With the season changing from summer to fall, many of us are excited to finally wear fall fashion, which can be difficult due to the Tallahassee heat. Although it is warm and sunny year-round in Tallahassee, there are still ways to dress for fall.
One of the ways you can dress for fall is by including darker colors into your wardrobe. Dark orange, red, brown and black all fit the theme of fall and allow you to dress accordingly in the heat while looking festive for fall.
Recently, it has been cooler in the mornings and warmer in the day in Tallahassee. A way to dress for fall in Tallahassee is to wear light layers that are easy to take off if it gets warmer.
Pairing your outfit with a light jacket or matching cardigan is a good way to lightly layer without being too hot. You can also wear sheer tights or leggings under skirts or shorts for a layered fall look.
You can also dress for fall by wearing thinner sweaters and jackets that won’t be too hot, or thin long-sleeved tops. You can pair any of these items with your favorite summer top or bottoms to make a stylish look in the Tallahassee heat.
Students were also asked how they dress for fall in the Tallahassee weather.
“Because it’s hot out there’s not as much layering you can do,” Aushjua Walden said. “But you can still make it feel like fall by wearing nice colors like brown and orange. On the colder days, you can wear a flannel along with your outfit.”
Walden also shared how they layer in the weather.
“You can also wear a long-sleeved shirt under your clothes. A cool look I like to go for is a long-sleeved shirt with a short sleeve on top. You can even wear a long sleeve on top of a button-up for a more preppy look.”
Katriniece Joubert, a current sophomore, says she hasn’t really made any adjustments to how she dresses for the weather.
“The only difference is that in the mornings it’s cooler, so for my morning classes, I’ll wear jeans and sometimes a sweater. I switch back for my afternoon classes,” Joubert said.
Joubert also expressed excitement for the cold in the later months.
“I’m waiting for things to get much cooler though, I have been itching to wear my comfy sweatshirts. I would like to be able to wear them without sweating in them by noon.”
Dressing for the fall in the Tallahassee heat may seem like a difficult task, but there are many ways you can dress festive for the season despite the heat.
