How to Rock Fall Fashion Trends in Warmer Climates

It's officially fall, but in some parts of the country, the weather may not reflect it. While you may be dreaming of wearing chunky sweaters and drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes, warmer temps may have you opting for T-shirts and iced coffees instead. Embrace the season and update your wardrobe to match fall fashion trends with these five looks that work well in warm weather.

Even if the weather is warm, you don't have to settle for wearing sundresses and flip-flops this season. These five fall fashion trends are ones you can embrace now, despite what the thermometer says.

Fall Fashion Trends For Warmer Temps

1. Try over-the-knee boots

Over-the-knee boots are the shoe of the season, but pairing them with pants might make you feel more suffocated than sexy when temperatures are warm. Instead, use your boots to elevate a summer dress, as Jules of Sincerely Jules did, or pair them with a skirt. When temperatures finally do get cooler, a pair of thick tights can keep you warm while you rock this fall footwear trend.

2. Indulge in loose knits

It might feel like sweater weather is still a few months away, but you can indulge in a comfy shirt by choosing a loose knit instead of a chunky or tighter-woven top. Loose-knit sweaters look cozy when thrown over a plain cami and worn with jeans and a pair of ankle booties, as seen on The Fancy Pants Report. You can also try tucking a loose knit top into an A-line skirt—pair the look with oxfords for a preppy touch.

3. Add leather touches

Leather is one of our go-to fall fashion trends, but it's not always breathable on warmer days. Instead of choosing full-leather pieces, go for outfits with leather features. A paneled pant or a sweater with leather accents can add fall flavor to your outfits without leaving you feeling too warm. We love this cardigan with a leather front on Rachel of Pink Peonies.

4. Accessorize with fringe

Fringe is one of the hottest fall trends of the season, and it belongs on your accessories. Fringe bags and booties add a touch of autumn edge to any outfit, including this floral blouse and denim skirt combo on Mary of Happily Grey. Look for fringe accessories in cognac, Merlot, or distressed black, and pair them with a basic tee and jeans to get the full effect.

5. Rock a metallic mani

Too hot to even think about boots or sweaters? Give yourself a fall-inspired manicure. Metallic hues are perfect for the season, especially ones using brassy or gold hues. Opt for an all-metallic manicure by painting an accent nail in a metallic jewel tone and then paint the rest of your nails with a gold or silver polish. Metallic accents, used on this look by The Nailasaurus, work well too. This is a sweat-free way to update your look for fall.
