The 100-degree heat of summer will soon be behind us. As fall quickly approaches, short shorts and sundresses will fade out of style and over-the-knee boots and infinity scarves will be appropriate once more. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to escape the blistering heat and transition to my skinny jeans and cozy sweaters. For those of you who might not be ready to let summer go, just remember, you’ll get to switch up your style and start fresh!

While the temperature cools down and the leaves start to change colors, there are a few dreadful fashion errors to take note of when you are looking through your wardrobe this fall.  Summer Patterns Sorry girls, but your favorite flower patterns cannot come with you once fall is in full swing. All the floral sundresses, blouses, and skirts must be put away.

I know it’s hard for some of us to leave summer behind, but there comes a time when we must part ways with the beach and pool. Don’t worry; you’ll always have next year. For now, just pack away the summer patterns and reach for those plaid flannels!

Forgetting to Layer
In case you all forgot, we do live in Northern California. While the chilly times of the day do come in the early morning and evening, the sun is still out for the majority of the day during the fall. It can still get pretty warm, so be sure to dress in layers.

There are always those certain basics we keep in our closets that come in handy for layering. Whether it’s a plain t-shirt or light cardigan, it’s always smart to go back to the basics. Also, when you leave the house don’t forget a jacket. Avoiding leather could be the worst crime you commit this fall.

Overly Tight Clothes
Come on everyone, there’s no longer a need for tight shorts and snug tanks once this next season hits. Overly tight clothes may be appropriate when it’s sweltering outside or you’re trying to go for a summer slimming look, but now it’s no longer realistic or in style. Put on some boyfriend jeans and oversized sweaters and just be comfortable.  

Not Wearing Color
No, it’s not summer anymore, but that doesn’t mean we have to be guilty of making fall a dreary time. Too much black and brown can be boring, so don’t forget to add a little color. Also, remember to change the colors of your makeup and nail polish. We can’t all be stuck in summer forever, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fall fun!
