Now, we love fall for so many reasons. The cozy sweaters, colorful leaves around us, plenty of time to sip copious amounts of hot cocoa, all of our riding boots that we can now wear without judgment, and pumpkin spice-flavored anything.
However, the colder weather makes it difficult to wear our favorite sleeveless dresses and tops as we normally would during the spring or summer.
So, in order to accommodate the chilly temps, we turn to layering and end up bundling up more. But, who says you have to give up fashion to be warm? Check out some of our favorite ways to layer your favorite Muehleder dresses all winter long.
Next up, check out how our girl Kelsey paired her candy apple-red Mila Dress with a sheer black turtleneck blouse, sheer black stockings, and black pumps that have us feeling all the cozy fall vibes.
Now, it’s your turn rock the layered look! Hey, ‘tis the season! Peep some of these chic basics to layer under your Muehleder tops and dresses all fall and winter long.
1. Just like Kelsey, you can easily pop a turtleneck sweater underneath your Mila Dress to winter-fy it in a way that’ll keep you nice and toasty. With the Mila Dress available in such bright hues, this black or heather grey sweater from J. Crew will keep you warm but won’t distract from the star of the show: That killer dress.
Case in point, check out how Larissa paired a chunky black turtleneck sweater and black fishnet tights under the white Made You Look Dress. She accessorized this perfect fall look with black booties, handbag, and sunglasses.

2. Next up, we have this winter white or camel-colored fitted turtleneck from Banana Republic. This neutral-colored sweater will add a bit of winter flare when paired with your colorful Made You Look Dress for a bit of contrast.
3. Everlane makes this fitted cotton turtleneck in neutral colors that’ll perfectly complement your Made You Look Dress. Since the top is originally sleeveless, adding a warm turtleneck underneath is a great way to stay warm without giving up your Muehleder staples simply because you’d be too cold.
4. For those of you, like moi, who are always down for a good bargain, you’ll feel so cozy and fall-chic in this budget-friendly, colorful Target sweater. You can coordinate your Made You Look Dress with its matching pink or yellow hues, bring in some color-blocking with the black sweater, or make your white dress pop against the colorful, striped sweater.
5. When you want to transition your dress, we highly recommend this turtleneck bodysuit from Everlane. With the bright colors of the Mila Dress, this black garment will really help the blouse stand out during any fall gatherings and you won’t have to block the garment because you have to add your heaviest jacket to stay warm.
Sure, turtlenecks, sweaters, and bodysuits are easy ways to up your layering game this winter, but there are other looks and accessories to try on for size too.
1. Now, just like Kelsey, a fun way to finish off your fall layered look is by adding sheer sexy socks or staying cozy in warm, fuzzy socks over your chic heels. These mesh options from Etsy are so cute and the UGG options from Nordstrom or colored ones from Uniqlo will add a whimsical street-style vibe to any layered ensemble.
2. After seeing on IG how Kelsey pulled off a sheer blouse underneath her Mila Dress, we were obsessed with her styling and couldn’t wait to recreate it for ourselves. We found this long-sleeved sheer option from Asos and we’re loving how this will look underneath the Mila, giving it a sultry fall vibe.
3. For a garment like the Made You Look Dress that has such volume and flair, whatever you layer it with also needs to step up and match the level of glam of the dress. A great pair of patterned tights will bring all the edge to the look, just like this Spanx pair. It has a romantic heart pattern that runs down your legs and a built-in mid-thigh tummy shaper to help smooth out your lines.
For example, peep how Larissa paired this Urban Outfitters pair of fishnets with the white dress. She added a black, chunky turtleneck under the dress up top with the tights and ankle boots on the bottom. Talk about fall chic!
