Keep wearing dresses this Autumn

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to dress for. 

It's all about layering and being able to still wear your favourite pieces.
Everyone thinks that when it gets colder all your dresses need to be put away for the months ahead. But this isn't the case. 
Thanks to the surge of 90s style coming back and the Clueless fans rejoicing, you can now layer your favourite dresses on top of a polo neck to make the cosiest autumnal looks. 
You could even pair it with chunky knit tights and a pair of biker boots for extra warmth. 

This checkered dress takes me back to my teens where I had a pretty much identical one also from Zara. (Good to know they're recycling designs, hey?)
On my recent trip to Stockholm, I paired it with a polo neck, vans and an oversized Weekday trucker jacket. 
The dress itself has an oversized feel but being slightly on the plus size, I needed to wear a belt to cinch in that waist and make it look like I wasn't wearing a tent!
