I love October. The crisp weather, the need to bundle up in cuddly fabrics and drink hot apple cider on a gray and dreary day, the smell of freshly fallen leaves, being able to go outside jacket less, but still have to need something heavier than a long sleeve tee shirt. It’s the glory time of year, is it not? After ten years without a traditional Fall, I’m thrilled to be able to experience it again, (And also, I can buy more sweaters now! And capes, coats, dresses, and anything else in a knit or cozy fabric. Swoon.)
Right now, as I spend my days shuttling children to and from school, volunteering in classrooms, and all that special mom stuff that comes with this time period in my life, I want comfort and simplicity. Which in MY book, means black on black, and knits on top of knits. (I refuse to wear a jacket full time yet. REFUSE.)
I love how this Lulu*s knit sweater dress can be styled and worn different ways. It’s light enough for layering, yet still looks substantial enough to wear on its own. Plus, the cowl knock is sort of a built in scarf, that’s a WIN in my book. Warmth AND style.
Here are three ways you can style this knit dress for the Fall:
-Layer it with a knit cape on top in lieu of a jacket, as seen above. I like doing this rather than wearing a coat, because I know we have about six months of mandatory coat time coming up, and I’m holding off while I can!
-Change out the black pants for a colored tight (I would do purple!), and cute ankle boots. OR! Try a pair of fun, lacy black tights for some added texture and fun.
-Pull on a pair of liquid leggings underneath and switch out the boots for strappy heels, for a cute (and warm!) date night look.
Tell me, how do you like to wear knits in the Fall? (I’m looking forward to layering cozy sweaters over maxi dresses, or over mini skirts and fleece tights, with boots!)
