ModCloth Autumn Layering Challenge

ModCloth Layering Challenge

Hello! This past week ModCloth invited me to participate in their autumn layering challenge. They challenged me as well as several other bloggers to put together a lookboard showing our best layering techniques using several ModCloth items. Layering is one of my favorite things about fall so of course, I decided to participate in the challenge.

As you guys probably know, patterned dresses dominate my wardrobe. And most of them aren't exactly designed for fall weather; they are primarily short, light-weight and either are sleeveless or have short sleeves. When autumn rolls around and temperatures start to drop, just styling these dresses on their own is no longer going to work.

However, that doesn't mean that I'm ready to pack them up and put them at the back of my wardrobe. Instead, I prefer to layer them. By layering them, I am provided with endless different options of how to wear these "summery" dresses in the fall.

Printed dresses like the dress in the set above look great styled with long cozy cardigans, plaid button downs or open knit sweaters. When styling looks for cooler weather, I also heavily rely on thigh high socks and tights. I'm not a huge fan of pants so thigh high socks and tights allow me to keep my legs warm while still wearing dresses.

This fall, I really like how cut-out boots and heeled booties look paired with a dress, sweater and pair of thigh-highs. Throw on a statement necklace and grab a bold bag and you're good to go.

Below are my favorite layering items from ModCloth:

1. "Vanilla Bean Dream Cardigan" $59.99. Slip this cardigan on over your favorite printed dress and you'll be prepared to face the chilly fall weather. The length of this cardigan also makes it perfect for styling with leggings. Be sure to check out Modcloth's full line of cardigans; they offer numerous prints, colors, textures and styles of cardigans. Definitely drooling over quite a few of their cardigans! 

2. "Craft Cider Tasting Top in Navy" $39.99. This fall, I've been obsessing over plaid button downs. They look great layered underneath of chic sweaters but also look great over solid colored dresses. Additionally, plaid button downs look great tied around your waist with a stylish dress on those warmer fall days. 

3. "Those Fall Nights Sweater" $54.99. A classic sweater like this one can be layered with practically everything in your fall wardrobe. I love the rich autumnal color of the sweater; it just screams "fall."
