Now and Later – Silk Dress

It’s time for a little more transitional dressing with our Now & Later series. In fact this is part four, so we are transitioning well in our wardrobe going from summer to autumn. Although we haven’t had much autumnal weather yet…I can tell it won’t be long!

Silk Sita Murt Dress

Summer Silk Dress: You’ll remember this lovely silk Sita Murt dresses as one of my purchases from Spain. I was really excited to see that Sita Murt has been named one of the 4 to Watch designers in the current issue of Madison Australia! I absolutely adore both the pieces I bought while in Spain and would love to add more of this feminine style to my wardrobe. Above is the summer look. Wearing natural fibers like silk helps you stay cool in the warm weather and the long sleeves are perfect for those chilly offices.

Autumnal Silk Dress: To turn this dress into a look that can be worn in the cooler months I have pulled on some brown tights, a pair of neutral lace up Oxford’s and one of my favourite granny cardigans. Nothing wrong with a little granny chic when you are trying to stay warm! The neutral colours work well for the cooling season and the palette of the dress.

Accessories: I have also opted for my well-loved Coach handbag and a vintage double-strand of pearls to play up the granny-chic factor! Actually, both those accessories make it a little dressier and quite appropriate to wear to work or out to lunch with friends.

Once again, the success of transitioning clothing from the warmer seasons to cooler months is layering. Likewise, if you are in the colder months and spring is around the corner, start having a look at the layers that you are currently wearing and thinking about how you may be able to wear some of those items in a different way. Remember to be creative!

What do you think of my now and later silk dress look? Would you wear it this way? What about with boots?
