The same way chefs and spiritual gurus will tell you to eat by the seasons, so too should you dress to the seasons too. Because most of us in Australia congregate in large coastal cities, it is not often possible to really get to know the season when the weather doesn't change drastically. The best way to know the seasons is if you spend some time amongst rural flora and fauna. Last week I really fell in love with my Harris Tweed jacket all over again. For one, it was the appropriate cloth for the colder temperatures and secondly, it blended in so well to the local surrounds. Having the right cloths, textures and colours can make you appear so much more in tune with your world. I am learning this more and more, especially when you spend more time in the country.
