6 ways style a summer dress for fall

Fall is my favorite season to shop but summer is a close second. This is why the majority of my closet consists of both summer dresses and fall accessories. I love that I can still get a lot of wear out of my favorite summer dresses in the fall just by adding a few staple pieces. So here are 6 items that I always have in my closet.


I love boots and wearing booties is one of the ways to style a summer dress for fall when it’s still a bit warm out. Sometimes it’s too hot to wear over the knee boots but you also don’t want to wear sandals. Sharing my favorites below.


You can wear a dress any time of the year simply by adding a cute sweater. Fall is also the perfect time to show off your sweater collection by pairing your summer dresses with either a lightweight sweater or a chunky knit. I’ve included all of the best below. Oh, and sweaters are also a good thing to invests in since you can wear them over and over again.

Denim Jacket

I don’t think I will ever stop wearing denim jackets in the fall. I don’t know if it’s my country-girl heart but I swear them pairs well with just about any casual outfit. Plus it’s another fall essential that you will have forever, especially if it’s one I linked below.

Over the knee boots

Over the knee boots are a STAPLE in any fall wardrobe. Expect to see me wearing my OTK boots a lot this year, especially with some cute dresses. Thinking about ways I can style them makes me so excited for fall! If I had to choose one thing to buy it would definitely be these boots.

Wide Brim Hat

Wide brim hats have been a popular fall accessory in the past few years and I totally understand why. I love wearing hats especially when my hair isn’t co-operating or dry shampoo isn’t cutting it. Sharing some cute options below!

Over sized Scarf

I don’t even own a “regular” sized scarf anymore because I would rather have over-sized scarves. I love how pretty they look draped over the shoulder, or paired with a neutral cardigan and of course a summer dress. oh and mama’s I’ve totally used it as a blanket for my little one last fall.

Anyways, I hope this gave you a little inspiration for fall which is right around the corner. These 6 ways to style a summer dress for fall are all items all great transitional items you can use year after year. I do love trendy pieces but I really like to invest in accessories and I hope this makes the transitioning to fall a bit more exciting.
