t’s almost Fall, and there’s no perfect time to revisit the one skill that separates a true style girl from the rest this transitional season — layering. As the weather becomes chilly, making it harder to wear a stand-alone skimpy summer dress, it’s still too warm for cold-turkey bulky separates. But there are sleek ways to rock summer dresses in pre- and during Fall that’ll keep things fun and avoid the monotonous fall muted tone. The best part? Your whimsical summer dresses don’t have to be put away but can be accessorized with chic fall accessories, knit sweaters, and the classic trench coats for an added oomph.

Elevating your fall closet with bold hues, summer maxis, girly tulle dresses, and frisky print frocks sets the season up for an unpredictable twist. Infusing proper styling tips will almost feel like a fall parade, as the previous season’s staples remain relevant and Uber-cool.

Check out practical ways to wear your fun summer dresses in fall, like a pro…

#1. With blazers

Blazers are a great option, especially for the initial phase of the fall season. Before it becomes freezing, throw on your favorite nude-toned blazer (or bright-colored one, if you’re in the playful mood) and layer on that floral dress for a subtle fashion statement.

#2. With jean jackets

These wardrobe classics are the best transitional pieces. From the crop counterparts to the oversized jean jackets, they keep you warm and up-to-date. You can either wear them or wrap them around the shoulders, they’re still fun. The main flex is that these classics are sartorial jeaniuses when styled right.

#3. With a sweater/pullover

It’s almost sweater season again, so it’s time to dig them out from the bottom of your closet. While the weather is gearing up towards its colder moments, it’s still too warm to tackle a chunky sweater head-on. Therefore, think of crop sweaters and lightweight vests for an urban comeback.

#4. With bomber jacket

To sport summer dresses in fall, especially the colorful or bold print dresses, pair them with a solid-toned bomber jacket. This duo is an apt expression of looking smart and fun. These transitional pieces are diverse, you could rock a luxe leather bomber by day and satin bombers by night. Yup, they’re that versatile.

#5. With trench coat

Season after season, the classic trench coat remains undefeated. It continues to see modifications to its traditional forms but conserves its essence nonetheless. The minimalist and utilitarian trends allow this piece to be paired with any dress in the closet. A silk summer dress and paneled trench coats with an edgy leather twist keep things on the go.

#6. With boots

While we gear up to sport our summer dresses in Fall, bring out the thigh-high boots for a complementary take. They resist the cold, spruce up any look, and don’t tell me you haven’t missed these boots.

#7. With leggings

There’s something ladylike about a sleek set of see-through leggings. Slide into your favorite summer dress, roll up some leggings, and pair with chunky ankle boots for a fall/summer mashup.

#8. Layer the dress on

Wear your dress on top of a long-sleeved top and accessorize accordingly. The contrasting sleeve boosts the dress and, of course, your confidence.

#9. With quilted jackets

These jackets are essential for the seasons ahead as they work well for a summer/fall transition and well into the chilly days of winter. If you’re feeling rebellious, cop a colorful one that helps you stand out even in the heart of Fall.
