2) put a hat on it

many women think a hat doesn’t look good on them. if you’re not in the habit of wearing a hat it looks foreign when you pop one on. back in the day women wore hats every day. and every single one of them looked fantastic. but again, they were accustomed to wearing them and we were accustomed to seeing them. so let’s give hats another try. hats not only look stylish and elevate any outfit but they’re practical. they keep you warm in winter and block the sun in summer.

5) make a statement

trade your statement necklace for statement earrings. they’re easier to work with than necklaces. why? with a statement necklace, you have to consider the neckline and length of the necklace. not so with earrings.

this is a classic wardrobe staple you can wear year round. from blanket scarves to silk scarves the sky is the limit. when the weather is cool tie one around your neck or drape over your shoulders. during the warmer months tie one on your handbag or use one as a belt.

fall is the perfect time to add a third layer. different layers of fabrics, textures, and colors take your outfit to the next level. but don’t discount layers come summer. simply swap long sleeves and heavy materials for short sleeves and lightweight fabrics.

    I have great hats and I love wearing them. But then there’s hat hair. Do you just leave your hat on and never take it off? Advice!?

    Hello Beth,

    thank you for this article, i tend to get into a style slump in the summer. with the heat and humidity in central florida during the summer it’s hard to stay stylish and cool. i absolutely cannot wear layers during the hottest months of the summer, but i can wear statement earrings as you suggested, stylish sunglasses, hats to protect me from the sun, and tie a scarf on my purse. simple suggestions that make a big impact.

    i do have one question though, how do you keep your rolled up cuffs on shirts and coats/blazers in place? i feel like whenever i roll up sleeves on outfits that i end up fussing with them the entire time i’m wearing the outfit. any advice would be appreciated.

    i love reading your blog, and follow you on Pinterest and Instagram. please keep these type of informative articles coming, they really help me. thank you
