This summer and transition into fall in Tennessee has most definitely had the mood of a raging hormonal teen. The weather has had no happy medium, making it difficult for some to find a consistency within their closet. Should you bundle up in rain boots and rain jackets or nearly bare it all trying to beat the heat? Lately, no one knows with the crazy weather. We had three straight weeks of no rain with temperatures above 100 degrees this summer, and then the next week was a full seven days of non-stop torrential downpours. When I use the term “moody”, I am definitely not exaggerating.
Layers should be an essential part of your wardrobe during this transition of seasons. The weather in the morning is usually different by the afternoon so you need to be ready when you start the walk back from class. The Fashionista that I spotted heading out of class had the ideal transition outfit. She was wearing black skinnies, which can be go-to bottoms for this cooler season without wearing the normal blue wash denim. She paired them with a neutral color tank lined with lace and layered a bright cardigan on top of it for those chilly Knoxville mornings. This cool and comfortable look would still be a winner without the cardigan, but that pop of color really makes the outfit.
You can find a range of styles of cardigans in many stores, especially during this time of year. They come in many different styles, fabrics, patterns or colors. They are usually inexpensive and can be worn all year round. I have no doubt that you can find one to match plenty in your closet. Patterned cardigans are really great for pulling an outfit together when the rest of the pieces are simple. It gives you the chance to mix and match plenty within your wardrobe.
This Navajo inspired cardigan by BB Dakota is a must-have for fall. It has deep colors that are perfect to match brown or black booties with leggings or jeans. Cardigans also look great paired with scarves. The options really are infinite when it comes to the cardigan realm. I believe any Fashionista can find a way to make it work.
