For fall, I have a couple of standard go-to outfit combinations. My favorite and most used is probably a leather jacket with jeans. Ironically though, my second favorite fall outfit combo is more feminine: a sweater over a floral midi dress. Below, I’m sharing some sweater over dress outfit inspo for those in-between fall days, plus a handful of midi floral dresses to refresh your wardrobe.
Sweater Over Dress Outfit Inspo
I found this sweater for only $35 from H&M. It’s perfectly oversized, not itchy, and the color matches everything. You can take your true size here, but if you want it more oversized, go up a size. (I went up a size.)
I’ve been seeing a lot of this “diagonal sweater tie” or whatever you want to call it trend. I decided to try it. While it’s not totally for me, it’s a nice alternative to wearing a sweater if you’re sick of tying one around your waist. I think for me it’s a little too preppy. However, I don’t seem to think that when I see others wear sweaters like this. Maybe I need to just try again.
The easiest, most effortless sweater over dress outfit is just that – putting it on over your dress. I can get away with bare legs in LA, but you can always add tights if it’s too chilly where you are.
Madewell always has great floral dresses and this season is no different. I prefer longer, midi lengths for fall. Click here for my dress; it runs TTS and I’m in a size 4.
I finished my outfit with a pair of suede booties. The exact pair is linked here in limited sizing, but here’s an almost identical style by the same brand with more sizes. I love a stacked heel; makes things much more comfortable while still adding height.
