How-to Rock a Slip Dress Through Fall

Many of you may be mourning the loss of your beloved summer, but I, for one, believe fall to be the fashion icon of the seasons. But it’s understandable to have mixed feelings about saying a fond farewell to the sunny staples that jetted you off to European excursions, catamarans off the Caribbean, or, if you’re like me, the wine bar down the street where you took one-too-many first dates, but I digress.  

The point is there’s no need to say goodbye. Take this quintessential workhorse of a piece for example—what was once a singular style can be transformed into a vessel for endless outfitting opportunities. Read on to discover three ways to dress around it with pieces you probably already have in your closet (and if not, you now have an excuse to go shopping).
