Styling for Late Summer, Early Fall

How To Dress For The "In Between" Seasons

If you're like me, you may find it challenging to figure out how to dress when it's that "in between" the seasons time. It's not officially Fall, and yet it's pretty late in the Summer. It's still too warm to don heavy sweaters and yet you want to give a nod to the fact that it's September. What's a wannabe fashionista to do?

Luckily, as I was shopping my closet today, I remembered I had this short sleeved sweater in a lovely Fall orange color. I love the sleeve length on this sweater. It's long enough to give some warmth without being too warm. The only negative with this sweater is its length. Kind of wish it was a little longer over the hips and derriere. I believe I bought it at Stein Mart, but it's been awhile so I can't be sure.

What I am sure about is how much I love the pairing of this sweater with the mustard color scarf. Love this combination of just says Fall! Found this scarf at Walgreen's. Two for $5 need to check out their selection of scarves!!

This is a good example of how to wear a color if it isn't a "typical" color choice for your skin tones. I don't typically choose to wear yellows around my face as this color can make my fair skin look "washed out."  However, wearing a black sleeveless top as a base and adding the gorgeous pop of orange with the sweater balances out the mustard yellow of the scarf next to my face. It's a winning combination in my opinion!

How about you? How do you dress for the in between seasons? Do you have a favorite color combination you love to wear? Hope you'll take a moment to share. 

Until Next Time,

This is a great topic and something we all face. I love that sweater, length and all. It looks terrific and is a great color. I try to find things in the closet that are in fall colors or jewel tones. I put my summer skirts in storage and depend more on navy, black and gray, or patterns that mirror the fall colors. Your outfit is a perfect example. It can be tough this time of year with fluctuating temperatures, and days still in the 80's. I like posts like this one that show how fall is done!

Hi Debbie, yes it is a challenge in the South here too. It is getting a bit cooler, but it seems we need to work with colors to express Fall. Love the mix of orange and mustard here with the black palette. These are some of my facorite fall shades! Ill be shopping my closet for the next month as I have been buying a few pairs of shoes lately :-)
