I have a hard time saying goodbye to summer. As much as I can’t wait for Dunkies to bring back pumpkin spice and for the leaves to change colors, I like walking barefoot, I love the smell of the ocean, and I appreciate the luxury of taking a cute picture at 8PM without flash. I’m also a dress girl; I buy dresses more than I buy anything. I think we collectively think as autumn as the time to put away the dresses, and I don’t think that has to be the case. Dresses can easily be styled to suit fall temperature and fashion.
Fall is one of the best seasons for fashion because it’s cool enough to layer and experiment but warm enough that you generally don’t have to worry about sacrificing style in the name of practicability. With scarves, stalkings, tights, jackets, sweaters, boots, hats and other accessories, summer chic transitions smoothly into fall flair. Personally, I think that seasonal color palettes are out dated and that you can dress like a bowl of skittles in the dead of winter if you so choose, but if you ascribe to seasonal color palettes I recommend using analogous color schemes or pairing brighter, more vibrant colors with more subdued neutrals.
