Dresses are synonymous with summer, while cozy sweaters are most often associated with fall. But that certainly doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to work a variation of either into your wardrobe during their, well, “off-seasons” — i.e. sweaters in the summer and dresses in the fall. Lightweight knits are a must during chilly summertime bonfires, while easygoing mini, midi, and maxis made from slightly heavier fabrics are sure to make getting dressed during autumn’s funk a breeze, even if it is just for that morning Zoom meeting.
And you didn’t just hear it from us. Kate Middleton is here for fall dresses, and she may have found the internet’s most fall-friendly style, which she wore during a special outing with her family. Earlier last week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with their three children, met with a very special friend, Sir David Attenborough, and successfully took family outfit coordination to the next level. They all wore some variation of a calm, earthy-blue hue — a fitting color of choice — but it was Middleton’s chambray dress that really stood out.
The Duchess of Cambridge stunned in a Gabriela Hearst dress that’s not just easy on the eyes, but easy on the earth, too, as it’s actually made from repurposed denim.
