This first outfit could be for a sunny windy day. You could add a casual jacket or blazer to it as well.
I associate plaid with fall, and I love the combination of covered up on top and exposing some skin with shorts...if it gets too hot you can always roll up those sleeves.
This look is for an evening out when the temperature lowers a bit (it really does sometimes). You can always wear a thin cotton short or tank top beneath the cardigan so you can take this off at your convenience.
I love to incorporate scarves in most outfits cause they can easily work as a cover up if it gets a little chilly that you would expect, plus I think scarves give such life to an outfit...its the perfect accessory for fall
Blazers and jackets are a must this season. it gives some elegance and formality to an outfit plus you can take them off accordingly. I also like the use of black pantyhose which can protect from chilly wind
Cardigans, ponchos, blazers, jackets, scarves, leggings, faux fur, boots and lots of layers is what I am looking forward to be using as my fall uniform here in this weird unpredictable weather at the south...what are your falls must haves??
