The sundresses, sunglasses and beach hats declare that we are in the
heat of summer. As the season starts to retrograde, the evening hours
bring a hint of chill into the air. With the heat turned up during the
day and the declining temperature creeping into the evening, it is at times difficult being prepared with the late summer wardrobe.
Take the situation of outdoor seating. During the dinner hours, you
of course want to sit outside in the fresh air and watch street
traffic. Unfortunately once it gets to a certain hour and a wind picks
up, you have to make the unfortunate choice of scuttling inside or
grabbing the check and heading home to avoid goosebumps. To circumvent
both of these inopportune situations, the simple addition of a scarf or cardigan would add at least an hour to your enjoyable times in the outdoors.
The purse-ready cardigan is always a good standard —
unfortunately when you extract the cardigan from your purse, it may
look like it was retrieved from the back of your drawer after two
weeks. Note: Humidity and rumpled clothing equals deep wrinkled attire!
Whatever you throw in your bag for shoulder coverage, make sure it is of a slinky fabric such as twill, knit or jersey — avoid cotton or linen unless you have it tightly rolled and wrapped in plastic.
