The dog days of summer are almost over, and the crisp crunchy autumn season is fast approaching. It’s the era of in-betweens, and summer to fall can sometimes be a difficult transition. That’s why I love the layering trend—just throw a graphic T-shirt on under your summer slip dress, and you’re set for pumpkin-spice-latte sipping and pumpkin patches. This look is the epitome of the DKNY resort 2017 collection. With neutrals, neutrals, neutrals plus a chic ‘90s vibe, the ensemble sums up DKNY’s aesthetic this season. Dresses are also the ultimate uniform for school in the fall: no pants, one quick early morning decision and it kind of feels like wearing pajamas to class! The graphic T-shirt also tones down the nighttime effect of the slip dress, making it daytime appropriate for gallivanting around town or spending hours in the library.
These throwback black boots are one of my favorite pieces for this fall. I kind of feel like a Powerpuff girl mixed with the Black Widow, and I’m loving it. These boots instantly take another look to an edgier level. Plus, they’re not too bad to walk miles in either! Another bonus of the layering trend is that you can always slip the shirt off from underneath the dress, leaving you with an ultra-vampy night out ensemble. Add some dark lips to really convince everyone that it might be fall even if it’s still 90 degrees out. So grab the nearest graphic tee, and get ready to slip into fall!
