One of the best things about So Cal is that our summer days typically last well into the Fall months on the calendar. I love the long, warm evenings spent outside with family as the year winds down. However, it can make dressing for Fall a little difficult. Here are a few ways I make it feel like Fall fashion when the temps are anything but brisk:
1) ADD LIGHT LAYERS
I have an arsenal of booties with cutouts, long trenches without sleeves, and sweaters so thin you can almost see right through them ;) I mix and match them liberally with my shorts, dresses, and tees to make it feel like Fall when it doesn't.
Pro tip: Create space in your budget to add a new favorite each season! My cutout bootie collection grows each year, and it's something I always look forward to playing with. A few favorites this year include these booties with the low side wedge (I have this style a few years older and they're so comfortable!), this studded up pair (DYING!), and this tri-toned open toe number.
2) ACCESSORIZE LIKE IT'S COLD OUTSIDE
Hats, scarves, coats and boots all make it feel like Fall. Just be judicious in how you wear them. For example, a bandana is more comfortable than a full length scarf when it's warm, booties with open toes trump closed toe options, and coats without sleeves are better than those with.
Pro tip: try a beret instead of a felt fedora! It's not as heavy of a hat, so it won't be as warm. Here is a great selection for just $15!
3) DON'T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT
Curious how that midi skirt would look with OTK boots and a tee? Try it! The weather isn't quite sure what it is right now, so it's the perfect time to wear unconventional looks.
Pro tip: Don't stress about it too much! If it feels good on, go for it. This is a great opportunity to try new combos with old favorites.
