Summer Lace & Fall Nights

Enter: The white lace dress. We all had one over the summer, let's be honest. They were a hot item and trend and every girl made it a point to rock the look over the course of the hot months. I think I have two of them. And a skirt. I couldn't get enough....shocker.

Now that the warm months are gone, these little white lace garments are typically deemed a big no-no and stashed away with the bikinis and flip-flops until next summer rolls around.

However, don't shove it to the back of your closet just yet! Lucky for me, and many of you out there, there are ways to hold on to the fab look and transition it in your wardrobe so that you can still wear it during those winter months.

Score, score aaaaand score!

In my case, I have this wonderful long-sleeved backless dress that I adore and am not quite ready to say goodbye to it. So, I brought some fall colors into it. I threw some black opaque tights on underneath and a pair of brown boots. Since it's chilly outside, I also layered it with a more masculine military trend jacket to dress down the girly lace. I love a good mix of girly + masculine pieces.

This is such an easy way to transition your favorite summer dress - lace or not - into the fall/winter months! No sense in breaking the bank for that fall wardrobe when you can use some items you already have!
