Good-bye sundress, hello moth balls
In Florida, it's hard to know which pieces to moth ball. It's still dang hot, but wearing a tropical sundress in October says "tourist," not "diva." Still, when to put the white pants in the back closet? When to break out the light wool sweater set?
There are few rights and wrongs this close to the equator. Here are my thoughts:
1. Sundress or fall frock?
Any sundress in the hue of an umbrella-worthy frosted drink is a goner. Dry clean and store until spring. You can still wear light frocks in year-round colors. Consider pairing with a bolero or dark belt.
I think there's a line on how much white to wear after Labor Day. Pants, jackets and skirts are fine, but match with earth tones and primary colors instead of pastels. Personally, I trade out my strappy white sandals for champagnes and nudes this time of year.
3. Darken Easter egg hues
Transitioning pastels from summer to fall requires care, but you'll feel like a genius when you pull it off. Consider pairing a yellow top with a brown skirt. Lavender and black will work together into the winter. Make a black or brown belt your new BFF.
