How to style your summer dress for autumn in Canberra

Before you put away your spring and summer dresses, consider this clever layering trend that fashion girls are obsessed with. It’s literally made for the cold/hot days we’re currently experiencing right now in Canberra. Plus, you can try the trend with your existing wardrobe – no spending required!

We’ve found 5 ways to bring your summer dresses out of storage and into autumn. Examples below to copy at your leisure.

BUTTON UP YOUR SHIRT

Balance a floaty dress with a long-sleeve, buttoned-up shirt for an instant update. Add a preppy vibe by buttoning right up to the collar.

PAIR IT WITH STRIPES

A striped shirt, turtleneck or long-sleeve top work beautifully when adding layers to a simple dress. Keep the dress choice to one colour and you’re good to go.

MONOCHROME ALWAYS WINS

For neat weekend wear, you can’t beat a monochrome ensemble. Add style points by varying your textures: leather, silk or denim in dark tones are all good.

STATEMENT SLEEVES

For true, fashion-girl style, you can’t go wrong with a statement-making sleeve. Layer a structured top under any dress for a real cool-girl vibe.

GO CHIC IN COUTURE

Think this trend is reserved for floaty daywear? Think again. Pull out your most glam dress and get to work layering – wear it with confidence and nothing is off limits!
