Often I go to media/blog events in between work or after work, which doesn’t give me much time on change. If you see me on public transit en route to work, I’m 99% of the time in sneakers, jeans, and some form or hoodie or sweater (now that it’s fall.) However, when I DO have somewhere to go, I will be pulling hair out of my head the night before trying to decide what to wear. Do I sacrifice looks for warmth? Can I just wear sneakers with this dress and look stubby, instead of trying to trot in heels all day? After changing around my wardrobe for the colder season, I came up with some ways to layer with a dress but still stay warm.
I received a few dresses from Tobi which were a bit on the loose fitting side for me- I found that they were much more wearable in fall as I can layer it and make it work appropriate. Shirt dresses are a thing of mine as they are most definitely cute for office attire and it makes a difference if you choose to wear a trench coat or a long cardigan with it. I’ve been wearing shirt dresses, such as the “Tie Me Down Black Shirt Dress” with long wool cardigans. (Psst, I recently acquired this wool cardigan from the newly opened Uniqlo in Metrotown and it’s fantastic over everything!!!!)
Another dress I got from Tobi was the “Becca Blue Shift Dress”, which has a mock neck. (ALSO – this was made in USA! I don’t have many pieces made from USA so this is nice.) It is definitely way too chilly to wear this on it’s own. I like wearing this style with a leather jacket – in this case mine is a faux leather jacket because I’m having the trouble of deciding whether to spend all my money on a nice leather jacket…or save up for a ridiculous down payment for a condo. Jacket of course, right? 😉
One of my favourite dress combinations from last year, which I didn’t have many chances to wear out, is the slip dress. I bought both of these from Dynamite. This is such a 90’s thing, and sadly I was dressed like a loser around the 90’s – there’s incriminating photos of me wearing waterproof (with fleece lining) pants and a hoodie. I guess it’s time to make it up when I’m in my later 20’s! I’m currently hunting for more dresses (Quiz Clothing has some great options!)* for my company Christmas party- any suggestions??
Do you like wearing dresses when it’s a bit chilly out still, or it’s all sweatpants and leggings from here on now?
