Crisp air, beautifully dreary days, falling leaves, and the return of layering: fashion’s favorite season is right around the corner. I’ll admit to being overtly fall-obsessed. This week the weather dropped to the sixties with rain showers and grey skies, and I could not have been more excited. It finally meant it was time to start bringing back my seemingly endless collection of boots and sweaters. Before I get too ahead of myself, transitional outfits can be some of the most amusing in the sense of styling. It allows for creativity to flourish and the pairing of pieces together that you wouldn’t instantly expect. During Zara’s End of Summer Sale, I picked up this simple, yet perfect black sweater dress. The material is thick enough to keep warm without a jacket but still thin for layering. I styled it with this season’s must-have over the knee boot and a complementing choker.
