Fall is officially here to stay. The days are getting shorter, and the nights are turning colder. While fall is my favorite season, the variable weather this time of year makes getting dressed in the morning extremely challenging. If I try to dress for the coldest part of the day (morning), I am usually too hot by lunchtime and feel silly walking around campus in a heavy sweater/coat. If I try to dress for the warmest part of the day (mid-afternoon), I end up shivering at my desk in the morning while bitterly complaining about how cold my hands and feet are. After being caught out by the changing temperature a few too many times, I finally developed a system for layering that keeps me thermally comfortable throughout the day without sacrificing on style. I begin with a simple tee, add a thin sweater and/or long-sleeve button-down, throw on a puffer vest for some extra warmth, and finally top with a light jacket. This way I feel nice and toasty in the morning, and cool and comfortable in the afternoon.
What kind of fall weather are you having? How do you dress for big swings in temperature over the course of a day?
