There are many different clothing styles to love, and maybe your personal wardrobe either follows one design aesthetic or is a variety of many. Regardless of how you like to dress, there’s a clothing style you’re definitely going to want to wear this fall. While many people begin to think of sweaters, hot drinks, campfires, and jackets when they think of fall, the truth is that most places have lingering warm weather throughout the first few months after summer officially ends. You could rush to the back of your wardrobe and bundle up in sweaters, but on the warmer days, you’d be cooking inside them until the weather actually cools down.

Instead, during the in-between weather that’s not as hot as summer, but with just enough of a cool breeze to be comfortable, you should wear outfits that embrace the mid-seasonal weather. The trend we love for the post-summer weather is coastal-inspired boho clothing. Although you might not be so lucky as to be spending your early fall in a coastal cottage on the beach, with these outfit choices, you can pretend you’re there. Channel your inner East- or West-Coaster with these seven boho clothing outfits from Johnny Was.

When you aren’t sure how to dress for the fickle weather outside, pairing a maxi dress with high-heeled boots is an outfit that could fit multiple seasons. The length and amount of material on the dress will keep you warm should the weather turn, but the lightweight fabric is still perfect for balmy days. Boots look great any time of the year, but they have the added effect of providing warmth.

Printed Vest, Sports Bra, and Leggings

There are a million reasons to love vests! They are practically the perfect clothing item to pull out when you’re transitioning between warm and cool weather. Slim-fitting vests add warmth and insulation without adding bulk, and because they’re sleeveless, you can layer them over long- or short-sleeved tops to reach the perfect temperature, no matter the weather. A boho clothing vest in a whimsical pattern looks chic over any outfit, from a dress to leggings.
