Considering that it is still August, the weather recently has started to turn more autumnal. The mornings and evenings are both starting to feel more chilly and I’m starting to think about my Autumn wardrobe.
Dressing in Autumn can be a bit hit or miss, some days it can still get really warm and others may be cooler and rainy and in order to feel comfortable in what I am wearing I need to dress for all sorts of weather. This is where layers come in really handy!
I like to layer long-sleeved tops under my summer dresses and add a thin cardigan over the top, and should the day warm up I can remove the long top or cardigan and still feel comfortable.
Another thing I like to do is utilise my leggings, wearing them under long skirts or dresses, or beneath thin trousers, or I will don a pair of tights under more summery clothing.
Footwear can be an awkward thing to figure out, it can still be warm enough for sandals but too wet to actually wear them. I really love lace-up canvas shoes in this transitional period as they are comfy to wear, can be bought in a ton of different colours, are light enough that feet don’t get overly hot but offer some protection from the weather. Another thing I am a huge fan of is wearing boots with summer dresses and bare legs though this is something that I end up doing when the rain is tipping down or it is particularly chilly.
I pack a small umbrella in my bag that then comes everywhere with me for those times when the rain appears from nowhere. I have a light mac that I wear over an outfit if the weather is set to be rainy much of the day or I pack a poncho if the day is set to be warm and wet.
How do you dress for the transition between seasons? I’d love to hear about your outfit choices in the comments!
