How to dress for fall when it does not feel like fall
I am not sure where you live, but in Florida, where we live, it has not been feeling like fall. In fact, not only does it not feel like fall, it actively feels like summer, with highs that have been hovering around 90 degrees. And with this stubborn weather comes a fashion dilemma: When do we get to wear our cute fall clothes?
If you're sick of all the clothes you rotated through during the summer months, here are some tips for bringing some fall flair to your warbdrobe. Maybe the weather will follow suit soon enough. (Hark! I see highs in the 70s in the distance!)
Light layers: And we mean light. No cardigans or pullovers here. Try layering collared short-sleeve or sleeveless shirts under dressy T's or sheer shirts.
Booties: Let's face it: Booties aren't really practical cold-weather footwear options, which makes them perfect for rocking during unseasonably warm fall days. All the cute fall flair of a boot, none of the icky sweat factor. Look for brown varieties in textures like suede and leather (erm, pleather). Pair with a long-sleeve or 3/4-sleeve dress.
Warm colors: Look for summery fits and styles - think sleeveless A-line dresses and mini skirts - in autumnal colors like maroon, forest green, brown and mustard yellow.
Embrace fancy shorts: Shorts, people! It is still hot enough to rock shorts. Depending on your workplace's dress code, you can opt for this look in your office or save it for the weekends. Start with a fancy pair of shorts, which means no jorts but instead something colorful, textured, patterned or with a scalloped edge. Pair them with a neutral blazer or structured shirt and a fun wedge heel.
