Dressing for Autumn
Updated: Jan 10
Days are getting shorter and nights are getting longer and colder. The leaves are beginning to turn brown and fall off the trees.
The first rain of the season fell yesterday and all the autumn clothing was still packed away. It always happens like that, long, hot sunny days and all of a sudden that fresh rain smell in the air and then the first shower of the season.
Its definitely time to get the Autumn wardrobe organized. But how does one do it? There are still many hot days to come and nights will be colder and maybe wetter as well.
Dressing in layers is the trick. Mornings will be cooler and darker and the day will gradually warm up and might even still be hot at noon.
A short sleeved bolero over a tank dress works perfectly now, the mornings are cool but its stil hot at noon.
Wear clothing in layers, a short or long sleeved t shirt or dress, over that a t shirt bolero, a vest or a button down shirt.
A longer skirt with a tank top and a longer cardigan which can be removed when it becomes warmer.
Now is the time to take out t shirt jewelry and scarves which are light weight accessories but too warm to wear in the summer.
Tunics over leggings with a bolero or vest which can be removed as the day heats up.
Enjoy the lightweight layers.
