September is always a bittersweet time, in my opinion. It is full of transitions and contradictions. For instance, on some level, you’re sad summer is coming to an end. But on another level, you’re happy to see the heat and the unstructured nature of summer fade away. Adios!
Being in transition or in limbo can be difficult for some people. It feels unsettling and can create an underlying anxiety. But . . . before we know it, we shift into a new routine and are in the swing of everything this new season has to offer. My advice is to take advantage of each day as it comes and enjoy the rhythm of this month.
As far as your PERSONAL STYLE goes for this month . . .
When it comes to transitioning between seasons, the best approach is to wear layers. Begin using the key pieces from your summer wardrobe as the base. Then, add items from the 2 seasons flanking summer to give yourself a little bit of warmth for when you need it.
The beauty of layering is the flexibility you have when the weather changes (or in my case, when my internal temp changes). Transitional dressing is actually my favorite because the cooler weather allows for more creativity – more layers and a greater opportunity to mix textures and silhouettes. Go ahead and get creative this season with your layers!!!
Here are a few outfit combinations to help you get started.
