1. Light-weight Trench
A classic trench screams cool temps, but they can be sweltering if you are carrying around pounds of material. This light trench is made of a light Nylon blend so it wears super light. Especially for areas like Southern California, this is crucial when it is a cool 60 degrees in the morning but later rises to near triple digits. A trench like this polishes any outfit, whether it is a skirt with heels or jeans with flats.
The above Burberry trench is a find I made earlier this year, you can read more about how I find it at such a great deal HERE.
2. Sweater Dresses
A sweater dress is another great weapon for battling heat in these later months. It allows for CRUCIAL breeze while still maintaining the appearance of warmth. As mentioned in my previous post (that you can read HERE) it is important to stick to light weight, natural materials (ie cotton, linen) to ensure you remain cool and that the material doesn't add any extra sweat (I am looking at you Polyester!)
The above Burberry sweater dress is on total repeat in my closet, especially for work as my office likes to maintain an ARCTIC TUNDRA at all times. It was a birthday gift from the hubs a few years back. But he got the idea (and link) from me, because I am a girl that know what she wants! Therefore, that would be how he purchased it off The Real Real for $100, including shipping and tax.
3. Bandana Scarves
This post is on a Burberry streak! (Because Burberry is everything lovely and classic in the world, that's why <3)
A small bandana sized scarf is perfect for getting the illusion of adding accessories for warmth without passing out from heat stroke. It's a cute detail that is great with t-shirts, dresses, button downs, what have you. This particular scarf was an eBay find for $25, and even came with the original box! Total score.
4. Camel Color Everything
Nothing screams Autumn like a rich camel! This warm brown color is reminiscent of falling leaves and apple cider and all things wonderfully fall. Whether it is a bag, your shoes, a dress, whatever, you will instantly looks ready for September-December with this color. *Currently on the hunt for a camel colored sweater dress, if you come across one please help a sister out!*
