Next up for my fall layers blog series is a more simple and classic combination of a cardigan and dress for all season autumn wear. This combination is a no-brainer. When wearing a dress this season the easiest method to stay warm in case of a sudden chill is to carry around a cozy cardigan. And as the weather gets colder the heavier my cardigans get. Fall is not quite cold enough for the jackets and coats so bring on all the sweaters!
My color block cardigan that I picked up from my Madewell fall try on (read post here) is soft, cozy and the perfect weight for all-day wear. The color combination can be styled in so many ways but I decided to keep it neutral with my classic Son de Flor white dress. Adding autumn touches to the outfit with a red leather crossbody and reddish brown loafers. These accessories really help define the outfit as a fall outfit.
Cardigan sweaters are a girl’s best friend and one of the best kinds of sweaters to pick up this time of year. What I love most about Madewell’s cardigans is they come in all different kinds of colors. Adding a couple different shades would have your fall essentials section in your wardrobe well stocked. One cardigan is never enough. It is good to have a few colors that can match all kinds of outfits. And like I said earlier it is nice to have cardigans that are different weights and made out of different materials. This one I am wearing is light but still warm. But if it was quite chilly outside I would grab my heavy wool sweater coat to throw on.
I bought my Son de Flor dress a while ago and its one of those dresses that is the perfect day dress no matter what season it is. Find me wearing it in the spring in this post here. I am glad I choose the white dress because it can be transformed in so many ways with so many colors. But this lovely brand has many other colors to choose from in beautiful autumn tones like lilac, marigold, and saffron. I believe every girl needs one of these dresses in their closet. Son de Flor dresses and cardigans are really all you need for fall. The perfect classic look that can be worn on repeat! Just give me a closet full of each in every color and I am set for life.
