When fall arrives, my favorite thing to do is layer my clothing. Because the weather still kind of bounces back and forth between warm and cold, layering becomes mandatory and all you need are a few good basics to make it work effortlessly. Having the right basics is key to making an smart easy look, and nothing makes this statement quite as smoothly as an all black ensemble.
Wearing all black always makes me feel confident and sophisticated without too much hassle. It’s simple to throw together and looks like I put more thought into it than I actually did. It’s definitely a go-to in the morning when I can’t figure out what I want to wear—it’s minimalism is consistently reliable. This beautiful dress from Via Delle Perle is great because it’s the perfect length for the fall weather and can be accessorized, layered and paired with boots of all heights. The dress is sleek and elegant with just the right amount of detailing, like the subtle zipper on the back and the written embroidery on the sleeves. These unexpected small things make all the difference and take this seemingly simple black dress to another level. You can also layer it with a long blazer to add some edge and I wrapped myself up in a large cozy scarf to keep me warm. These simple additions add some zest to the dress without taking away from its appeal. Can’t go wrong with that A
