Want to wear your bohemian dresses all year round? Easy- just pair them with heavy cable-knit ponchos and knee high boots and you've got yourself a late fall outfit. Play up the autumnal theme by choosing a palette of rich browns, soft cremes, and deep reds. which will help with the summer transition. Add a fun pompom baseball hat for some cheek, and go to the neighborhood confectionery to learn how to make your own truffles. Work with bittersweet chocolate and toasted coconut while you sip hot chocolate, and try to keep a humble face as compliments start pouring in. 

  1. Poetry for Jane '70s bohemian tent dress (only $27!)
  2. Zara cowlneck poncho
  3. H&M knee high boots
  4. BCBG snowbunny baseball hat


It's hard not to play with everyone's favorite fall staple: the plaid skirt. Go for a prim and polished look with yours by pairing it with a tie-neck silk blouse and pill box hat. To really play into the feminine style you're giving off with the bow, choose a cape coat as your outerwear, and a croc bucket bag as your purse to keep the look sophisticated. Then to give your outfit a touch of youth opt for unexpected footwear, like a pair of heavy Dr. Martens. Unexpected, but still sleek.

Sometimes you have a Holly Golightly moment and don't wake up till noon. So stay true to character and put your hair up into a big ballerina bun and slip into some glitter heels to catch a croissant and coffee breakfast. To go with those heels, pair a brightly colored chiffon party dress with a heavy cable knit poncho for a playful contrast. To further deconstruct the elegant dress into something appropriate for a Thursday, match your turtleneck poncho with a faux fur snood, and some tortoise shell glasses. Then, stifling a yawn, go catch the elevator and hope that all the chocolate croissants haven't been snapped up yet.

Sweater dresses are (or should be) every girl's go-to once the weather gets mean outside. Warm enough to keep the cold out of your bones, but every bit as stylish as its summer counterparts, this is a piece that's super fun to play with. When going to get some ace tacos and tallboys with friends, go for a minimal but quirky look to the cash-only bar. Pair your turtleneck sweater dress with a statement winter coat to offset the simpleness of the piece, and then play with accessories by having them contrast in feel. For example, pair clunky forest green winter boots with a sophisticated and sleek handbag. The juxtaposition will make for a playful look, and the continue to give the outfit some personality by choosing quirky socks and some brightly tinted sunglasses. For an outfit like this, I'd give you a free taco ;)
