Fall is coming up soon and that means it is time for pumpkin spice lattes and fall fashions. However, Macon weather can change from day to day and what may seem to be a chilly morning quickly turns into a sweltering afternoon. Here are some guidelines to follow when dressing for fall in Macon.


An easy way to prepare yourself for fall in the South is to layer. What is important here is that if it is cooler in the morning, you can simply remove layers until you are comfortable when it gets warmer in the afternoon. To do this try and start with something simple such as a nice top and light wash jeans then continue to layer with a silk scarf or light jacket. This can prevent you from walking out in a snug sweater when the weather calls for shorts and a tank top.  

Light fabrics

Fall in Macon is very dewy, so heavy fabrics will not bode well on your walk to class. This fall try to wear light, airy fabrics that will keep you cool and are also easy to dress up with accessories or outer layers.

Colors and Patterns

We may not experience traditional fall weather, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear fall colors. Get into the spirit of the season by wearing deep greens, warm oranges and natural browns. These colors are not necessarily too dark to wear on warmer days, so they will definitely be able to keep you cool on a warm day while still giving you a cozy look. This way you can look like you’re dressing for fall even if the weather doesn’t comply.


There are some key fall accessories that are needed to get that comfy fall look without feeling like you’re burning in the Macon sun. Silk scarves, black Panama hats and ankle boots are all good ways to suggest a warm look while keeping you feeling and looking cool.

Macon can be a tough terrain to navigate when the weather shifts so quickly, but you can make it through. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to express your fabulous fall fashions.
