Keep the long dresses. In autumn, the hems will continue to rise
The uniform for the next few months will not keep the legs hidden. It will, on the other hand, highlight our favorite boots.
With the end of summer, the trend repeats itself. The season is changed, the hems go down and the necklines go up. The process becomes so automatic that we don’t even think of ways to break the rules. Abandoning shorts and T-shirts is inevitable, but short dresses — as strange as it may seem — deserve to be present in our outfits in the transition to the colder days.
The secret is, of course, in the choice of materials. We cannot continue to bet on the lightness of linen and satin, but there are options that keep us warm. And there’s no need to hide your legs, which still retain the tan from the days spent at the beach. Tencel, knitted or even wool options stand out, for example, such as sweater dresses.
An example that works well on the hottest days, but also in times to come, is the shirt dress. Also known as chemise dresses, they reinterpret the men’s shirt and are a hit due to their versatility. With a long sleeve, they are the ideal look to return to work.
In addition, tall boots, a model that was off the radars of the industry in recent times, have returned with force to our closet. Your style levels will be taken to another level — this time, literally. As for the challenge of knowing how to combine them in a look, there is always a safe bet: a good short dress.
With the start of fashion weeks, like the one in Copenhagen, Denmark, some of the biggest influencers in the world shared photos of their looks composed of vibrant, more autumnal looks. They didn’t rule out short dresses from the equation, pairing it with flats and boots. We have the uniform for the next few months.
NiT has gathered some of the short dresses that are on sale in Portugal and that you can combine with high boots to rock during the fall. Click on the gallery to see our suggestions.
