Fashionable Essentials for Fall: The Dress

Dresses are always a fashion essential, but this season a dress that can be worn with boots is so essential!  In this post we wanted to highlight a couple of excellent examples of how to rock great dresses with boots.   First, the elegant and classic dress that pairs perfectly with boots is the Kiki Front Tie Dress by Ella Moss. This dress falls just above the knee so it is the perfect length for knee high boots. I also love the look of the layers of this dress, especially with boots on.  The dress comes in slate (grey) and vanilla (ivory) which means this dress fits with any wardrobe whether you have brown boots or black.  This dress will undoubtedly become a statement piece for any wardrobe.

To prove how truly versatile boots have become this fall, my second pick for a essential fall dress is the Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress from Ella Moss. This long designer dress is a great choice for fall.  Ella Moss’s Maxi dress shows why long dresses have come back in style.  The beautiful lace like knit detail around the neckline along with the racerback and empire waist makes this dress elegant and distinctive, but also classic and simple. What is hard to show in a picture is how incredibly soft this supima fabric is. I love pairing this dress as pictured with cowboy boots. This dress will work any season, but is especially fun to wear in the fall.

These are just two of dozens of designer dresses at Vintage Fringe, some of which are on sale and better yet some of which are in the outlet.

Five Fabulous Fall Essentials

Velvet Nanelle Scoop Neck

This week we’re focused on fashion essentials for fall.  The first key to fall fashion this year and every year for that matter is layering.  The key to any layered look in fall starts for me with a  few great long sleeve tee shirts. Long sleeve tees not only keep you warm, but are the  essential first step to any layered look.  Add a vest, cardigan or sweater on top of it and you have a versatile and fashionable outfit.

This fall I have found two essential designer long sleeve tees that will get you through both fall and winter. The first long sleeve tee I love is the Nanelle long sleeve tee from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. It’s easy to see how versatile this shirt is, but what is hard to see is how amazingly soft and comfortable this baby jersey fabric feels.  I also love the colors it comes in. Pictured above in Rain, it also comes in a darker green, ivory, and a taupe color.

Another great choice for best long sleeve shirt for fall is by Splendid. This tee is also super soft, durable, and washable. The length on this shirt is perfect, and the colors available are black, white, brown, and green.  I wear this shirt under many of my other splendid tees to add warmth and style to many tops.  The fabric on this top is a lightweight, super soft cotton that feels truly amazing on.  It is a sheerer fabric than the Nanelle scoop neck because the fabric is a lighter cotton than the Nanelle.  I love layering this top under cardigans or blazers.

Stay tuned for my 4 other fabulous fall essentials…. and as always visit for these and many more fashion must haves.
