Hemlines ... long ... short? With the weather changing is it too cold to go short? These are the questions running through my head as I clear my summer clothes out of my closet, and usher in my fall/winter wardrobe. Certain pieces, such as short skirts, have me pondering if they can transition from summer to fall. After thinking about it for awhile I decided that they most definitely can find a place in my fall wardrobe.
The key is making sure that a short skirt doesn't come across to lightweight for the weather. It needs a bit of substance to make it work for fall. For starters I think hair and makeup should be elegant and simple so it doesn't read too schoolgirl or kiddish. I love a turtleneck paired with a short skirt because it adds much needed coverage when you are showing off so much leg. And for days when you are feeling a little more modest just add some tights or tall boots for added warmth and style.
