Let’s admit it, we all love a good dress.  An understatement I know, but who can resist their cute and flirty feel while also being the most comfortable option out there?  We mostly think of dresses as a summer essential.  But just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you have to hide those legs just yet.  To get that perfect fall feel, bring on the textures!

That’s right, this season leather is making a comeback once again, and we couldn’t be more excited.  Whether it’s a jacket, boots, or bag, what better way to add both edge and sophistication?  Just take your summer dress and throw on your favorite leather pieces. The simple accents can turn any dress into a fearless fall ensemble. We love complementing the flirty feel of a dress with the cool confidence of a leather jacket.  Add a leather bag for a timeless sophisticated touch.  And don’t forget your leather boots to enhance that autumn feel. Goodbye sandals, these boots were made for walking.

Quilted pieces are a must-have this fall.  Channel your inner diva and rock your dress with a quilted bag, or strut your stuff in quilted shoes.  Even try a dress that’s partially quilted (but careful not to overdo it!).  We love playing up the little black dress with a pop of color from a quilted cross-body bag.  Even pair your go-to floral dress with a quilted jacket or purse!  The soft pillow-y texture can perfectly transform any dress to a killer outfit for the colder season.

Stay warm and cozy with a classic fall look, wool and knit.  Add a knit scarf or sweater to bundle up for the brisk days, or add a touch of bohemian with wool tights.  We love extending the life of our summer florals or stripes by pairing them with an over-sized cardigan. And we can’t resist the good old-fashioned sweater dress for an instant autumn style. This texture is a timeless fall fashion that’s fantastic for embracing the season.

So search your closet to its deepest corners, hit the racks at your favorite store, and flaunt your fall dress with confidence!
