Who doesn't love fall fashions? They are so chic and sophisticated. Sipping a Pumpkin Spice latte with visions of a chill in the air - such a dream for us here in Florida. I love flipping through the likes of Vogue, Marie Claire, and Woman's Day this time of year as these publications really embrace the fall season.
Colors with names like Fawn, Hazelnut, Cinnamon, Butterscotch, Birch, Juniper, and Cranberry invoke the feeling of crispness in the air and magical changing of the leaves. I can just get caught up in the scents and colors of the season.
Then I walk outside my door and snap right out of it as the humidity and heat slap me in the face. What kind of crazy woman would I be to grab a puffer jacket or embrace the leather trend?!
Even if I can't embrace everything Fall, I am not going to miss out on this beautiful season. I'm opting for some cute textured sweaters layered over a tank and a fab pair of leggings. I'm ready for a rich chocolate bootie to make a statement and transition seasons.
Just because the weather isn't in our favor doesn't mean we can't still indulge in wearing the rich pallets of hues and styles that Autumn has to offer.
Here are a few ways to incorporate fall into your wardrobe while keeping cool and looking cozy:
Delight in winter white with a lightweight vest or jean jacket. White is always a good idea in Florida, and soft vanilla or ivory is one of the most flattering hues for any skin tone. These layering pieces can be thrown over a long dress to mix and match with other neutrals as outerwear pieces. The white jean jacket from New Direction is the perfect Florida outerwear piece for your fall wardrobe.
Layer up. A big luscious cashmere dress topper by Oli and Sophia is the perfect piece to stay versatile while in a chilly restaurant or theater.
Keep it Casual.
A casual plaid shirt
open over a great t-shirt, a novelty jean by Isadela
, and a fun sneaker are perfect for the upcoming Black Friday shopping. It will be essential to be comfortable all day!
Remember: White pants are not off-limits all year round here, so add a button-down shirt and chunky accessory and riding boot you're ready for a polo match. White will forever be the best base to take your look from Fall to Spring.
My husband, Bob, and I recently bought a sprinter van and are cruising around the state. We love the freedom that this new vehicle brings us. I will certainly be stopping by one of Anthony's 13 locations
to get my Florida fall wardrobe in sync.
As the daylight gets shorter and the hemlines get longer, switch up your wardrobe and add a little spice to more than your latte!
