How to Wear Short-Sleeves Into Fall

I got a fashion question on Twitter last week about how to wear all the cute short-sleeved fall sweaters we see gracing the displays at the mall. Of course, here in Philly it’s still warm and humid, so I’ve been wearing mine as-is, but it’s a good question. As it gets colder, we don’t have to put those adorable short-sleeved sweaters away!

The simple answer is: LAYER.

But I’ve never been one to stop at the simple answer. Ha!

Of course this is as good a chance as any to play around with Polyvore, so here are a couple ideas for layering outfits with short-sleeved sweaters that will take you right into the dead of winter.

Short Sleeved Sweater Outfits for Fall


Got a short sleeved sweater dress? Same concept applies. (I have no idea what that funky thing is on the ankle of those tights. Just pay no nevermind to that!)

For a super casual but chic mom look, layer a short-sleeved tee over a long one.
