If you’re looking to repurpose that sleeveless dress you nabbed this spring or hoping to wear your favorite spaghetti strapped dress to work, layer it over a simple tee for a look that takes a summer staple dress to a whole new level of chicness. Cardigans and denim jackets are tried-and-true layers, but slipping a knit tee under your dress infuses a bit of youthful edge, a la the jumper trend of the 90s—–a comeback look that’s as comfortable as it is cool. Crew neck tees with a short sleeve or three quarter sleeve work best for maxi and midi dresses, but try to play with proportions by wearing a long sleeve tee under a mini dress. Snug-fitting shirts will be your go-to—so pull out that tee that you’ve had in the back of your drawer!
Keep that casual athleisure vibe strong with a pair of fashion sneakers and sunglasses or dress for Sunday brunch with stacked heels and a colorful clutch.
Creative layering doesn’t have to stop here. A crisp button-up shirt under your dress will transition that sleeveless piece into perfectly polished workwear. Rompers and jumpsuits are having a serious moment this season, so try them over a knit turtleneck when the weather turns cool to give them a fashion update this fall.
