| Cardigans keep your arms warm.
Your arms are going to get cold. There is no way around this. But to keep your dress or a pretty shirt visible while staying warm, throw on a cardigan. There are plenty of different styles, too—three-quarter length sleeved, long-sleeved, fitted and flattering, loose and swishy, with or without buttons, full length or cropped; the possibilities are nearly endless, but they all have one thing in common: they'll keep your arms from freezing off.
| Scarves are great for livening up solid-colored shirts and outfits.
Scarves are great for perking up a plain shirt—you can get either just-for-looks scarves, or you can get ones that will keep your neck warm that you can carry through to winter. Whichever you choose, tying on a scarf around your neck instantly cold-weatherizes your outfit.
| Tights come in a wide variety of colors.
These are great for covering up your legs. You can still wear your dresses and skirts, but now, put on some tights to keep your legs from the chilly wind. Like cardigans, tights are highly adaptable—from sheer to opaque, from thin to sweater-lined (and ladies, if you haven't ever worn sweater tights in the dead of winter, you are missing out!), and from neutral to neon.
| Boots are the perfect fall footwear.
Summertime is all about wearing flats and sandals, and while they're great for hot weather, there's not much worse than wearing flats when it's cold-raining on you. Your feet get wet in two seconds and then you're cold the rest of the day. Buy some boots. They don't need to be heeled boots (in fact, we don't understand heeled boots much, especially high-heeled winter boots, but that's another story), but the extra fabric covering your leg is perfect over jeans or, you guessed it, over tights.
