7 Ways to Dress for Fall When You Live Somewhere Warm

While the rest of the land is covered in layers of clothing (and snow), do you find yourself still donning flip-flops and t-shirts, never once afraid of a chill? Fall and winter fashion is not probably one of the things you have to worry about, but sometimes you just can’t help but wish you had some snow days to wear that cute sweater or hat you have been eyeing.

Here are some outfits or ideas that I have put together to give you that winter feel without overheating you. You can still dress for the fall even if you live somewhere warm.

1 Sleeveless coats

These coats might not be that fun in the fall or winter when you live in a cooler climate, but for those in a warmer location, this is the perfect opportunity to dress up in a svelte silhouette without melting.

You can dress up a sleeveless coat quite easily, too. For example, on a cooler day, you might wear a thicker sleeveless turtleneck or opt for a casual t-shirt when days are warm. Long coats also look gorgeous when matched with a long leg and booties. Let those coat-tails fly!

2 Suede skirts

Though suede is considered a cornerstone fabric in fall, wearing things like shirts, jackets, and vests made out of suede can be dangerous in warmer climates. That is why suede skirts are a chic piece of clothing that makes rocking this trend simple wherever you are. Pair a mini or midi suede skirt with some strappy heels and a simple blouse or thin knit sleeveless vest.

3 Rich fall colors

One of the best ways to rock fall fashion regardless of where you live is to embrace the autumnal color palette. Fall tones are always warm and rich. Burgundy, hunter green, oranges, and chocolate brown are the quintessential colors, but you can choose navy and similar colors too. Even if you are wearing a burgundy tank top with a green skirt, you are still going to slay your autumn.

Additionally, mixing dark and light textures and hues really create that autumnal look. For example, you can take a gorgeous pair of burgundy tights and pair that with a green utility jacket, sleeveless coat, and a white dress. Or, you can take a plaid green shirt and pair that with rich browns and oranges, preferably as a shoe or purse.

4 Plaid patterns

To me, plaid is one of those patterns that just shouts “pumpkin spiced lattes,” “leaf piles,” and “fall.” I mean, you will not find many autumn decorations that forego plaid. That is why a couple of plaid pieces for your wardrobe will go a long way to help you welcome in the autumnal spirit.

Opt for red, green, purple, and orange patterns. You can wear a plaid shirt over a comfy tee or camisole, depending on the weather. Or, you can tie that plaid shirt around your waist and don some olive green shorts and ankle boots. Plaid scarves are an easy way to accessorize an outfit, too.

5 Sleeveless turtlenecks

When you find yourself making eyes at that knit sweater in Target but also fretting the sunny days still ahead, there is a way to strike a happy balance. Chunky knit sweaters are doable when you go sleeveless.

Turtlenecks look especially chic without sleeves. Choose a darker color or fabrics that are not see-through so you do not have to worry about layering beneath them. The best part is that these sweaters can be dressed up or down. Simply pair with denim on the weekends or with a pencil skirt and heels for the office.

6 Ankle boots

Boots are indeed a fall staple, but you might not be able to tolerate the fleece-lined goodness like your sisters who live in colder climates. That is why you should grab some ankle boots or rain boots. These are usually lighter than cold weather counterparts and look great with just about anything in your wardrobe.

You can pair your ankle or rain boots with other items that won’t make you overheat, like your suede skirt or a chiffon top. Another way to add “fall” to your boots is to pair it with a vest, either chunky or not!

7 Oversized sweaters and cardigans

I do not know about you, but I am in love with those chunky, oversized cardigans that remind me of my grandmother’s afghan blanket. They are just so cozy. Unfortunately, when the environment does not get below 75 degrees, those oversized cardigans can make you uncomfortable.

So, you can try pairing those luxurious sweaters and cardigans with something a bit more summery, like a tea-length dress, midi skirts, loose blouses, and a light chiffon scarf. Another way that you can scream “autumn!” without overdoing the layers is to pair that oversized cardigan with some black or gray cotton leggings and rain boots. Aw, yas.
