It’s back. The “What to wear over this fancy dress?” question that perplexes us each year. When the nights become colder, but the parties are still ‘haute’, and we give that perfect party dress a once-over and think, “Dang, I’m going to get chilly later”. Hey, girl, don’t get caught in the cold! We have the layers to match the looks, whether your dress is darling and playful, posh and cosmopolitan, elegant and formal, or anything in between.
Read on to see how we layered up the luxe looks with light layers as lovely as the dresses themselves! The only thing you’ll have to ask yourself is, “What kind of entrance will I make this party season?”
It’s double the texture, double the fun here with this pretty and peppy get up. A short, lace dress is ready for the sunset with the addition of an ultra-soft, plush jacket. While the frock’s floral overlay and outerwear’s luxe faux-fur are the same color, their contrasting textures prevent the pieces from getting lost within this same, muted hue. Instead, each garment stand out thanks to the interesting interplay of fabrics. Add jewel-toned shoes and accessories to give this vanilla-hued ensemble a touch of fall color.
With the versatility of a sleek, black sheath dress, the options for suitable outerwear are endless. Here, the addition of a unique, yet sophisticated, cape gives this outfit an extra dash of cosmopolitan elegance. Keep your look polished by adding a pair of sharp black heels, and you’re ready to turn heads with a chic style that’s at once simple and stunning.
Here’s the tricky part. Finding the perfect layer for an elegant evening gown. We think we’ve found a solution! When faux-fur capelets aren’t enough and long coats are too much, wrap a soft shawl around your shoulders. The use of a casual — and did we mention soft — shawl here becomes a glamorous garment when cinched with a gleaming gold belt. No need to sacrifice style for comfort — have both!
