Hello, Darlings! Today’s topic is Transitioning Into Fall With Black And White. The last couple of weeks I have spent my time at the beach enjoying some of the benefits of fewer crowds and warm temperatures. I am back at home and the weather has been wet and humid. Usually this time of the year it is hot and dry. Either way, it is not fall-like weather with cooler days, but hoping to get a taste of it this weekend.
As we get into the fall months, I don’t feel like wearing my bold bright colors as much and want to create fall outfits but know that the “fall colors” do not look good on me. I am a Winter and the clear cooler colors are my best while fashion colors tend to be warm.
Transitioning Into Fall With Black And White
Too Hot For Fall Colors- Try Black And White Zebra Print
I love black and white outfits. The bold contrast gives me energy. For some people, this may be too much but you can use the same concept, just change out the colors. Zebra has been a print I have been experimenting with this year.
Think Black And White Stripes For Fall Transitional Look
As I am “playing with pattern” on my style discovery journey, I have gone back to a tried and true favorite of mine- black and white stripes. A very classic pattern that is popular, especially during those transitional times such as summer to fall or winter to spring. On my shopping list, this fall is to find a v-neck top in the black/white stripe. I like a white background as opposed to a black background for maximum contrast.
Black And White Transition Style With Print Cardigan
We are deep into the A/C season where it is hot and humid outside but the temperature inside is set to freezing. Lightweight cardigans are perfect for this time of year (really all year round in my area).
White Jeans/Pants After Labor Day- Go For It!
Use to be a steadfast rule about white shoes and pants after Labor Day. Here in the South, some of our hottest days are in September and the first week in October. It is hard to pull out those dark denim jeans when it is 95 degrees outside, so keep your whites and wear them.
A Workhorse In My Wardrobe- The Little Black Dress
For my climate, the Sleeveless Little Black Dress can take me from Spring till freezing weather sets in (late Dec-Jan). Pick one that is slimming and comfortable, and all you have to do is add a cardigan, jacket, or sweater to make it thru A/C season. Easy to dress up or down, the LBD is great for those days when humidity is high and the though of wearing pants just makes your skin crawl (chaffing my friends). For the best look, make sure you invest in comfortable shapewear.
More Fall Fashions To Come
I am expecting some new colors from Kettlewell Colour to come in the mail today. In the next couple of weeks, we are going to dive into the concept of style.
