As the weather cools, it’s time to start “snuggling up” to Fall’s cooler climate. With the first day of Autumn on Thursday, September 22nd, let’s usher in the new Season in a cozy way. This week, we focus on several ways you can “wrap up” in the colorful Season ahead. Take a look at our suggestions below.
Ah, the first few days of Fall. Thoughts of cozy knits and new boots quickly spring to mind. But before you switch over your closet to the heavier threads, consider keeping what is perhaps the single most transitional piece in constant rotation: the wrap dress. Not only is it timeless and all-occasion, it’s seasonless, too—a look that can go easily from day to night, from Summer to Fall.
The trick to properly transitioning the wrap dress is to start thinking in layers. When worn over a slim bodysuit and jeans, a “kimono” version is given new life, particularly when elevated by a great pair of heels.
A swift shoe swap (sturdy boots for strappy sandals) will fare in more challenging climate conditions.
And a lacy slip worn underneath a shirted style takes the look into cocktail territory. But don’t just stop at the wrap dress: Take a look at our other “wrapped” Fall ideas you won’t want to miss below.

You can also create a warm embracing environment with your own wrapped candle holders. Fall is the Season for sweet cinnamon, spicy pumpkin, and crisp leaf scents from your favorite candle shop. Accentuate your favorite candles with a homemade wrapped decor.
Simply use a glue gun and run a bead around the candle and affix each leaf. Then, take the ribbon you’ll be using and wrap both the leaves and candle, tying with a droopy bow.
And finally, nothing can keep you as warm as being wrapped up in love. Whether it’s your kids, your partner, or your family, don’t forget to extend your love to the people that mean the most to you.
