24 Aug Turning Heads Linkup-Transitional Fall Outfit- Wearing the Colors of Fall When It’s Still Summer
As my English friends would say, ” It’s bloody hot!”
or poignantly said, by Miss Jane Austen, English novelist, “What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps us in a state of inelegance.”
I really just want to quote her when I am out, wiping the sweat from my brow. 🙂
Transitioning to Fall with COLOR
What’s a lady to do when we have visions of cable knit sweaters and fabulous leather booties dancing in our heads? As we impatiently await the next season’s way of dressing?
We must do what any good Southerner would do. Keep fantasizing, and in the meantime, wear the COLORS of Fall.
I typically love to do some transitional outfits in between Sept and October, but I did get a bit impatient this year.
September is still one hot month here in NC, so instead I look through my closet for colors such as greens, mustards, red, and burnt orange.
Today’s look involves a satin type dress in a warm, toasty shade of rust. You know it is one of my favorite Fall colors, but I have to be careful not to overwhelm my closet with this shade. Think of leaf colors and go from there.
I bought this satin-line midi dress from one of my favorite stores, Mango. I liked the clean lines and simplicity, and saw myself styling it nearing Fall and into winter with boots and other layers.
The croc brown strappy sandals are also Mango and a great transitional shoe when its too hot to stifle those tootsies, quite yet.
I love to add a scarf for pattern and to add more interest to a look. I’ve had this one for years, from Poshmark.
I certainly would wear this dress in Fall and as it got chillier, adding a moto jacket and some tall boots as an option.
This outfit, again, combined a shade of brown ( rust) with black. Notice i Have done this with accessories. If you had missed my other posts on Combining Black with Brown, have a read.
I’ve styled it with and without the belt to show you how the addition of certain accessories changes the look.
Have you styled some Fall colors yet? In the hotter climates, how do you transition to Fall?
I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
