I’m trying to stick to my rule of not discussing fall fashion until it’s actually, like, fall. And by fall, I mean leaves turning pretty colors and I can wear pretty sweaters without jackets. However, at least here in southern WV, there hasn’t been an honest-to-goodness fall. I mean, there’s like two weeks of pretty weather around the middle of October (and in time for Bridge Day at the New River Gorge!), but last year I swear it was in the 80s through November. When I would go shopping, there are all these beautiful sweaters and corduroy pants, and it’s just too hot to wear them.
It’s really confusing, and I’m not sure how to discuss fall fashion if it’s going to be 90 degrees. Or like this past spring, where it rained for over two months without letup.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
-What pieces to keep out when packing up your summer wardrobe
-What pieces to pick up that won’t be too hot, yet will keep you warm (yes, this sounds weird, but in my head it makes sense)
-Accessories are key
-Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
I am planning to do a back to school week next week. I’ll be covering back to school outfits from a variety of stores such as J. Crew, Target, Old Navy, and Kohl’s. I’m also going to include an outfit for a study date or a party, because you can’t wear jeans all the time.
I’ll figure something out. Meanwhile, if you have any questions about late summer/fall clothing/accessories/style/etc., ask me in the comments or email me at wvfashionologist [at] gmail.com.
