Sssh….can you hear that? It sounds like FALL in Arizona.
Gone is that stark, hot, slap in the face I’d feel opening the door during the summer. It’s all breezyness and loveliness these days and I couldn’t be happier about it.
It’s funny what weather does to your mood, isn’t it? All around, people are happier. And the gals are just waiting, waiting for the signal to break out the boots! I know I am most certainly ready.
But it isn’t time yet.
And so, we must transition. Transition to Fall Fashion. Without looking season confused, that is. From swimsuits paired with sweaters as seen from my window to over-the-knee boots when it’s still 80 degrees, it’s a confusing time of year. Half the people are clinging onto summer garb and the rest have embraced winter way too early. Here’s how to transition to fall fashion, without looking season confused.
1. Break out the booties.
If you’re itching to put on those boots, try on a pair of booties; open-toed is good, too. But don’t break out those over-the-knee or knee-high pairs just yet. We’re still in transition mode.
2. Think in layers.
It may be in the 70s in the morning but it goes right back up to the 90s by mid-afternoon. So when you’re getting dressed, think in layers. Cute cardigans should be your go-to. Invest in emerald green, preppy and sport looks that are hot fashion trends for fall.
3. Play with colors.
It isn’t cold enough yet for your leather leggings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start embracing some of fall’s hottest color trends. Need a refresher? Think: Emerald green, winter whites, ruby, cobalt blue and monochromatic color combinations, like red on red.
4. Have fun with leather.
Like it or not leather anything is a hot fall 2013 fashion trend. Leather skirts, tops, dresses pants–you name it, there’s loads of leather. If you aren’t exactly the leather skirt wearing type, try a blouse or dress that incorporates leather details.
Are you as excited for all as I am? How do you transition your look?
