Here's What to Wear When It's 70 Degrees

Sure, it's nearly fall, but that doesn't mean the weather is always spot-on in terms of predictability. Rather than looking to the cool days of boots and thick sweaters that the season traditionally calls to mind, we're still left wondering what to wear in 70-degree weather. 

Fortunately, fashion people offers some ideas when it comes to fresh outfit ideas. Rather than pulling out the same linen dresses and eyelet tops they've been wearing since forever, It girls opt for richer textures, bolder colors, and more put-together ensembles, taking some of the tenets of timeless fashion and tweaking them for changing weather.

And for those of you who live in California or another region where temperatures tend to stay pretty consistent year-round, consider this an all-season guide. Below, see 11 outfit ideas to try now, and shop cropped denim and pretty tops to wear now and layer later.
