Can you believe that two days ago was the first day of fall? It’s so crazy that fall is here and it’s still unbearably warm. But the temperature occasionally drops with no warning at night and we must be prepared with ideas for a warm fall day outfit.
I really do love dressing up for fall. But when you expect it to be cool and it’s warm but you still want to pull off a fall fashion look what do you do? Here are some tips.
Carry a Layer
When fall starts out hot don’t be fooled! The temperature can always drop suddenly and you will be left shivering. Always carry a layer with you. A leather jacket or a denim jacket always works best. They are easy to carry and look fabulous!
Dress to Impress
Wearing a long sleeved or short sleeved dress made out of a lightweight material always looks great! Dresses are great for layering and you can stay cool or layer up and get warm. A dress with some plaid detail will go a long way in making your look fall appropriate. You can also pick some nice rich hues to keep the fall vibe going.
Wear Lace Ups
I love closed toe lace ups in fall. Not only are lace ups currently in vogue but they are a perfect balance between covering your feet and leaving just enough breathing room. Try finding some fall fabulous colors like I have and they will look stunning on your outfit!
Cross Body Bags
Wearing a bag cross body is really in. So pull out all your long strap bags and start incorporating them into your outfits this season. The best part about carrying a cross body is that it leaves your hands free to hold your layer!
Traditionally a smokey eye involves a lot of eye shadow. But when it’s a warm fall day the last thing you want is anything extra on your face, try a smokey eye with only kohl and an eyeliner. Put on a dark shade of kohl on your lower eye line and smudge. Then wear a water proof eyeliner on the top eyelid. Run over it with kohl and smudge again. There you have it, a smokey eye which would work great for fall without eyeshadow!
Fall is when we pull out the red wine. So why should we limit it to only drinking wine when we can start donning lovely wine inspired lipsticks. You can go in for a lighter shade in the day if you like but keep it nice and dark at night! This is such a simple thing to look very fall appropriate despite the warm temperatures!
I hope these tips will help you build your outfits for a warm fall day until the weather cools down and we can move to a true fall look. Until then, have fun improvising!
