Fall Dresses and Tights

As the leaves begin to fall..

and the weather begins to cool, what we wear obviously begins to change too! One of the best ways to start making your wardrobe start to feel more fall inspired is to pair a great dress with some tights. Here i have three totally different ways to wear different types of dresses with tights…

SWEATER DRESS: This is easily the most casual and comfortable look that anyone can pull off! Add a cute little beanie to keep your head warm, some awesome riding boots with a little extra touch (these ones are quilted), and a cross body bag and your ready to do your errands for the day!

VINTAGE INSPIRED DRESS: I just fell in LOVE with this beautiful floral dress when I saw it and i thought it would be a great day time dress for fall! To keep with the vintage inspiration of the dress I paired some oxford heels with it along with a sparrow necklace. I added a burgundy cardigan and a mustard-colored scarf, which are both colors in the details of the dress, to make it more interesting.

LACE DRESS: Lace Dress are beautiful and perfect for date nights! This one is a perfect length and silhouette for everybody type! Since the dress itself it very feminine, I added more edgy arm candy like the skull bangle and spiked bracelet. Lace-up booties are a perfect footwear for a date night because the chunky heel keeps the shoe every comfortable. Throw a cute peacoat over it and your ready for a great night!

3 Ways to Wear: Denim jacket in the summer

When your outfit needs a little something extra.. 

and without feeling overly done, a denim vest or jacket is the perfect solution! It is just so easy and definitely a perfect wardrobe staple. Here’s 3 options I thought would be great ways and good inspiration for you to dust off your jean vest and give it another go this summer!

  • With a Maxi Dress: So you wore your maxi dress to the beach (or anywhere else for that matter) and are ready to go get dinner. Throw a denim jacket over it and you can have  good meal without the cool shore weather bothering you.

  • With a floral dress: I think a cute demin vest is perfect over a patterned dress. With some visually beautiful wedges, any girl is ready for a nice summer date.

  • With lace shorts: This look is girly and dainty and everything that I am and love! It is so soft and sweet without looking like it took you forever to come up with it.

50 shades of fashion: The Plum Dress

I am Completely OBSESSED… 

With the 5o Shades of Grey Trilogy right now and I just got done reading the first book which was amazing! I highly recommend it. As I got lost in the book I became to visualize what Anastasia’s(main character and voice of the book) very popular “plum dress” would look like. I have so many ideas of how it would, I thought it would be fun for the other readers of the Trilogy to see my 3 interpretations of the dress. So please enjoy 🙂

  • Ana is a strong headed individual but she’s also very innocent and barely coming into her own and being able to be comfortable in her own skin so while the dress (which in the book she borrows from her roommate) is a more confident one the accessories are minimal and sweet.

  • This dress is also has the same essence as the first. It’s a little bit more covered up and has a great cross-back detailing. Again the accessories are minimal because to me she’s not too flashy of a girl, she is definitely more of a get up and go person.

Alice + Olivia alice olivia dress, $280 / Strappy heels / Dorothy Perkins bow clutch / LFrank rose earrings / Sydney Evan polka dot jewelry, $1,080
  • For my third interpretation, I went with how I thought the gorgeous Christian Grey would of felt she looked the first time he sees her in the dress. He is helplessly attracted to her so I can only imagine how breathtaking he thought she looked so i deemed it appropriate to put a show stopper in here.

What to wear: Sheer blouses

A Good friend once asked me..

“Hey Rita, I really want to buy a sheer blouse but I have no idea how to style it? How would you where it?” Well of course my mind went WILD with ideas because 1: I LOVE sheer blouses and 2: There is really an infinite way to wear them. So i put on my thinking cap and came up with some ideas for her on how to wear them. So here is what I came up with.

A BASIC WHITE SHEER TOP 

For this look you can really do anything your little heart desires. One I chose to go with a cute colored lace bandeau and flow over jean shorts. The other I thought would be cute over a white bandeau tucked into a cute skirt like this tangerine one (which is the color of the season).

POLKADOTS AND POP OF COLOR

This outfit is so simple and yet so fun and definitely something I’ve worn before! I would describe this as all black everything with a pop of color. Black bandeau under the blouse, your cutest black skinny jeans, and an awesome cocktail ring! Take your favorite colored heels and you have an effortless look.

PETER PAN AND PEPLUM 

This outfit is by far my favorite! This time under the sheer shirt i decided to go with a nude bra because i really want the shirt to stand out on it’s own without any background interference. It’s a classic look because of the high waisted skirt and button down but also trendy with the collar and peplum accents.

PS. If you are nervous or not ready to bare all yet any of the bandeaus can be exchanged with a cute cami!! Which outfit was your favorite? Would you wear any of these? How do you style your sheer shirt? I would love to know! Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Happy Shopping 🙂 -Rita
