Karen Kane Pencil Sleeve Faux Wrap Dress, $108 (size XS – XL)
Early fall, or back to school time as it is now in many of our homes, is always a tricky time to get dressed. We’re not ready to fully commit to cool weather clothes, but our summer pieces somehow seem out of place. This dress, with its perfect length sleeves and stretch jersey is as versatile as it is flattering. I like it in black and eggplant though the brown is a lovely option if you focus more on earth tones in your wardrobe. Wear it to work now with a simple pump and pair with tights and ankle boots when the weather is chilly. To add more interest, consider a lightweight scarf, or stack of bracelets. As you’re shopping this time of year, look for transition pieces. These are pieces you can wear this time of year and in early spring.
