Layers are ESSENTIAL to your outdoor fall attire. If it’s a little cold right from the get go, try long pants (they can be sweats, jeans, leggings… really anything you can move around in) and a short sleeve shirt or tank top. Then, I personally like to throw on a half-zip and THEN a jacket. That way, I have a few layers that I can remove should it start heating up. Also, I love vests, but if I am being practical I would leave those at home. You can tie a jacket around your waist, but vests don’t have that kind of versatility.
RAIN OR SHINE
I don’t know about anyone else, but shoes are the hardest decision when it comes to outdoor attire. I mean, tennis shoes are comfortable, but sometimes you really do need boots on to keep you from rolling an ankle or getting your feet soaked in mud. During the colder months, I generally lean towards boots like these more than tennis shoes for that reason, but I guess it’s really up to personal preference.
Ok, so this has nothing to do with attire. But I think it is necessary to add to the conversation. I think fall and winter are actually the most beautiful seasons. So, if you have a camera, bring it along. You never know when you’ll be struck by how awesome the world is and all of that cheesy stuff. Just don’t let taking pretty pictures be your primary goal.
