Adjusting For Autumn


What do you do when the weather starts to change and you have a closet full of short sleeves? Fall is a tricky time of year for style, not quite cold enough for a heavy coat but definitely too chilly for shorts. Don’t worry! With a few adjustments you can wear your summer wardrobe right through the first snowfalls.

1. Wear turtlenecks under dresses. We weren’t sure about this combination when we first heard about it, but Fashion Week really won us over. Even ultra-trendy designers like Tory Burch are using solid-colour turtlenecks to carry their favourite dresses into cooler weather. This works best when you use tight sweaters with full necks, not mock turtlenecks. Pair them with deep V-neck dresses to get the most style mileage.

2. Add a sweater. Don’t pack those beautiful cold-shoulder summer looks away! Sweaters are the perfect amount of coverage for Fall. Buy a few in different fabrics and colours to fit your entire wardrobe. If you get cold easily, choose a sweater with a wide floppy neck that can be pulled up against the wind.

3. Tights are your friend. Shorts and tights are unexpectedly chic when done right. The trick with tights is balance. If you have a busy top, wear simpler tights (and vice versa). For a flawless Fall look, try a bright or patterned pair of tights with chunky socks and boots.
