We’ve had quite a long cool and cloudy streak here in LA. I’m in the minority here; while the rest of the region seems to be longing for warm and sunny weather, I’m quite pleased to be able to wear my sweaters and big scarves a while longer. The truth is, I have a very hard time feeling stylish in warm weather. I don’t do dresses (well, I would but really don’t find anything in between skin-tight sheaths and smocked styles which could rightfully be mistaken for maternity wear), I can’t go braless (eliminating as options many of the cute tops I’ve seen recently) and find that most short skirts really aren’t my thing. I tend to fall back on t-shirt-and-capris or tunic-and-white-jeans when temperatures climb into the 80’s and above, and in general am just not at ease baring a lot of skin, especially at work. Thus, summer and autumn in LA are my least favorite sartorial seasons, and I’m secretly dreading the onset of warmer days as something to get through until next winter.
What about you? What seasons really let you express your style? How do you cope with hot summer days?
