It's that in between season when we start getting excited for updated color schemes and looks for fall, but it's still downright HOT. Well at least it is here in Missouri! The best way to transition into fall is to start incorporating elements of the season's style while still staying comfortable in higher temperatures. Here are some tips to help you create stylish outfits for those transitional fall days when it's still warm outside:
Choose lightweight fabrics: Opt for breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, chambray, and lightweight knits. These materials will keep you cool while adding a touch of autumn to your look.
Earthy tones and prints: Embrace fall colors and prints, such as warm earthy tones like mustard yellow, olive green, rust, and burgundy. Consider incorporating these colors into your outfits through accessories, tops, or skirts.
Layer with versatility: Instead of heavy layers, choose versatile lightweight layers. A cardigan, kimono, or a light denim jacket can add a touch of fall without making you too hot.
Half-tuck your shirts: The half-tuck creates a casual, yet put-together look. Tuck just the front of your shirt into your pants or skirt for an effortlessly stylish appearance.
Midi skirts and dresses: Midi-length skirts and dresses can be a great option for warmer fall days. They offer a little more coverage but still allow airflow and movement.
Ankle boots or booties: Swap out sandals for ankle boots or booties to add a fall touch to your outfit while keeping your feet comfortable.
- Accessorize with fall elements: Incorporate fall-themed accessories like statement jewelry with autumn colors, leather bracelets, or a stylish wide-brimmed hat
- Open-back or cutout tops: These tops can add a hint of autumn style while allowing your skin to breathe in warm weather.
- High-waisted bottoms: Pairing high-waisted pants or skirts with a tucked-in top can create a chic and flattering look, perfect for fall.
Remember, the key is to strike a balance between incorporating fall elements and dressing for the warm weather. Mix and match these tips to create stylish and comfortable outfits that embrace the spirit of fall while keeping you cool during the transitional season.
