While summer has officially ended for most people, it's just starting to kick into high gear for those of us in San Francisco. These record temps (hello 90 degrees in the city today!!!) make it hard to want to even think about cashmere, sweaters and fall jackets.
Living in a climate where it is basically the same weather year round can seasonal dressing challenging. Because let's face it, living in San Francisco means that you can get away with wearing the same thing 12 months of the year.
Here's a tip we share with our clients for creating seasonal wardrobes when you live somewhere that really doesn't have definitive seasons. Go into your closet and pull out your spring/summer pastels, florals, bright summer items, light dresses, and cropped pants. Move them to the back of your closet where you won't look at them everyday. Then take all of your fall/winter colors, deep jewel tones, mustards, navy blues, maroons, leather coats, corduroy... ok you get the picture... and put them in the front of your closet.
There will some overlap in clothing that can be worn in spring/summer and fall/winter. That's ok, you pick what category you want to place it in. What you are doing is creating two distinct wardrobes so that when Spring rolls around again, you can swap out your clothes and actually feel like you have an entire untouched wardrobe to play with.
And for those of you who have 4 seasons a year, this article by Lucky Shops gives great advice on how to transition your wardrobe for fall.
