How to dress for Fall when it’s still hot out

It’s the time of year when PSL’s are back, football season has started, and we’re all ready for the temperature to cool down so we can dress in cozy Fall fashion. If you’re in a city like me, it’s still too hot and humid out to think about Fall style, but today I’m showing you simple ways to transition your wardrobe into Fall.

Fall inspired prints

Leopard can be worn year round, but my favorite time of year to really play up the print is Fall. I love mixing it in with patterns like dark stripes, plaid, buffalo check, and fall inspired florals.

Change up your handbag

In the summer I carry fun colored clutches and straw totes. Switching to richer tones and heavier textures (think leather and suede) will instantly give you Fall vibes while keeping you cool. This mini leather cross body bag was featured in my recent Amazon haul and is only $36.

Pick a new manicure color

My go to shade is light baby pink, but in the Fall and Winter I love to wear light grays and nudes. I’ve asked y’all on IG stories about your favorite at home manicure and I’ll be trying DIY gel and SNS over the next month. I hate spending my money and time at the nail salon, and I will let you know how it goes!

Switch to Fall toned lipsticks

I love wearing darker roses, berry, nudes, and mauve shades on my lips during Fall. I also tend to switch to matte textures over glossy finishes. Some of my favorite Fall lip colors include: Mac Syrup, Mac Velvet Teddy, Bobby Brown Blondie Pink, Mac Whirl lip liner, and Bare Minerals Matte liquid lip in Slay.

During this time of year I like to keep myself cooler by picking to wear longer or heavier options on my legs or arms.  I have a few different options of how I do that below.

Style skirts and dresses

I’ve styled a denim skirt for Fall earlier on the blog and plan to wear it throughout Fall until the weather is jean friendly. Dresses are another great option to layer under light layers like cardigans and vests. When it does get cooler, you can keep wearing your dresses by pairing them with a taller boot.

Don’t put away your shorts just yet

Keep your shorts out and style them with a lightweight sweater or a basic tee (now 2/$14) with a cute Fall hat. This sweater is lightweight and soft and I tied it up with my simple hair tie hack.

Go sleeveless

You can add layers like a olive vest ($22) but keep cool by going sleeveless. There is also the sweater tank option, which is great for wearing now but also later layered under cardigans and jackets as them temps cool down.

Switch your footwear

Opting for closed toed shoes like mules and pointed flats will instantly elevate your look from Summer to Fall. I’ve patiently waited for the perfect leopard flat, and I loved this cheetah mule version. It’s a little more neutral on your foot than the typical leopard flat. I found this dupe on sale for $19!

Add a touch of olive or muted neutral tones

Switching your color tones to earthly neutrals will make you feel ready for a PSL! Tones like burnt orange, olive, and camel always makes me ready for Fall.

Try silk scarves or bandanas

If it’s too hot for a Fall scarf, try styling a silk scarf or bandana instead! Tie it in your hair, around your neck, or around your handbag .

Lately on Instagram @strawberrychicxo

  • Well I actually had a well thought out caption written here but Instagram decided it didn’t want to post it for some reason. So instead of wasting another 30 minutes writing it back out and researching hashtags (really, this is what my life has come to these days to try and stay relevant here on IG) you get to see my never before seen feisty side 🤣. In short - this is the dress from my wedding guest dress guide restyled a bit more casually for Fall.

  • Another favorite from yesterday’s Target try on haul. This top is a  m u s t  h a v e  for Fall. It’s flowy but still flattering and I love the extra length in the back! Swipe up in my stories to watch the @target try on haul and you can also view the outfits on my blog. 
Double tap if you love a good trip to Target!

  • I found so many cute things at Target and I’m sharing a try on haul on my blog and YouTube 💕 What do y’all think of this mustard yellow hue? Last year I would have stayed clear of it but ever since Amal wore it to the royal wedding I am here for it!

  • Only a few more summer looks to share before we welcome Fall. I’ve had a productive Saturday cleaning the house and made time for a Target run (always!). I’ll be trying the at home SNS manicure when I get home and will be sharing the results on IG stories. I’m slightly terrified what I’m getting myself into 😂.
