So, you've gotten in the autumn mood. You're ready for pumpkin spice and salted caramel, sweaters, scarves and tall boots. There's only one little problem: you may be feeling like fall, but the weather is feeling like summer. How is a stylish chick supposed to get her autumn on when the temps are sky high and there's not even a hint of cool in the air? Well, for starters, she can take a tip from Nikki. Go with cool, comfortable pieces, but do them in fall-leaning colors. Play with orange, mustard, red, chocolate, dusty pink and olive green. This palette can help you feel like it's fall, even while you use pieces that keep you comfortable in summer temps: free-flowing skirts, casual tees. Use a lace-up version or a deep-v silhouette for a hint of sexy a la Nikki. Don't fear going sleeveless either; that's a perfect reason to top your look with an open-weave or crochet sweater that brings in that autumn vibe you're more than ready for. Go with breezy boho prints that cross seasonal boundaries, or dark florals that are spot on-trend and have a more somber feel than lighthearted brights. Avoid summer staples like linen, gingham, eyelet or gauzy/crinkle fabrics (but pleats are definitely do-able!). Multi-season materials like silk and cotton (choose heavier iterations such as twill or denim, all-season jersey) will cross weather boundaries. Lace is a gorgeous all-year-round option as well. Finish the look off with something suede. An autumn-only material for years, it's come into all-year use so recently that it still carries that fall connotation. Its sumptuous texture enhances that idea. Nikki would doubtless go with a fashion-forward shoe, such as a pee-toe bootie, so lean in that direction if you're channeling Bella 1.0. If you're more of a Bella 2.0 boho girl, closed-toe ankle booties would work perfectly with an informal skirt. If your bottom layer is a bit fancier, pair it with a chic pump.
