Page 2 in the conversation "Fall/Spring similarities and differences" by Katerina
Katerina, I tend to wear a similar palette year round. I don't wear my woolly tweed blazers in the Spring, nor my woolly scarves, very black items, or heavy earth tones.
Spring can be colder than Autumn! So I do wear wool and cashmere - but in Spring colours.
For example, these items from my wardrobe are for Autumn & Winter ONLY - not Spring. It's a psychological thing more than anything:
Oh yes Angie, these items really FEEL autumn/winter rather than spring. Thank you for sharing.
BTW, Angie, do you wear your gold colour Chelsea boots in the autumn or are they for spring only? I would wear them all seasons (if weather allows) - but then I am not so good at seasonal...
Ah, you mean these? I wear them in the Spring & Autumn
Angie, yes, they are fabulous!
I feel drawn to very different color palettes in spring vs. fall--but I look very good in traditional fall colors, so I like wearing them. I look more washed out in lighter colors, which I associate with spring.
In spring, I like to wear pastels (pink, mint, lavender) grounded with a darker neutral. In fall, I gravitate toward gray, black, dark brown, toffee, burgundy, and mustard. Yum!
I wish I could wear the same pieces for fall and spring, since that would save some wardrobe space (and some money!). But I personally find that many colors that feel "right" in spring don't feel right in fall, and vice versa.
Anne, your 2 summers make so much sense! Why can’t you wear toppers with things that have 3/4 sleeves?
I hate the sensation of bunching around my elbows!
I do the same as you. Spring and Autumn here are similar temperature-wise (chilly/warmish) therefore there are clothes that I wear in both seasons. It's t-shirts worn with cardigans, light jackets, thin wool sweaters, cotton pants, closed shoes. I have a preference for light colors therefore I try to keep the outfits light-colored, but it is not always possible of course. I recently found a pair of white/silverish slipons that will be perfect for Autumn. I'm so happy! Light-colored Autumn shoes have been a HEWI for me for a looong time.
