can make you feel comfortable while still flattering your upper body curves.
For Pear Shapes: Go for a fit-and-flare silhouette that has more room in the hip area but is still fitted through the waist. The extra fabric around the hips will balance out your proportions and make you look proportionate from head to toe.
No matter what body type you are working with, you’re sure to find something stylish this season. Whether you’re petite or plus-size, hourglass-shaped or pear-shaped, there’s a Fall dress out there for you.
