Shopping near the end of a season is always awkward. Do you buy for the current season that you’re in? Or, do you shop for the next season, so you’ll get more wear out of the item that you’re buying? To those questions I say: do both and buy yourself a transitionable item (yup, I just made up that word). When you think of summer-to-fall transition clothing, a strappy dress is probably not the first item that comes to mind. But it’s actually not that hard to take this item into fall. All you need to do is just layer a white thin short sleeve shirt, like Uniqlo’s AIRism scoop-neck tee, underneath. When the weather get’s a bit more nippy, you can layer a long sleeve shirt instead and/or add an extra layer of jacket on top.
My favorite part about this dress is the ruffle detail. It adds that bit of interest that will look good no matter what season you’re wearing it on. Also did I mention I got this dress at Century 21 Dept Store, which means I got it at mega sale. The discounted price, combined with the fact that I’m able to wear this dress in multiple seasons, means that I’m really getting the best bang out of my buck.
