Striped Dress For Day & Night

Cooler weather means I get to layer!  My favorite piece to layer, and the easiest one, has always been my army green anorak from Ross (also seen here).  I wear it every chance I get and believe it or not the army green color can be used as a neutral making it super easy to incorporate into many outfits.  This time I decided to pair my anorak with my striped dress for a day time look that I easily dressed up by removing the jacket, adding animal print heels and turning belt around.

Target Style Series: How to Layer Your Look

When temps start to drop, it’s all about the layering to me – It’s such a simple yet fabulous way to add depth and character to ANYTHING!  The key to layering is keeping the look effortless yet polished while always shooting for the lightest fabric possible to avoid looking bulky. Below are some of my favorite tricks for layering:

Lace Dress – $24.99 | Plaid Blouse – $17.99 | Hooded jacket – $17.48 | Leggings – $8 | Merona Ballerina Flats – $19.99 | Glitter Belt – $12.99

Vest, scarves, leggings and short dresses that can be belted and used as tunics are my personal must-haves for layering.

Suede Top – $16.99 | Polo – $13 | Bomber Jacket – $39.99 | Merona Tailored Ankle Pants – $27.99 | | Merona Moccasin – $24.99 | Merona Satchel – $29.99 | Houndstooth Scarf – $9

If you’re layering a bulkier peice let it be the one that goes on last, like the jacket pictured here.

Striped Henley – $12 | Long Lean Tank – $6 | Denim Vest – $27.99 | Leggings – $8 | Boots – $34.99 | Satchel – $29.99

The longest peice always goes under the layer. Tanks (especially striped ones), polos and tees are the best choice.

The idea is to have fun and not put too much thought into layered looks.  See how the Target Fall Collection is designed to take you through a season of stylish looks at Target.com/Merona.

Nothing is more fun and inspiring in fashion than changing trends and fresh ideas.  But to truly enjoy the art of getting dressed, it’s important to have basic must-have pieces that simplify your life without sacrificing style and offer a ton of options for mixing and matching (whether your style is preppy, urban or classic!).  Check out this season’s must-have pieces by Merona from Target and what to wear them with.

Button Down – $18 |  Pull Over – $52 | Jeans – $22.39 | Boots – $35.99
1. A shawl pullover puts a nice, stylish upgrade on a sweatshirt and can be worn with everything from tees and shorts to jeans and button down’s.
Corduroy Pant – $19.99 | Button Down – $22.39 | Puffer Vest – $22 | Henley – $12.99 | Boots – $35.99
2. A good fitting pair of jeans or cords is a must-have, and if paired with the right pieces can be worn for a night out on the town or for a casual look for work.  In this look I chose a to add a puffer vest which is a perfect transitional piece.
Tailored Wash Chino’s – $22.39 | Poplin Shirt – $18 | Sweater – $18 |  Watch – $40
3. Chinos (especially colored) are denim’s “dressier brother” but with a preppy vibe that spruces up any outfit and are comfy and easy to style.  Pair them with blazers, tees or even sweatshirts.  Tip: for a more casual look try stylish slip-on sneakers (like these) or boots.
 Long Sleeve Button Down – $19.99 | White Oxford – $18 | Peacoat – $51.99 | Jeans – $22.39 | Scarf – $13.59 | Boots – $39.99
4. A button down (particularly white ones) is a no brainer and gives any outfit a crisp, clean look.  Tip: don’t tuck shirt instead slightly tuck one side in for an effortless stylish look.
Merona Kensington Blazer – $31.59
5. A good fitted blazer is a necessity in everyone’s closet and instantly adds a polished look day or night with any of the pieces above.
