How To Wear Fall Trends When It's 80 Degrees Out

Miamians have a tendency to throw on a thigh-high boot and leather coat at the first sign of weather south of 80 degrees. But, this eagerness to prematurely indulge in cool-weather fashion leads to a number of sweaty fashion faux pas that I'd rather not get into. Instead, I've come up with a few easy tips to dip into the fun fall styles without becoming a puddle.

Layer Lightly — Top your lightweight, asymmetrical tops with lightweight blazers and an even lighter scarf. This will give you the visually interesting look of layers without the bulk.
Cut It Out — Lately, boots are sporting tons of interesting cut-outs. Finding a pair of cut-out boots provide extra ventilation.
Focus On The Fabrics — If you’re a leather lover, purchase weather-appropriate items with leather elements (like lapels, sleeves, or pockets) instead of a full leather look.
See, we can transition into fall — we’re just lucky enough to transition out of it and into summer whenever we feel like it!
