September and early October are easily two of my favorite months for wearing maxi dresses (Go Make Noise Slub Knit Maxi Dress from Urban Outfitters, $59.00). A fix for the cooler weather? A stand-out sweater (Longline Crochet Sweater from Forever21, $17.80). If your maxi is patterned, stick to a neutral top or vice versa.
