The fall can be one of the best times of the year. It’s back to school, the start of the holidays, and best of all, the weather starts to get cooler, finally. `However, the weather can be a bit all over the place. In the morning it might be cold. In the afternoon it might be hot. So, layering your outfits is essential to your daily comfort. Here are some tips to help you deal with the turbulent weather that often accompanies the fall.
1. Have Options on Hand
Making sure you have enough clothes that can be layered comfortably is important. There are a few things that can make layering so much easier. Here are some examples.
Have a few short and long sleeve basic tees at hand. The short sleeve can be a little more versatile because they won’t make you as hot as a long sleeve shirt. However, being able to stick a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve item when it’s chilly is also very helpful. Always have layering basic tees in black, white, tan, and other colors that you frequently wear. They can be layered under anything, and if you need a little extra coverage, they’ve got you covered!
It’s always good to have a few cardigans or sweaters to layer over the top of basic tees. Cardigans offer an open-front option. So, you can wear them over plain shirts, graphic tees, or even over dresses. They’re also great in casual or professional settings, making them one of our favorite things to have for layering. They also come in solid colors or patterns.
Closed Toe Shoes
You might still want to rock sandals if it’s a bit warm, but hear us out. The fall can bring with it wind, rain, and sometimes even snow. You don’t want to be caught with your tootsies out in bad weather. So, do yourself a favor and if you need to wear sandals, make sure you always have a good pair of closed-toed shoes stowed in your car or desk so you can change quickly if needed.
2. Don’t Rule out Dresses and Skirts
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t rock some dresses and skirts. If it’s cold, layer a pair of tights to keep your legs warmer, or opt for a maxi dress. If you are wearing a maxi dress, you can always put fleece-lined leggings underneath for more warmth, as well. Cardigans can also be put over dresses or tops paired with skirts for extra warmth for your arms and neck.
3. Always Keep an Extra Layer on Hand
If you want to wear an outfit that isn’t layered, just make sure you’re prepared if the weather changes. Stow an extra jacket, cardigan, tights, pair of shoes, or a long sleeve shirt in your car or desk in case it gets chilly. It’s the worst when the weather changes, suddenly, and you’re left uncomfortably cold.
