One of the most important things to do when picking out your outfit of the day is to check the weather. I often just assumed it was going to be cold or warm and ended up with all the wrong outfits. This won’t be any fun because you will look strange and you’ll be miserably cold or warm, so check the weather!
So, you check the weather but how does that make you prepared? Well you have to plan ahead and be ready to adapt, because sometimes weather abroad can be as strange as Kansas weather.
Take Australia for example. Below is a snapshot of weather in Melbourne, Australia. It’s been nice and warm lately, but sometimes things cool down. Weather in the 80s can change to weather in the low 60s or even 40s very quickly. You can be prepared. Instead of wearing shorts and sandals, swap that out for jeans and leave the sandals at home. Disclaimer: Since Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere, our summer is their winter and vice versa.
Here’s an example of something you can wear for weather similar to that above. Since it’s summer in Australia, you can wear brighter colors and lightweight pieces. Tip: Layer your pieces. One, it’s practical. You can add or shed layers as the weather fluctuates throughout the day. Two, it’s very popular and trendy for girls (and guys) to layer. Throw a cardigan over your button up, throw a scarf on, or add a vest to an outfit. Not only will you be fashionable, you will also be practical.
