Just add tights


I'm all about versatility. If I can wear something again and make it look new, I'm sold. Plus, being able to wear something to work and for a night out is important too. I'm so excited about dresses that I can buy now and just add tights to later as it gets chillier.

Nanette Lepore has some seriously cute stuff in her fall collection. One of my favorites is the 'Belleza Dress' ($348) from Saks. Sure, it's made of merino wool so I probably couldn't break it out until September, but it would look good with peep-toe booties until it's time for the tights.

Top Shop's 'Grey Bloom Bishop Sleeve Dress' ($100) feature fallish colors, but it works now since it's cotton and has billowy, non-clingy sleeves - which is crucial in August. It'd look great with a faux fur vest later or clogs. [anthropologie.com]

I love everything about the 'Parlor Games Dress' by Anna Sui for Anthropologie ($188). The silk dress features Victorian chairs. It works now since it's so light and later when paired with - you guessed it, tights! [forever21.com]

The bargain find 'Belted Artist Dress' ($22.80) from Forever 21 would be best with a different belt now and would look great with a chunky-knit sweater belted later.

J.Crew's 'Washed Silk Shirtdress' ($148) can be paired with just about everything from wedges now to oxfords and boots. Plus, chartreuse is one of my favorite colors, and it comes in spiced chartreuse and bluegrass. A belt could easily be added, too.[bananarepublic.com]

The 'Silk Crinkle Print Dress' ($100) from Banana Republic would work to wear to a wedding or in the fall paired with ankle boots and a cardi or tailored blazer.

This denim dress from H&M is a mere $39.95. I've always liked black and denim together, so I'd wear it with boots later and either long sleeve tee (or turtleneck) underneath or a leather jacket.
