You’ve heard of Fall fashion collections, but did you know about “Pre-Fall”?
Designers recently debuted their 2014 Pre-Fall collections, which are often meant to be in-between season lines featuring fewer pieces than full Fall and Spring collections. These “Pre-Fall” lines are perfect for those living in regions that begin to transition into cooler weather early, but not exactly ideal for those living in, say, the South – where it’s still in the 70s going into November.
While that usually means these chic Pre-Fall styles are just plain unwearable until the holidays, there are plenty of ways to incorporate the trends of the Pre-Fall pseudo-season while still wearing warm weather-appropriate outfits. This dark shade of green was seen up and down Pre-Fall runways, but you can easily wear it now – and without sweating like an Eskimo in Mexico. It’s as simple as taking pieces like a loose tank top, swingy cotton skirt, chic pair of sandals, or even just a little accessory in this forest green hue, and incorporating them into your already existing summer wardrobe!
