I would like to know, do you ever mix and match spring and fall clothes?

I often like wearing a pink fall fleece over my pink spring polo shirts. I also have a faded red hoodie that I wear over some of my non-pink spring polos.

Yes.


I live in a state where the weather changes all the time. For example, this past Sunday, the day started in the 50's with sunshine, which devolved into cloudy and rainy, which devolved into tornado warning where we were, and then blizzard conditions. (Although St. Louis area avoided the worst of the blizzard.)


I always keep some spring or summer clothes out. You just never know.

yes all the time. most clothes have an expected 'primary' season as I'd call it but they end up getting worn year round, especially with how weather is unpredictable. One day in the fall/winter Dallas I'm wearing short sleeve button ups, chucks, and jeans. and the next day im wearing a sweater, leather boots, a beanie, and a leather jacket. the clothes are never truly put away in other seasons, even if I'm not reaching for them daily.

As a result, I end up mixing a lot of clothes from different seasons on those crossover weather days.

Yes, definitely, as I wear LOTS of long-sleeved tees, which are suitable for spring OR fall, and I also wear a lot of jeans.

While spring and fall are comparable weather-wise, they are significantly different when it comes to the fashion world. Besides color, spring collections usually also encompass summer and are dominated by warm weather clothes, while fall collections usually encompass winter and mostly consist of cold weather clothes.


And actually, in terms of the fashion calendar, spring runs from January-June while Fall runs from July-December, sometimes starting even earlier with some brands. While this may not make sense weather-wise, in the case of spring many people (particularly snowbirds) like to buy their spring clothes early, while the start of the fall fashion season is conveniently timed to align with back-to-school shopping season.

In the PNW, springs are cool and rainy. So there is overlap with lighter weight clothes and heavier jackets and boots.

I wear what is climate appropriate. I don’t think about discrete seasons the way you describe.

But that is the way the fashion calendar operates with most brands. As I stated in my previous post, spring actually runs January-June while fall runs July-December. The reason is that many people like to buy their spring clothes ahead of spring and summer, and buy their fall clothes in time for back-to-school season.

I actually live in the Phoenix area, but most retailers still stock fall collections locally, otherwise stores would have an inventory shortage of spring clothes by the end of the fall fashion season.

Do you operate by a fashion calendar? Not making fun, just wondering....

For Spring 2017 and Spring 2018 I bought my Fairy Tale pink stuff as soon as they were released. In IZOD's case that was November/December for the first batch and February for the second batch. For 2019 I am going to slow down a little due to my stock-ups the past two years (I have recently donated clothes that I no longer wear).
