Fall Style with LEOTA

I hate wearing chunky sweaters. I get hot and sweaty within minutes in a chunky sweater.
My skin hates wool and cashmere clothes too. It's a very itchy fabric and too hot to wear especially when the stores have their heaters blasting, and when you go in and out of different stores down Broadway, I'm just not comfortable.
 I'll probably end up getting a cold, maybe a bad cough too at the end of the day.
I do get cold easily so to keep myself warm and comfortable, I layer my outfits!
 On this post, I'll show you how I styled two Summer dresses from
for the Fall weather!

About the brand

Founder Sarah Carson launched Leota in 2011 with her first Spring Collection. She named her line after her great-grandmother, Leota.
Art, pattern and color is seen everywhere in Leota.
These bold prints are all hand-made in house. All dresses are manufactured in NYC to maintain good relationships with their seamstresses and ensure good working conditions while supporting a strong economy. 
"...our dresses are always easy to wear: machine washable, wrinkle-free, travel friendly, comfortable."
LEOTA dresses are also sold on Amazon.com, Modcloth, Nordstrom, and other store retailers.

I have featured LEOTA on my blog before with their Combo Perfect Wrap here,
If you haven't read that one, I styled that dress so you can wear it either during the day time or at night!

This is a faux-wrap style dress with a belt. It has bracelet sleeves, V-neck line and has a fit-and-flare shape.
Matte Jersey: 95% Polyester / 5% Spandex
"The faux wrap style won't interfere with your work- whether you're chasing the money, the kids, or the sunshine.  Leota’s Perfect Wrap comes in custom, limited edition prints each season."

Going back to the very first photo on this post, I added a collared shirt underneath, to give it a higher neckline but still keeping the "V" neck line. 

This dress hits perfectly above the knees and the fit-and-flare shape, gave me "Mod Vibes", and so I paired this with my blue tights and cream colored booties! 
So it doesn't look too much of a 70's costume, I grabbed for a vegan leather jacket.

A shift dress with a boatneck line and bracelet sleeves. It also comes with a belt (which I did not use on this outfit). 
Gloss Knit: 94% Rayon / 6% Spandex

"A twist on the classic t-shirt dress. The Savanna is a pull-on-and-go shirt."

I kept this outfit more casual and comfy pairing it with black accessories head-to-toe.
Tights are a must since the dress is a mini shift dress style. The bomber jacket adds some shape to the shift silhouette. 

And who cares if wedge sneakers are out-of-style?! They elongate my legs and they're super comfy!
