Boo, your fun date plans got rained out. Curl up on the couch with Netflix and a big bowl of popcorn instead. Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear has a perfect look for the occasion. Pair a loose lace dress and a pretty necklace with high socks, a blanket sweater (more of those here), and classic riding boots. Voilà! Consider yourself ready for cuddling.

Calypso St. Barth lace sheath dress, $359; Ralph Lauren cashmere wrap sweater, $636; Elva Fields Bursting With Pride necklace, $168; Halogen riding boot, $219.95; Rabens Saloner socks, $21



We totally dig the irreverent pajama look E of District of Chic is pulling off right here. If you're brave enough to pull off palazzo pants, pair 'em with an easy graphic tee and some '80s-inspired accessories, and polish everything off with an loose-fitting boyfriend blazer. Now you're ready to head to brunch at the cool new spot in Shaw you keep meaning to check out.

Elizabeth and James wide-leg pants, $345; Jack Wills wool blazer, $328; Juicy Couture T-shirt, $65; ASOS lion-head belt, $26.86; Delia's ten-piece bracelet set, $12.50; Steve Madden suede slipper, $119.95.



Stay warm while you catch a movie ( Hunger Games, anyone?) in light layers à la Caitlin of Style Within Reach. Mix spring staples like a sleeveless vest with the fur collar you wore all winter, then slip on ankle booties--a heel is key for keeping your maxi skirt from dragging through the puddles--so your toes stay warm.

Wallis Maxi skirt, $61; T by Alexander Wang long-sleeved tee, $81; Sam Edelman booties, $160 at Singer22; Victoria's Secret faux-fur collar, $19.99; Old Navy twill vest, $29.99; Michael Kors gold watch, $180.
