Don’t retire your summer dresses just yet. The sunshine and high double-digits may be long gone but your summer style doesn't have to be. Dresses are the one thing you can take straight from your summer wardrobe and well into the fall. You just have to know the secret styling tips to do just that, and of course, Seaside Boutique has the scoop!
Add a Layer of Leggings
The main reason people retire their summer dresses when the fall season comes around is for fear of freezing off their booty. Fortunately, there is a simple and affordable fix to this fashion dilemma – leggings!
Add on a pair of leggings and instantly, your summer dress can be turned into a fall statement. The key is to opt for thing leggings, as the thick versions may be too overbearing for your chic and summery style.

Layer on Some High Socks
If leggings aren’t giving you the warmth you’re looking for, add on a pair of thigh-high or knee-high socks. They’re super trendy and instantly transform your summer dress into cozy fall fashion.
You can also leave the leggings and just wear high socks to give you the warmth and fall fashion you’re looking for.
Both looks are incredibly chic and super bohemian.
Trade in the Flippies for Booties
Flip flops and fall never mix… Unless you live on the tropical or southern shores. Then by all means, enjoy the summer wear year-round. However, if you’re like the majority of the world and have to suffer through months of the winter blues, flip-flops are going to freeze your style into a fashion faux pas. So, trade them in for some booties; not flats, high heels, stilettos or pumps – booties. They’re the perfect piece of footwear for fall as they give off that warm, grounded appeal that is prominent throughout the fall fashion trends.
Swap out the Sun Hat for a Flat Brim
With the sun not shining near as much as it used to, there’s no need for a sun hat. It’s like wearing flip flops in a snowstorm – pointless. However, the fall season does get a bit of sunshine, so a hat is still needed. The only difference is that fall hats typically add some warmth along with the shade and style. For this fall season, swap out the sun hat for a flat brim and your fall fashion will be on point – and practical!
Lengthen the Sleeves
Although you can’t make your dress sleeves longer, you can opt for an alternative – outwear and outwear accessories. Add on a chic denim or bomber jacket, cardigan or kimono with a blanket scarf, or you’ll have all the heat and hauteness you need trapped right within your outfit.
