STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Weathering the Weather

Style Advice of the Week

Weather changes in Florida come mostly in the form of short-lived thunderstorms that sweep through town during the afternoon. As for the mercury on the thermometer, any Floridian will attest that it remains above the 70 degree mark for the majority of the year. Seasons? It seems we’ve traded changing leaves for swarms of lovebugs twice a year. So whenever a cold front does pass through, Fashionistas jump at the rare chance to break out their fall best for a couple days.

Despite any Fashionista’s affinity for piling on layers, it takes a very special skill set to weather a cold day in Florida. You may wake up to a chilly morning in the 40s and don your favorite coat, sweater and boots, only to have your entire outfit rendered useless once the afternoon rolls around with temperatures once again in the 70s.

This Fashionista has what it takes to outlast Florida’s tricky weather. She proves her floral romper is more than a warm weather piece by accessorizing it to perfection for a cool November day. She wraps a striking cobalt blue scarf around her neck and covers up her legs with semi-sheer black tights — just the right amount to keep her warm in the morning, yet light enough for the rising afternoon temperatures. Cat eye sunglasses with angular arms, owl earrings and lipstick to match her manicure place the finishing personal touches on her look.

Next time there’s a chill in the air, take a few tips from this Fashionista. A fall appropriate knit scarf from Mikkat Market and a pair of basic black tights will reinvent a summer staple like Urban Outfitters Crepe Open-Back Romper.
