Versatility is key when creating a wardrobe you’ll get the most out of, and that’s exactly why one of fall’s trending pieces – a button-up dress – has made it to the top of our must-have list for the new season. With this trendy piece making a major statement for fall, it’s coming in many different styles and colors, which means no matter your personal style, you can make it work in your wardrobe!

The key to having your go-to pieces on constant rotation in your closet is to think outside of the box when putting your looks together. We know what a tricky task that can be, so here’s a little inspiration to wear your button-up dress 3 different ways…


1. Trendy on the Town

When you think of a dress, it doesn’t always have to act as it’s intended purpose. We love throwing on a pair of leggings and leaving a few buttons open on the top and bottom to break up the look a bit. Throw on a detailed cami underneath for added interest.

2. Layered on Leather

When in doubt, utilize your layers! Leather jackets are our go-to for fall, and with the dress being the main focal point of this look, you can definitely add in a pair of leather leggings without going overboard. Tie a belt at the waist for shape, and you’re headed out the door in a stylish and effortless look, perfect for any fall occasion!

3. Cool & Casual

In our opinion, this is where the versatility of a button-up dress truly shines. It’s biggest secret is that it’s one of the best layering pieces you can have in your closet! Forget the buttons and throw it over your favorite t-shirt and jeans combo, and continue layering for added interest.
