Hey guys! I’m sitting here at Disney Spring Starbucks Reserve as I write this blog post. One thing I’m thankful for is the opportunity to travel the world and experience a variety of cultures and even fashion trends. Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of requests about how to wear fall trends in hot climates. Though certain places get that cool fall weather, there are places like Florida, California, Texas and many others that don’t really get too cold for fall or winter. If you are a fashionista though, that can be a bit discouraging due to the leather and layering trends that hit the runway each season.
The bright side to living in hotter climates is the ability to actually wear many of the pieces from the runway that can’t be worn in cold climates without a huge coat. I’m from Michigan, so I remember wearing lots of leather, pants and sweaters in the fall. When I moved to Orlando, I couldn’t really pull out my leather pants (at least without breaking into major heat flashes) until one lucky day in December when the temperature dropped to 50 degrees. That means I had to get creative and rock some other trends from the runway. Things like floral dresses with knee high boots, or burnt orange suede shorts and lots of fringe. I found these to be some fabulous fall trends that I could have never worn in those zero below climates. So it is true! You can rock the fall trends in hot climates, and you can do it with ease. I’m actually putting together a new video on how to transition from summer to fall in hot climates that you won’t want to miss. It’ll be up soon and it features this cute crop top and skirt from H&M, which is light and airy, but still gives a fall touch to my wardrobe.
Speaking of this floral and rich fall hue toned H&M look, I had a blast shooting it in NYC on my travels. One of my favorite things about the big apple are the brick houses. I’ve always wanted one, so being able to capture the beauty of the city like this, made it super exciting.
