Fall is quickly approaching. That means (finally) cooler weather, fall leaves, and the hustle of back-to-school. Many of us wish we could extend the warmer weather, and take carefree summer days and attitudes with us. We can’t, unfortunately, change the weather, but we CAN improve our moods by bringing our summer favorites into the fall!
The cooler weather makes it necessary to take out fall essentials like sweaters and jackets. Why not try pairing an oversized neutral colored sweater with your favorite pair of summer shorts. Add see-through tights, boots, and viola! This is a perfect way to let your legs still see the sunlight, without feeling frozen. If you have a dark leather jacket, pair it with a white t-shirt, jeans and a bright, summery, silk scarf. Any orange or pink will draw attention in an otherwise dark outfit.
Another great way to summer-ize your fall outfit is to bring in pastels. Find your favorite black jeans from the back of your closet, beige or white shirts, and add either a lavender colored-purse, or a pale-rose colored ring. The subtle colors will not overpower your other clothes, but they will add a pleasant and peaceful point of focus.
When working in a typical office setting, how often does your mind wander off to that great vacation where you spent a week on the beach sunbathing? Bring a little bit of the beach and sun with you and add a straw tote to carry all your not-so-relaxing reading material.
It doesn’t matter if you bring in some color subtly or screaming, the end result will be the same. People’s heads will take a second glance at the different colors entering Black, Brown and Orange’s domain.
