How to Dress When It’s 60 in the Morning and 80 in the Afternoon


This is probably the worst thing to ever occur — and I mean ever. One minute you’re shivering and the next you’re sweating. I’m sad to say that there is no real cure for this issue. However, there are some things you can do to make the trek back to your, hopefully, air-conditioned room a little bit better.


1. Check the weather

First off, always check the weather report before you leave your dorm or apartment. This can help you plan accordingly. If the weather says super sunny and hot, don’t ignore it! The report might be wrong sometimes, but dress for what your various weather apps say.


2. Layers on layers

Secondly, always wear layers! I’m gonna repeat that one: LAYERS. Layers are our friend. When it’s freezing in the morning my go-to outfit is always leggings, a sweatshirt and a t-shirt or tank top underneath. Therefore, if the temperature starts to shift you can always take off a layer and adjust with the weather.


3. Be prepared

Lastly, be prepared for any awkward weather. If the weather is in the middle, I suggest wearing a sweatshirt and shorts, or a t-shirt and light leggings. With those outfits, you won’t be too hot nor too cold. If I’m wearing leggings, I usually bring a pair of shorts with me in my bag to change if needed — but that’s really extra.

In the end, there’s no perfect way to dress for the weird weather, but these tips should help make it more bearable.
