It’s hard to say goodbye to summer. We’d all like the warm weather, long days and fun trips to continue. But let’s face it: fall is almost here.

At least we have some fun fall fashions to look forward to. The autumn is when designers debut their new lines. In the US, many stores hold sales at this time of year to attract back-to-school shoppers hoping to revamp their look.

Plus, cooler weather means more options for things to wear. You’d look pretty silly wearing a cozy scarf, heavy cardigan, or wool blazer in 100 degree heat. Find out what fashions Jeff and Devan are excited about wearing this fall.

难以和夏日说再见。我们喜爱温暖的天气、长长的白天和轻松旅行能一直延续下去。但我们还是接受秋天已经来临的事实吧。

至少我们可以欣喜地期待美丽的秋季时装。设计师会在秋季推出新款服装。在美国,许多商店都会利用每年的这个时候,推出新品,吸引希望焕然一新的返校消费者。

此外,天气转凉意味着可以有更多的服装供你选择。在 100 华氏度(38 摄氏度)的高温下,如果你戴着舒适的围巾、穿着厚重的羊毛衫或者羊毛外套,看起来会显得臃肿。看看杰夫和德凡今年秋天想穿什么衣服。

Jeff:  So Devan, it’s pretty warm out today. Do you ever get that kind of feeling where you’re actually looking forward to the colder weather, like around fall when you get to start wearing different clothes?

Devan:  That’s the main reason I love fall time, is because I just love fall fashion. I like layering, you know, busting out the cardigans and the boots again. I feel like summer fashion is very limiting ‘cause you pretty much live in shorts and tank tops and sandals.

Jeff:  Oh yeah.

Devan:  You can’t mix it up a lot. But in the fall you have colder days and warmer days, so you can wear jackets and long sleeve shirts, button-ups.

Jeff:  You can diversify your wardrobe.

Devan:  Exactly.

Jeff:  Yeah. I usually go all summer without wearing a shirt, so when fall comes around…

Devan:  You bust out the plaid button-up again?

Jeff:  Yeah. I’ve got a couple blazers I like to wear. I’ve got some boots I’d like to have re-soled.

Devan:  Do you like the fall color scheme? Like do you like to wear lots of oranges and reds and browns?

Jeff:  Seems like most people do, but I only wear black, white and grey.

Devan:  All year long, no matter what season it is?

Jeff:  Pretty much. I’m an exception.

Even though it still feels like summer, Devan is looking forward to the fall when she will be able to start wearing her favorite fall fashions. She says that fall fashion is more versatile than summer fashion, when people wear less clothing and don’t layer.

Jeff is also looking forward to the fall because he has some blazers and boots that he’s excited to wear. But he isn’t planning on wearing fall colors like orange, red and brown. He prefers to wear a simple color scheme of black, white and grey regardless of the season.

Which season is your favorite when it comes to fashion? Do you have any new fall clothes that you are excited about wearing?

Fashion is nice and not something that exists in dresses only, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live. I love fashion but I am not the label one, I shop based on what I like not who makes it, just like wear something comfy. Anyway the nice advice that I read about fashion and style, an easy way to transition from summer to fall is by using key pieces like a cardigan and a scarf. A cardigan goes great over maxi dress (@Fashion and Style) wanna try?

My favorite season is spring and i have some new fall clothes that i bought last year. Actually, i buy new clothes when they are on sale. The shops usually get their clothes on sale when the season passes on. so i get some clothes at a reduced price. As a result, i can wear the clothes after one year. i can hardly wait to come another season soon. well.. how about you guys? Do you usually buy new clothes at a marked price, or a reduced price?
