Spring represents new life and that’s including your wardrobe. Spring is the transitional season when you pack up all your heavy sweaters, coats, and gloves to make room for your spring/summer wardrobe. As soon as that first nice spring day hits you may want to toss your outerwear in storage, but sadly that may be a bit premature. Spring also brings unpredictable weather that can be sunny one day, rainy the next, or just downright cloudy and cold.
