Fall is my favorite season. For clothes. For weather. And – obviously – for PSLs.

In my mind, sweater weather is the best weather. So it kills me a little bit inside to not be able to wear all of the sweaters with all of the corduroy pants on a daily basis yet.

Even though tis the season for fall clothes (as all of the magazines and stores keep trying to tell us), it’s definitely not sweater weather yet here in Texas. To help you adapt to the summer-in-October temperatures, you can easily add fall elements to your outfits… even though it’s still bare-arm weather. So here are my tips for how to dress for fall when it is hot outside (or, in Dallas’s case, unbearably and unbelievably hot outside):

How to Dress for Fall When it is Hot Outside

Accessorize wisely: a brown leather bag or some burgundy suede heels can help you complete your warm weather fall outfits. One of my favorite tricks is to incorporate open-toe booties into my early fall looks. Booties are a fall classic, while the open toe keeps them breathable, despite the scorching temps outside.

Embrace the fall colors: incorporate fall colors whenever possible. Swap out the summery yellows for the more autumnal shades of wine, navy, and olive.

Go mad for plaid: this one’s kind of expanding on the other two. Incorporate plaids and autumnal floral prints to bring your look into fall. I really like this plaid dress (on sale!), this floral dress (also on sale!), and this floral top.
