Make your wardrobe SPRING to life
But how can you transition--some days it may still be chilly. A pal in Vermont just e'd me that it was snowing again!
Debra Auerbach writes about this on CareerBuilder.
First, lose the wintry blacks and grays. Add a pop of color, advises Elia Mell, author of How to Win at Shopping.
For women this may be a pastel blouse with a suit and for men a colorful pocket square.
Keep the layers. Put a cardigan under your blazer--then if it gets warm, lose the sweater.
Get a trench for outerwear.
Play with prints, Auerbach says. Floral patterns scream spring!
And lighten up your accessories--put a cotton shawl or scarf with your trench and put the wool away.
I find buying a few new items every change of season is also a spirit-lifter.
