My wreath is on the door, my faux fall leaves are wrapped around my topiaries, and I am ready to pick up my pumpkins…just one small problem, it is 100 degrees! California is having a heatwave and it is hard to think about fall decorating when it still feels like summer! Not to mention how to dress for work and still look professional. Let’s chat about how to dress for fall when it still feels like summer!
First, go sleeveless!
This is a great way to stay cool and still look professional. Just ask our first lady Michelle Obama, she is the queen of fashionable, sophisticated, sleeveless shirts and dresses. Stunning!
If you work in an office that gets cold or requires you to wear a jacket. Choose a light jacket or cardigan in a fun fall color! I love this golden bell sleeve jacket from Ann Taylor Loft. It goes with so many outfits. You can dress it up or down!
Second, wear fall colors in cool fabrics!
Golden browns, burgundy, orange, dark blues and greens are great colors for fall. I like to mix different colors that are in the same tone and have fun with gold accents in my jewelry. I even like to change my nail color to match the season. I was in an “ink blue” mood this week!
Finally, a great pair of brown or neutral tone shoes will go with everything! I like the peep toe pump. It’s like an “almost sandal” that you can wear year round.
I hope these tips will help you stay cool and still be in the fall spirit! At the end of the day, just be comfortable and have fun mixing your summer favorites with a few fall picks!
Stay busy being fabulous,
