It still feels like summer but we know the chilly autumn months are on their way. It can be hard to find the perfect mix of stylish, comfortable, and sun coverage. When it’s hot, you don’t want to be weighed down with heavy materials, but when it’s suddenly cool, you want to be prepared too. Redheads also do not want skin exposed because it can lead to burning.

Here is some outfit inspo for this in-between time while we wait for Redhead Season to arrive: 

Oversized Button Down

The oversized button-down has become a staple in current fashion, and it’s great sun protection for your arms and back. Opt for lightweight material in a lighter color and throw it on over shorts and a tank for a casual but stylish look. Top it all off with a belt, fun jewelry, and matching shoes. 

How to get the look:

Madewell Courier Stripe Button Back Shirt, $72

 

A Long Flowy Skirt

Keep your legs protected from the sun with a long, lightweight skirt. Pair it with your favorite t-shirt and some chunky sneakers for a casual look, or add some strappy heels and a lightweight top for a more put-together feel. 

Feeling a little chilly? Add a jean jacket and a scarf to the mix.
