deepsouthequestrian said: Hello Dean, I wondered if you had any advice for the young professional,trying to transition into fall with her wardrobe, in the Deep South? I'm originally from NW Arkansas and I've noticed, after moving to Mississippi, that my wardrobe is not "transitional" enough for the climate down here. For example, my work outfits are either very summer like in color/style or my fall work clothes are too warm for the weather being 85-90 till November. Thanks very much for your time, Annie
Hey Annie, thanks for writing in. When it comes to fall in the deep South, you really have to use your best judgement. When the temperatures are in the 80/90s, it doesn’t make too much sense to break out the heavier pants/sweaters as you’ll be sweating before you leave the house.
If I were you, I would suggest incorporating more fall colors to your wardrobe in order to help make the transition a little easier. Whether it be orange dresses or patterned green skirt, opt for fall colors on clothing that can still be worn during the warmer months.
Thanks! Good advice.
