In the sun it’s warm and toasty. In the shade it’s cool and breezy. One day its freezing and the next day it’s hot as heck. Even though things are cooling off here in Florida, the weather is very fickle this season. It’s pretty much a hot/cool mess, if you get my drift.
I think dresses might be the easiest transitional pieces to style when the weather is so inconsistent. I've been dying to wear this dress and missed my opportunity in the spring so I made sure that it would make a grand appearance for fall. This dress has such an awesome golden mustard yellow hue and the floral detail is perfect for each season. It was definitely a great buy from Amazon. A bonus is that it is midi length which can also cater to the summer!
On the day I did this shoot, it was super windy. It took several shots to get my hair to cooperate. Coat too...and dress for that matter. I’m just happy we were able to get some good ones for this post! If you’re as confused as the weather and you don’t know what to wear, here are a few tips to style a midi dress in transitional weather.
Wearing jeans under a midi or maxi dress is a trend right now and I’ve loved this layering trick for a while. It gives a more casual vibe to a dress when you want your outfit to make a statement but you don’t want to seem too overdressed. Other layering pieces include: a crisp white button down, opaque tights, or a long cardigan.
Mix & Match Seasonal Accessories
For Spring/Fall weather, wear with a denim jacket, straw handbag, and booties. For Fall/Winter weather wear with a coat, boots or booties, and a fedora hat. I didn’t even bother with a hat for these pictures because the wind wouldn’t let me be great!
Bonus Styling Tip:
Throw a chunky knit sweater on top give the dress an appearance of a skirt, pair with over the knee boots and voila a new outfit has come to life!
