We Houstonians love flip flop weather and enjoy it almost year round, but when the temperatures dip below 70 in September, we get excited about the possibility of sweater weather. The challenge with fall dressing here is that it might be chilly in the morning, but it will probably warm up by noon, leaving you sweaty and uncomfortable in heavy fall clothing. The solution is layers – long shirts and tunic dresses you can wear over leggings or tights, with boots or flats. Throw on a jacket, scarf, or cardigan on a truly cold day; you can always take it off if you get warm.
Keeping in mind the importance of layers, I created a list of fall wardrobe staples that every woman should have in her closet.
I live in leggings and tunics in the fall, and I have lots of colored and patterned leggings and tunics in my closet. It’s such an easy way to dress – put on flats or boots, accessorize with some cute jewelry, and you’re out the door, looking effortlessly chic! This fall, I want to add a button-down shirt I can wear with jeans or leggings, a neutral striped shirt, and a few solid color tops to my wardrobe. I’m also looking for a lightweight jacket or cardigan I can wear when it gets a little chillier.
What are your fall wardrobe staples, stylish readers? Do you have a go-to outfit for chilly days?
