Hey cats and kittens! Sorry I’ve been so infrequent about posting. Between school and black widow bites, life is a little bit loca lately. Bear with me. It’ll get better eventually.
Today, for your reading pleasure, I have something I’ve been thinking about lately. How do you take summer clothing and make it appropriate for fall? I like in New Mexico, and the temperatures are just barely starting to change, but I still want it to seem like fall! Here are my best tips:
Nothing screams fall like a pair of cute leather boots. Wear your summer sundress, but add boots to give it a fall feel.
Summer clothing tends to be light or bright colors, and light fabrics. And that’s great. But as fall rolls around, our wardrobes should start to get a little bit darker. To me, fall is all about contrast. Think about bright leaves next to the dark brown of a tree trunk. So to carry summer clothing into fall, create that contrast. I like to do that with a dark brown or black belt, over, say, a sundress. Pick one to match your boots! 😉
Fall weather is known for being unpredictable, at least here! If you wear something warm enough when you get up in the morning, it can be too hot by the afternoon. My solution is cardigans. This also adds warmth so that your summer pieces can be carried all the way to winter. You don’t have to have a completely different wardrobe for different seasons!
Scarves are as indicative of autumn as a pumpkin spice latte. But what do you do if you live in a warmer climate like New Mexico? Well, use a lighter scarf. A silk or chiffon scarf can still look like fall, but not overheat you!
These are some of my favorite fall fashion tips…what are yours? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
