Happy first day of fall everyone!
In the words of my good friend Joanna on fall trends in the south, “it’s a real thing and it sucks.”
I know this may not apply to most of you… but what do you do when all of the retail stores come out with their fall lines in the beginning of August, and you live somewhere where it’s still 100º and hotter than ever?? It’s an issue that us ladies in the south have to deal with every year.
Instead of avoiding fall fashion completely.. I have come up with a few compromises that offer realistic alternatives to those staple fall pieces.
Instead of ankle booties, try:
Instead of long sleeve shirts, try:
Instead of flannel, try:
Instead of long jeans, try:
Instead of big sweaters, try:
Instead of cardigans, try:
Here are some of the ways that I style these pieces:
*Also note… you can still wear shorts! The sweater above is lightweight and has slits on the sides to make it breathable. When paired with shorts and booties, it makes the perfect transition outfit for fall.
What are some other ways that you all try to beat the heat? I would love to hear from you and get your feedback! Especially if there is something I missed!
