Who doesn’t love the fall issues of our beloved fashion magazines? Only problem is, many of these spreads focus on select areas that have more defined seasons. In the South we have times of the year I like to call, “fashion limbo.” Fashion limbo occurs when the next season has arrived in the fashion-sense, but the weather behaves otherwise. Some days you’ve got that perfect fall weather, while others throw us back to the sweltering summer months. This rollercoaster of temperatures is no reason for our style to suffer. Because of our dilemma, one must get a little creative. Here is my advice for those thirsting for fall fashion.
1. LAYER! The mornings have been getting chillier. Be prepared, and stylish. Take along a sweater or jacket, it isn’t much more to carry and haven’t you been waiting to pull out that cashmere sweater or tweed blazer? I know I have.
2. It’s Time. You’re rainbows, flip-flops, and (gasp) Jack Rogers’ sandals are ready for hibernation. Don’t worry; you’ll see them again next spring. They have been waiting for a break, anyway. And, major gain here, BOOTS. Ugg, Frye, high-rise, low-rise, heeled, flat and everything in between. If some of you are thinking, “but, my feet get hot,” balance your outfit. If it is a little warmer one day, pair your boots with a skirt instead of pants. Simple.
3. Fabric. Leather, corduroy, tweed and cashmere are your best friends for the next 6 months. This means leather satchels, corduroy pants, tweed tailored jackets and heavenly cashmere sweaters will fill your daily life. I know. I love it, too.
This is just a portion of all that makes up fall fashion. Remember to stay original. Put your own twist on the season’s best looks. Have fun with it.
