The Perfect Sweater Dress


If I’m going to be inspired by a season, it’s fall. Especially now that it’s October (which is my favorite month by far), I can’t help gravitating to autumn colors and thicker fabrics in hope that the weather follows my lead. Some of my favorite colors for fall are rusty reds and greys, so I try and wear them as often as I can to really get into the October mindset. I love the idea of having seasonal color palettes for my wardrobe, but I haven’t been able to part with my summer clothes yet! Has anyone ever done this with their closet? Rust and reds are also great transitional colors for fall, because they’re more sophisticated than the spring pink and summer orange.

The Étoile Isabel Marant knit dress I’m wearing today is a perfect example of how wearable and autumn-appropriate rust and burgundy are. Plus, this knit dress is ridiculously cozy and comfortable. I’m wearing it here with bare legs, but I’m excited to throw on some tights once the temperatures drop. Black tights, boots, and the right coat? I’m already swooning!

I paired this dress with low, versatile Christian Louboutin boots (that are just as cute with tucked-in jeans) and my Gucci Soho Disco bag. I’ve already talked about how timeless and gorgeous it is, but I have to mention that it’s quickly becoming my go-to bag for fall. Then, I chose on these Miu Miu aviators from DITTO to tie the whole look together. DITTO (the endless eyewear subscription), is every Fashionistas best friend!

DITTO is a website where you can either shop for amazing designer sunglasses, and/OR you can sign up for a sunglass subscription. For $24 a month, you can pick from countless designer sunglasses that you want to wear either for a weekend trip, a month, or as long as you want! (For $34 a month you can do this exact same thing with prescription glasses!) When you get tired of that pair, or want a new pair, you simply swap them out for a new pair! Shipping and returns are ALWAYS free, and DITTO makes that process as easy/simple as possible. So what are you waiting for?

I’m going to continue to wear dresses into fall as much as I can, since the weather can quickly drop from cute to freezing in a matter of days. I have to take advantage of sweater dress weather while I can! If you want to see more of my fall outfits and inspiration, make sure to follow me @celebstyleguide on Instagram and Snapchat.

As always, have a great week!
