Fall season is upon us but I still can’t get myself to put away some of my summer wardrobe pieces, including this H&M semi-sheer maxi dress. Aside from wearing this maxi dress as is, I am able to create several looks from simply styling it in different ways, like I did here by wearing a tank over the maxi dress.

Frances’ styling tips:

  • For an illusion of separate pieces in a look, wear a top, like a tee or sweater, over your dress.
  • For a casual transitional look, wear a button-up shirt, like a chambray or plaid shirt, over your dress & tie the front ends of the shirt with all or some buttons unbuttoned.
  • For the cooler weather, wear an unzipped or unbuttoned jacket, like a denim jacket or anorak jacket, over your dress. Add a scarf to your look for those extra chilly days.
  • Pair your dress with booties to complete your fall transitional look. For a casual spring transitional look, pair your dress with lace-up or slip-on sneakers.

Every now & then, it’s nice to take a break from the city. This past Sunday, I ended my birthday weekend with a spontaneous day trip to Connecticut & it was just what I needed to get out of the stress funk I was in for the past few weeks. Being in the moment is the cure for everything.
