A flowing midi in a sweet neutral, when well-accessorized, can be a totally versatile look. A simple henley and Chelsea boot are essentials you already have lying around anyway (right?), so put them to good use when trying out this trend for the first time.

Even those who work from home or freelance still need to be able to pull it together for client meetings and networking events. This look is polished, but a bright midi adds specialness to this outfit (and many more throughout the season!). Pair it with a cool knee-high boot for chillier days.

Is it just us, or is this look begging to go on a first date? Keeping accessories fun in fall tones makes this almost a no-brainer to pull together, which is a good thing when you're far too busy focusing on bringing your witty A-game to the table. Don't let teeny mini skirts have all the fun this fall, a little mystery can be hot, too.
