Inspiration Board: Wearing A Maxi Dress For Fall

Look at Olivia Wilde trying to be all incognito in the photo above. It’s okay, Liv, we’re paying more attention to your early fall look than you, actually. Why are we so smitten with her ensemble, you might ask? Well for starters, we’re suckers for stripe maxi dresses. But even more than that, we love that Olivia took a summer staple and made it appropriate for fall. The trick to successfully working a maxi dress for autumn is to have hints of skin showing while also adding rugged leather and suede pieces. That way you don’t look as if you’re trying to push the season too far or hold on to the last one. A word of caution, though: your leather items should be more boho than biker.
