Some fear change, others embrace it, but we can all agree that the shifts in the seasons can leave our closets a little more than confused. There’s nothing more heart sinking than staring hopelessly at hangers draped with all “wrong” garments.
This irrational fear of what the temperamental transitional weather will bring is real and affects even the strongest and most stylish of us. There is a cure, ladies: there is a way to perfectly curate your closet and make the not so stellar “in between” time much more bearably beautiful!
DO Play HIDE and seek
Investing in a creamy smooth, supple, light leather jacket is not only a timelessly chic way to update your wardrobe, it’s the perfect all year piece that can never be over worn.

DO Get deep
There’s no need to completely press the mute button on all your colors when the weather starts to wither. Pick rich plums and navies, or any jeweltone that pleases your eye.
