The shift from the warm summer to the frigid winter can sometimes seem rather immediate — here in Philadelphia, we went from averaging 95 degrees to under 70 in nearly a week. While some might view the shoulder seasons as merely transitional, in reality, they are some of the best possible months for fashion out of the entire year. Heavy winter coats tend to obscure the subtleties of an outfit, and hot weather forces you to dress minimally. A temperature right in the middle allows you to wear a few layers while still maintaining some degree of control over your outfit.
The first few weeks of autumn will seem nearly indistinguishable from summer; lots of shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. As time passes, you'll finally be able to wear pants comfortably, and even toss on a light layer. By October, you should be able to wear two or more layers, and when winter rolls around, you'll be decked out in a full coat. There is truly a lot of variety in fall, since you get to witness the swing from one extreme to the other. Even individual weeks can experience dramatic temperature shifts, so your wardrobe will have to accommodate two seasons at once for a short while.
No matter how you dress, autumn is a season to be celebrated. Take advantage of the cool weather and opportunities for experimentation, and you'll have a great time! A huge shout out and thank you to the well-dressed gents in the album for constantly inspiring us.
