This past week in the DC metro area, it was a little chilly for it to be the end of May. It seems that when the weather does the opposite of what it typically does, people tend to dress out of season. When I say out of season, I mean things like heavy coats in the summer, and sandals in the winter. When you do that, not only are you risking the chance of getting sick, but you do not look your best either. I have created some tips to help you dress for the proper season, and not tempt yourself to bring out your Uggs and North Face jackets every time the temperature drops to 60 degrees in the summer.
Winter fashion: boots (ankle, riding, fur, etc.), puffy down coats, pea coats, heavy sweaters, sweater dresses, corduroy materialclothing, wool and velvet fabric, leather fabrics, earmuffs, tights, pantyhose, gloves, scarves, berets, fur coats, etc.
Spring fashion: light jackets (trench coats, camo jackets, denim jackets, etc.), cardigans, flats, white clothes and accessories, loafers, canvas sneakers, ankle pants, capri pants, maxi dresses, sun hats, floppy hats, open toed shoes, etc.
Summer fashion: shorts, dresses, sandals, open toed shoes, tank tops, flats, canvas sneakers, and sunhats, floppy hats, ankle pants, white clothes and accessories, and yes, light jackets for those chilly nights.
Fall fashion: boots, scarves, berets, light sweaters, sweater dresses, cardigans, denim jackets, camo jackets, leather jackets, flats, tights, pantyhose, etc.
Keeping those examples of seasonal fashion in mind, here are some tips that will help you to stay in season with your wardrobe.
