Summer To Fall: Managing The Fashion Transition Practically
While the summer trends are well and truly in fashion, our eyes look towards the fall months for inspiration. But, the change in style from summer to fall is quite a considerable one. Notably, the change in weather dictates that we go from nice summery dresses, to something a bit warmer. And, it can be difficult to gauge effectively, because you don't just want to be stylish, but you want to be comfortable as the season changes. So, how can you manage this effectively?
When thinking about practicality and style, a knitted jumper is something that may appear to be too chunky and warming, especially when managing those temperature changes. Choose a thinly knitted jumper for the first signs of fall, and gradually, as the temperature drops, you can choose a thicker and thicker jumper.
Adopt The Layering Technique
Layering is a technique that makes you comfortable yet stylish at the same time. You can adopt the simple approach of putting a jacket over your shoulders to add some class to your summer garments, or you can think about adding a wool blend cape or even a long line duster. A cape or shawl is a very simple way to add a layer of warmth and if it's too warm for capes, but you still need a little bit of temperature control, sites like fillyflair.com provide new accessories in the way of scarves. A scarf and hat combination is a simple way to add that little bit of warmth, even though you are dressed in summery outfits. And as the temperature drops, the art of layering becomes more and more refined. There's an abundance of hints on gurl.com to get you inspired for the winter months.
To Thermal Or Not To Thermal?
A very controversial, and possibly funny, choice for some, thermals might not screen stylish to you, but if you are adamant that you need to cling onto a summer style, thermals provide that extra bit of warmth without adding layer upon layer. As the weather changes from summer to fall, you may not know what to dress for, especially if the sun decides to make an appearance again in the middle of September. This is where thermals come in handy, as they can provide you that extra bit of warmth when the mornings are a bit chilly.
The Right Shoes (And The Right Pair Of Socks)
If you are used to flip-flops in the summer months, a chunky heel with a pair of tights is a simple way to add a bit of warmth to the lower half of your body, while still showing off your stylish dresses. The great thing about chunky heels is that they are comfortable and practical, meaning that you can wear them all day without feeling discomfort. And as the winter rears its head, you can sneak a pair of socks on underneath to make you feel nice and cozy.
The difficult thing about the fall months is that the temperature can go up and come back down, which is why it's important to be practical, but comfortable.
