Fall Layering With Modcloth

1-Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 12.56.53 AM

You all know by now that I am a huge Modcloth fan, so when they contacted me and asked me to share some of my favorite fall layering pieces, I of course jumped at the chance. I decided to create three different layered looks revolving around one dress. I chose this dress because it so perfectly reflects my style, I adore everything about it, from it’s lace Peter Pan collar to it’s beautiful bright red color. I also wanted to choose a dress that would transition well from summer to fall and could easily be worn any time of year. I don’t swap out my closet seasonally like a lot of people do. I am a big believer that most of the clothes in your closet should work for you year round and that’s where layering comes in. Just add a sweater/cardigan and tights/leggings/socks and you can easily transition all of your summer dresses into the colder months. Modcloth has so many amazing layering pieces right now, it was hard to pick just three! Check out their super cute collection of sweaters and cardigans, you won’t be disappointed ;).

1.  Date Night:

~ Cardigan: “The Dream of the Crop Cardigan in Black”
I have talked about these cropped cardigans many times, but they truly are my go-to cardigans for fit & flare dresses like this one. It is the perfect layering piece for a chilly date night with a special someone ;).

~ Dress: “Dancing Date Dress in Rouge”
~ Tights: “Date Night on the Town Tights”
~ Shoes: “Marvel Heel in Sand”
~ Clutch: “Dapper and You Know It Bag”

2.   Work:

~ Sweater: “Cookie Break Sweater”
This cozy wrap sweater is the perfect way to stay warm while still looking cute in the office. The neutral color makes this such a versatile piece and it would look equally as cute with a t-shirt and jeans on the weekend.

~ Dress: “Dancing Date Dress in Rouge”
~ Tights: “Candy Cottages Tights in Charcoal”
~ Shoes: “Rocky Road Trip Flat”
~ Bag: “Perk Me Up Bag in Toffee”

3.  Weekend:

~ Sweater: “I Got Ewe, Babe Sweater”
I love a fun novelty print and this sheep sweater would be adorable layered over the dress with it’s lace Peter Pan collar. This outfit would be perfect for a weekend of shopping or brunch with friends.

~ Dress: “Dancing Date Dress in Rouge”
~ Socks: “Greet Your Day Socks in Cream”
~ Shoes: “Trolley Holiday Flat in Black”
~ Satchel: “Cambridge Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Red”

I hope these looks give you some layering ideas so that you can continue to wear all of your lovely summer dresses into the fall/winter :).

  • I like your picks!! I honestly have to say that I’m terrible at layering but I really like what you said about pieces should be able to be worn all year round. I also think my budget likes that as well :)

    Talk soon!


    • Truly, Tamara

      Thanks, Kate! Yes, it drives me crazy when people have a summer and a winter wardrobe. I mean, I understand that some things are definitely one or the other, but most clothes can work for all season with a little adding or subtracting ;). Especially dresses, which are obviously the bulk of my wardrobe.
