I’ve spent a lot of time talking about how excited I am about fall fashion. What I failed to mention was, it is still truly summer outside. Mid-80*s summer. Needless to say, I have been forced to come up with some modified autumn looks. Besides, if I were to run around in a true fall coat—well, I would be a glistening mess (because girls don’t sweat, they glisten…).
And something tells me I am not the only one suffering from these games played by Mother Nature.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Clothing that gives a nod to fall, while still remaining true to the heat. Genius. I know.
And to take it a step further, I have assembled a few street-style-looks from Milan Fashion Week that solve this seasonal conundrum. (I would say When in Rome— but, these girls are in Milan!)
- Add a blazer to summer favorites.
- Embrace autumn hues and textures.
- Lose the tights—bare your legs!
- Keep blouses lightweight, but add layers.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite? How do you find a balance between the temps and the seasons?
