Today we’re beginning a series about what to wear during the fall and winter when you live somewhere warm. We’ll publish more installments of Winter Style in the South throughout February!
Can you really embrace fall and winter styles if you live in warm places like Georgia or Louisiana?
If you love winter coats, layers and accessories, it can be a bummer to discover that it can be downright uncomfortable to wear “seasonably appropriate” cold weather clothes when it’s not unusual for the temperature to hit 70 degrees.
But there are also distinct advantages to dressing for winter in the South and other warm locales.
Most notably, your fall and winter wardrobe can be cute rather than practical when you rarely have to deal with cold-weather concerns like walking through snow or avoiding frostbite.
Today’s post was actually inspired by a lovely floral blazer that I first admired online. I was pleased to discover that it’s just as cute in person – and was part of this fantastic outfit on display at Nordstrom.
But I was surprised by how light (i.e., airy rather than warm and cozy) the fabric is given the jacket’s fall colors.
At first we thought might wait a few months to feature the jacket, but a few days later Amy and I talked about how this is actually a fantastic “fall” outfit for a professional woman living in a warm climate – an issue we’ve both faced regularly for many years.
And so began this new series!
The jacket’s “navy floral foulard” print is a fantastic feature – and easily lends itself to unexpected color pairings (royal blue pants paired with the jacket’s navy background); print mixing (a neutral striped peplum shirt paired with the jacket’s combination of stripes and florals) and fun metallic accessories (the skinny gold belt and crystal bib necklace – which is still available here).
Here’s another look at the Chelsea28 Easy Floral Crepe Jacket ($88 from Nordstrom).
Here’s a complete outfit featuring the navy floral print jacket and some of our other fall and winter favorites to enjoy in warmer climates: pops of color in a seasonally appropriate palette, metallic accents and warm neutral accessories.
