Florida Fall Fashion: How to Fake It ‘til You Make It

Conventionally, the thought of fall fashion conjures up visions of heavy jackets layered over long sleeves paired with corduroy pants, boots, hats and scarves… unless you live in Florida. With our year-round heat and humidity, we have about 48 hours of fall-like weather to work with. So, if you’re a style-minded fashionista who enjoys dressing on trend with the seasons and you live here in Tampa Bay, you simply must ‘fake it’ for fall. 

Here are a few of my tips for achieving a fall fashion look while still dressing appropriately for the warm weather: 

  • Dark Colors: The fall color palette tends to be more dramatic and red is very on trend this year. The floral prints from spring continue, but they get darker. 
  • Lightweight Layering: Use sheer shawls, lightweight jackets, cotton cardigans, and the like to achieve a layered look without overheating. 
  • Add Leggings: Pair your favorite short dress with leggings and booties and voila, instant fall ensemble. 
  • Animal Print: This is a classic fall trend. Go bold with a snakeskin print kimono or add accents like a handbag or a belt for just a touch. 
  • Leather Fringe: Whether it’s a tassle necklace or a crossbody bag, find ways to incorporate fringe into your look! 

It’s a fun challenge to find ways to dress for the season, but I always prioritize comfort. Looking fabulous is great, but it should make sense for your lifestyle—your Florida lifestyle!
