The crisp autumn air is here to stay in Seattle and with it the fall and winter fashion trends. During the fall and winter seasons, Seattle tends to start on a warm and sunny note with an average high of 70 degrees during the month of September. In November, there is an average high of 51 degrees and the weather ends blustery and wet.
Dressing for the fall and winter seasons can be fashionable without all the bulk. Trading an abundance of snow for raining days, Seattle lets you step up your seasonal fashion with layers. Dressing in layers has made a fashion statement within Seattle for many reasons, number one because it’s stylish! Layers have always been a fashion must when it comes to dealing with the crisp autumn air and chilly, raining days. It’s what really gets you into the pre-holiday spirit.
While vacationing in Seattle, be sure to pack for the chilly and rainy seasons. During the fall, a cozy T-shirt covered by an in-season cardigan pairs well with a soft knit cap and your favorite pair of jeans. Because of the rain, packing rain boots can be a hassle so be sure to bring footwear that can stand up to the crunching of leaves and navigating puddles. During the winter, whether you are in the city or going up to the mountains, layering a T-shirt under a sweater combined with your cozy jacket is a must. A soft knit cap, wool socks, your favorite scarf, and gloves are always recommended when you step out of your vacation rental. If you know there is a possibility of snow, be sure to bring traction devices that attach to your shoes to ensure helpful navigation down steep and often icy hills.
Depending on the day, you may be layering your favorite outfits heavier or lighter. To avoid over-packing, choose outfits that easily combine with each other. Pack T-shirts that match with multiple cardigans or your favorite hat and scarf combo that makes the perfect accessory for any outing. By doing this, the fear of over-packing is lessened and it helps you plan your vacation outfits every day of your stay. The best part about layering? Whether it gets too warm or too cold, you can always add more or take away with ease.
