Ladies, some news: the "-ber" months are finally upon us, which means it's time to tweak our wardrobes for cold weather fashion!
While it's only been a few days into September, there's already a slight crispness to the atmosphere. The weather might not be as cool as it is in other hemispheres, but for us Filipinas, a windy day is reason enough to break out the boots and scarves. We might not get to enjoy the cool autumn air or the cold bite of winter, but we still pride ourselves in keeping up with the fall trends that fashionistas in colder climates get to sport.
From spring and summer's bright colors like pink and orange, clothes this season are now veering towards darker, richer colors like burgundy, plum, and forest green. Update your closet by taking a few floral dresses out of rotation and replacing them with warm, comfortable knit sweaters and dark-washed jeans.
The key to fall dressing in our weather is to play with color, texture, and mix-and-matching. Instead of a head-to-toe fall look, opt to forego, say, the jacket, and instead keep it simple and fall-ready with a turtleneck sweater, jeans, and booties.
One go-to shop for fall and winter apparel is Uniqlo. The global brand is known for simple yet stylish pieces that are of high quality and are highly functional. Just recently, Uniqlo came out with their fall/winter collection for 2012. The line has all the essentials: sweaters, bottoms, and outerwear.
