This is Style in the South, a series in which our Southern-based editor, Allyson Payer, shares her insight into the trends and shopping habits that Southern girls follow (and don't follow). She'll also share her personal experience with relearning how to dress in the South after more than a decade away. Whether you live in the South, are visiting, or are just curious, she's here to offer you her Who What Wear perspective about all things Southern girl.
It's not uncommon for people to think that the South is devoid of seasons. To the contrary, especially in North Carolina where I live, the seasons are quite distinct. Fall, in particular, can be long and unpredictable weather-wise. Although it's still in the 90s now (and likely to stay that way for the next month), I'm working on building my wardrobe for the coming month's inevitable temperature changes. In case you want to join me, scroll on to shop everything I'm buying for fall this year, from outerwear to footwear.
The perfect everyday bag, found.
I'm picturing this with a chunky cardigan and ankle boots.
Ideal for layering under the aforementioned jumpsuit.
Everyone will be wearing leopard-print pants this fall, including me.
I love how low-key these Western boots are.
This is the dress I happen to be wearing in the photo above.
Also available in more sizes.
I want everything Nanushka has to offer right now, but especially this skirt.
I love Levi's denim jackets, and this one may be the brand's best one yet.
These are unbelievably flattering on, and the dark green hue is perfect for fall.
A cotton sweater is ideal for transitional weather.
I don't know what I'm waiting for, but I've had my eye on these jeans for months.
I'm patiently waiting for an occasion to wear this fun top.
I usually avoid It sneakers, but these won me over.
A Ganni dress every fashion girl doesn't have (yet)? Sign me up.
I sometimes have to remind myself to wear color in the fall. Enter this emerald sweater.
Summer can go ahead and end if it means I get to wear this cozy jacket.
Loafers are my go-to flats in the fall, and this is the pair I'm already breaking in.
You'll soon find me wearing this with dresses, jeans, and my trusty leopard-print pants.
These pants look amazing on, which is why they constantly sell out.
Bring on the rainy days.
