Casual fall style is usually pretty easy. Grab an easy-to-layer tee, a blanket scarf, your favorite leather jacket, jeans and you’re out the door. Dressing for an event in the fall, especially in the Northeast, can be a bit more challenging. It’s 20 degrees cooler at night than during the day, there’s an 80% chance it’s already raining (whaddup Karen Smith) and you’ll definitely sink into the ground in heels. Do you bring a jacket? A pashmina? What about footwear? You can’t wear sneakers! I’m here to solve all of your dressing dilemmas for your fall events.
I initially bought this pleated wrap dress for teaching, but once I put it on, I thought that it would be the perfect dress for fancier fall events. The deep plum color is so amazing and I can definitely see myself taking this dress into the holiday season, too! It comes in four colors (I love the navy, too). Since it’s still pretty warm up here, at least for October, I wore this without a cover up this weekend. I think I would LOVE this with a fur jacket or wrap. The color of this dress pairs so well with dark colors like this leopard clutch. A calf-hair or suede texture against the slippery fabric would be amazing, too. Honestly, there’s so many styling possibilities with this dress I couldn’t even begin to think of them all.
As for shoes, I did wear these heels to my dinner meeting this past weekend. If you’re heading to an outdoor wedding, however, you know these skinny heels won’t be practical. So, if the weather is still agreeing with your event and you have a killer pedi, go for something like these. If you need closed toe I love these chunky heels, or change out your clutch and try these!
I think the best part is that every piece in this outfit is under $100. Actually, everything except the dress is under $28! And the dress is on major sale. Those are amazing prices for such a seemingly expensive look, if I do say so myself. So check out the links below and grab the pieces before they’re gone!
Happy Monday, everyone!
