What To Wear Now: Summer To Fall Dressing

We at Real Style Network are not quite ready to say goodbye to some of our favorite summer pieces – think floral dresses and straw fedoras – and thanks to fall’s nomadic layering trend, we don’t have to. A recurring theme in fall collections from Catherine Malandrino to Rag & Bone to John Galliano, seasonless dressing is a practical trend with only one evident rule: pile it on with layers. Topped with a boho vest and cozy knit cardigan, summer dresses are the perfect foundation piece for fall’s Indian summer. Boots and deep colours (especially brown, grey and red) are essential additions to keep the look grounded. Here are our picks to transition your summer dress to fall:
