Fall can be a tricky season to dress for. One day it’s cool, then next day it’s 80 degrees & you’re sweating through your blouse. As awesome as a heat wave in the middle of fall is, it kinda messes with our heads and outfit planning. It’s got us craving something comfortable, but also versatile enough to wear on a warm day or a cooler one – shirt dresses.

This style is very forgiving (perfect for a “feeling-fat” day), comfortable enough for a long day, and goes well with simple pumps or boots & tights.

Killer color combo. Our closets cannot get enough of the ying-yang shades. Not only is it good fung shui, but black & white are also super chic. Throw on some big sunnies and a don’t smile – now you look like you just came from Paris fashion week.

Style Tips

Heatwave: Roll the sleeves, pull hair into a low bun, and wear try a peep-toe clog on for size. They work every season as long as there isn’t snow on the ground.
