Black and White Print Mix.

Lots of black and white with a tweed dress and wool coat.

Think you can’t mix prints and textures? You absolutely can. Keep the color palette simple– like black and white, for example– and the game gets easier. I grabbed a striped wool coat and threw it over the top of a tweed dress. Now this dress is normally a summer pick for me– it’s sleeveless, which makes it great for the office in July. But throw a wool statement coat over the top? Now you’re talkin’ November. Black suede booties, silver jewelry, and mirrored silver sunnies make this a great outfit for both upcoming holiday parties and fall + winter date nights.

Shop the look:

Even though this black and white tweed dress is sleeveless, I’m going to extend its use for the colder months by using jackets and blazers to warm it up. Another trick? A thin black or white turtleneck layered underneath. Boom: a dress that stretches all year long.
