Layered Slip Dresses

Dresses aren’t going anywhere and will be bigger than ever in the fall. Specifically everyone will be wearing layered slip dresses. Emily Irons notes that not only have slip dresses made a huge comeback, but people won’t be able to wait to be able layer them to keep wearing as fall turns into winter.

“We’re already putting together outfits layering our thin turtlenecks and mock neck T-shirts beneath the slips,” Irons said.

Unique Layering

This upcoming fall it will be all about putting a new spin on the layering.

“This season, we made sure to invest in pieces that could be worn multiple ways. A lot of the garments we selected for the store have buttons or snaps along the sides in order to be worn alone or layered over pants, skirts, or a slip dress,” the gang at In Support Of said.


Ruffles are a somewhat unexpected trend for fall/winter, but according to Irons she’s keeps seeing ruffles accenting garments in unexpected places. The store will soon be receiving pieces from NYC based designer Allina Liu, which have ruffled accents, placed throughout items such as trousers, tops and dresses.

Updates On Classic Silhouettes

Such as items like as button up oxfords and crew neck sweaters have cut out detailing on the shoulders and necks, turning a staple piece into a statement piece.
