Why sweater weather is better weather
Share This Article:
As the August bank holiday beckons and the thought of freshers can be glimpsed on the horizon, summer is coming to an end and the transition into autumn will soon begin. The era of pumpkin spiced lattes, falling leaves and crackling bonfires is rapidly approaching, and soon coats and sweaters will be the standard. Being a self-confessed autumn mega fan, I cannot wait for the return of the prettiest season and its accompanying autumnal fashion. After all, sweater weather is, most definitely, better weather. In terms of aesthetics, autumn and winter fashion is far superior to its scantily-clad, brightly-coloured summer compatriot. Soon, the shades of hot pink and electric blue will fade, shifting to simplistic neutrals and sophisticated darks. Blacks, navy blues and deep maroons will become the standard shades of the season. Shorts will lengthen into skinny jeans whilst flip-flops will morph into Chelsea boots. Vests will finally disappear altogether, being replaced by the far superior shirt. However, the most exciting return will be the reappearance of coats and jackets. Autumn fashion can elevate even those with a woeful fashion sense to a level of sophistication and trendiness they otherwise lack during the summer months.
