Camel Coats for Transitional Weather

I’ve been on a massive search for a camel overcoat. Why may you ask? Well, partly because it’s the perfect transitional coat for fall. It looks great over business attire and then plays nicely off duty too. Dressing up jeans or even sweats just enough to look cohesive and intentional.

It’s a Classic

Also, a camel coat is a timeless classic. And, classics are where it’s at.  I’m working on my Fall 2020 trends list for you all, but it feels weird, to be honest. 2020 is NOT A NORMAL YEAR! So, making predictions about what is in style when life seems so precarious isn’t sitting right in my gut. Instead, I’m looking at what fashion trends I’m seeing and thinking about ways to adapt and create them from what many of us may already have in our closets. So, classics like a camel coat play an integral role.

Of course, I’ll still add shoppable links if you’re inspired or want to add a piece or two. But overall, the lens I’m using for Fall 2020 is:  what subtle changes can be made to existing pieces (either as combinations or by adding one item) to make them feel fresh and new.

What to Wear When it’s 30-65 Degrees…

What shoes do you wear when it’s October, 55 degrees and sunny? Sandals? Boots?
Transitional Fall Shoes.

Over and over this question comes up… WHAT SHOES AM I SUPPOSED TO WEAR WHEN the calendar says Fall and IT’S 40, OR 50 OR 60 DEGREES OUTSIDE? Like today? Tomorrow? Last week? Next week? When it’s not sandal weather, but it’s not time to break out the winter boots yet either. TRANSITIONAL SHOES, that’s the answer.

I hear you, the struggle is real! (BTW, the same challenge will happen in March, April and May, so bookmark this page:-) So this week we’re talkin’ transitional footwear and how to fill the shoe gap between sandals and boots.

Right now, September thru November, is what’s affectionately called shoe purgatory, but it doesn’t have to be hell (ha-ha, get what I did there?!?)

How to Fill The Shoe Gap in Your Wardrobe

There are a few transitional shoe styles that fill the shoe gap and easily transition between sandals and boots.

They all have one key thing in common, they show skin, like ankle skin or top of foot skin, BUT NOT TOE. And that, there, is precisely what makes them feel “right” when it’s warm-ish but fall-ish too.

So, for those of you with a closet full of sandals and boots, but nothing in-between, this one is for you! Oh yea, and know, these styles come at all price points – so I’ve tried to give you at least a few options for each.
