Choosing the Right Clothes for Fall
Plan on layering your clothes. Temperatures fluctuate greatly during the fall. Mornings will be chilly, afternoons will be hot, and evenings will be cool again. If you are at work or at school all day long, you may not have the time to change your clothes. The best way to manage this is by wearing layers, which you can take off as the day grows warmer.
Wear shirts that can be layered. If you live in a place that gets cooler weather during fall, consider wearing some short-sleeved or long-sleeved shirts; these can be worn under cardigans, or over lacy tank tops. You may also wear turtlenecks and button-up shirts and blouses. If you live in a place that gets warmer weather, you can wear tank tops and short-sleeved shirts. Here are some more ideas:
Wear a lacy tank top under a long-sleeved shirt with a scooped neckline. The lace will peep out from under the neckline, giving you a feminine look while keeping you warm.
Wear a plaid, button-up shirt over a white tank top or short-sleeved shirt. For a classic fall look, pair this with some jeans and work boots.
Consider layering jumpers or knitted dresses over a long-sleeved shirt and some tights or leggings.
Choose appropriate outerwear. The mornings and evenings during fall are usually cold, while the afternoons are warm. Because of this, you want to wear something over your shirt that can be easily taken off. Here are some suggestions:
If you live in a place that is relatively warm during the fall, wear light coats, cardigans, and sweaters. Avoid anything too thick or warm.
If you live in a place that is cold and wet during the fall, consider wearing a jacket or a long trench coat. You can also wear heavier coats, cardigans, and sweaters.
Hoodies are great for all sorts of weather; they can also be easily tied around your waist when it gets too warm.
Wear long pants and skirts. If you really want to wear shorter skirts or shorts, consider layering them with dark-colored leggings or tights for a chic, fashionable look. Long jeans and dark-colored slacks are perfect for fall. Here are some more ideas:
If you wear skinny jeans, you can tuck them into a pair of boots.
Pair a wool or tweed skirt with a pair of dark, solid-colored tights or leggings.
Wear boots and sneakers. Fall is the time to put away your wedges, pumps, sandals, and flip flops. Instead, wear close-toed shoes, sneakers, and boots. Here are some ideas:
Got cozy and comfortable with a pair of fur-lined bulky boots.
For cool, damp falls, opt for a pair ofcombat, military, or work boots.
If you live in a place that gets warmer weather during fall, you can wear canvas shoes
You can also wear some fashionable riding boots, knee-high boots, or calf-length boots.
Gather some warm weather accessories. Accessories such as scarves, hats, and gloves not only keep you warm, but they are also easy to put away for when the day gets warm. Here are some ideas:
For hats, try a newsboy cap, or hats made from felt or tweed.
For scarves, try something made from flannel with a solid or plaid pattern. Avoid wearing wool or knitted scarves, unless you live in a cooler climate.
Gloves are the most versatile. Consider wearing some suede or leather gloves. If you live in a warmer climate, try on a pair of finger-less gloves.
