I’m visiting a sister in Atlanta, GA right now and the warm weather this late in the season is taking me back to my high school years in Hawaii. When all the fashion world was abuzz with fall looks and heavy layers, I was in Honolulu where it might get cool enough add night to wear a sweater, but never a heavy winter coat.
So, how does one bring “fall” into the wardrobe when the weather doesn’t agree? I have a few ideas: -wear fall colors: think jewel tones, autumnal leaves, and neutrals instead of brights and florals -pile on light layers: fall is quintessentially about layers, so bring in vests and sheer blouses for the look without the heatstroke -mix fall basics with cooler clothes: boots and scarves are meant for cold temperatures, but they can still be worn with lightweight dresses without the fear of heatstroke -autumnal makeup: there’s something wonderfully fall about a dark berry stain on the lips
