A long-sleeved lace dress with mules is just right for early fall.
Early fall can be tricky to outfit: crisp mornings and evenings, with a hot afternoon sandwiched between. Trends also skew toward longer sleeves and lengths, yet it’s too warm for sweaters. A long-sleeved mini dress to the rescue! This nude lace dress is perfect– it works now with bare legs for kinda-sorta-fall days, but will also pair with jackets and tights later when the weather turns. I love the interesting lace pattern; it feels a little tougher than your standard super girly lace. I grabbed my blush suede mules from H&M (fast fashion score!) and some dainty gold accessories to dress this look up a bit.
We’ve got a little 90’s nod in the shoe, while the dress is a timeless sheath. This outfit also hits on the neutral tonal trend. Going head-to-toe in a single color (or similar colors, as I’ve done here) may seem a little boring, but it lends a really polished element to an outfit.
Shop the look:
I’ll definitely be leaning on this dress more and more as the season wears on. It’s long enough for the office (especially paired with tights), but also has the potential to get really sassy for date night. (Perhaps with tall + heeled boots and a leather jacket?) What I really want to try: this dress with a utility jacket and sneakers. Can it be done? I think so.
