See The Styling Trick That Blew Our Editors' Minds

If you’ve been dreading Labor Day because it marks the end of summer, here’s something that should curb your impending seasonal affective disorder: hard, concrete proof that fall is actually way better than summer.

We took 3 versatile dresses (shout-out to Ruche and Threadsence!) and styled them for both seasons–a warm-weather version for the muggy days of August, and a cold-weather version to be worn from September on. You won’t believe the results: the fall looks were not only more stylish (more accessories and layering options) but they were more flattering, too (tall heeled boots make EVERYONE look thinner, even our skinny mini model). 3 out of 3 dresses looked better when styled for fall. See for yourself:

How To Wear In Summer And Fall

Left: We took Ruche’s Far Off Printed Dress ($54.99) and styled it with jeweled slide sandals from H&M, a navy pashmina scarf and a bag from Phillip Lim’s Target collection for summer. (Our model is SHEfinds’ own Editorial Director, Jeanine Edwards, by the way).

Right: For fall, Jeanine slipped on an army green jacket from Ella Moss (shop similar styles here), tall brown boots from Lands End (purchased on sale for $20!), and the same blue pashmina and Phillip Lim bag. What a difference the tall boots and army jacket make! Jeanine even remarked on how good it felt to be back in boots. “Go home and try on your tall boots! You will love it!”

How To Wear In Summer And Fall

L: For our second summer look, we took this Eastern Sun Dress ($52) from Threadsence and accessorized it with a neon and crystal statement necklace from J.Crew (find similar styles here) and brown leather flat sandals from Steve Madden.

R: For fall, we removed the neon necklace and topped the dress with a blue blazer from H&M, brown Franco Sarto booties and the Phillip Lim bag. This is why the blazer trend just won’t quit–they are a fail-proof way to make any outfit look more appropriate for work, and in the case of a well-tailored blazer with rolled sleeves, instantly cooler. “I love blazers!!” our photographer Shelby Rodriguez exclaimed during the shoot. Who doesn’t?

How To Wear In Summer And Fall

L: For our third and final look, we started with this Campus Park Dress ($44.99) from Ruche, and paired it with the brown sandals, a blue and crystal necklace from J.Crew (shop similar ones here) and a metallic cross-body bag from Ralph Lauren.

R: For fall, a green lightweight jacket from Woolrich and the tall Lands End boots took the dress to a whole new level of (casual) cool. We also removed the blue necklace and metallic bag; swapping out “fun” summer accessories for more serious ones completely changed the look.

So, does that make you more excited for fall?! Hopefully…because it’s just a few days away.
