For much of the Northern Hemisphere, the weather is still decidedly summer. But (I know I’ve said this before!), if you have a specific desire for your cool weather wardrobe, this is the time to look!
I think that this is especially true this year, because so many retailers are keeping inventories very small; I’ve been interested in items that – literally a day or 2 after my first look – will be sold out.
So let’s dream about sweater weather!
This first ensemble has my name written ALL OVER IT… sigh…
For those among us who are eager to cuddle up in something warmly brown and gold, this might do the trick:
If you live in jeans, you can still look amazing!
Some of us try to avoid things that are TOO dark in the colder weather – imagine these outfits in your closet, waiting for a gloomy day…
On the other hand, some of us thrive in bright and bold! Why not get some socks to match your new sweater?
I’m particularly smitten with the soft beauty of this next group – especially the audacity of blue-ish, metallic shoes!
Some of us start wearing gloves the minute the temperature drops below 50; that’s a good reason to have a few pairs!
Navy and red might make you think of a plaid skirt – I wouldn’t do that to you! But it’s a classic color combination for a reason…
I’ve already got my new sweater for this year – a black and white Fair Isle that I found on sale! It’s very me…
What color is very you? Please note that this sweater comes in even more colors than I’ve shown; 24, I believe…
p.s. EIGHT years ago, our travel capsule wardrobe was in navy, tan and coral. It remains timelessly appropriate!
