Spring wardrobe buying tips

It’s spring, and stores are flinging open their doors, so start your engines.

Get what you need for summer now, but control your spending by asking yourself:

  • Do I love this piece enough for it to be a favorite in my closet?
  • Will I remove an old piece, in trade for the something new?
  • Am I thinking basic replacement, or something trendy?

  • Do I need staples or accessories?

  • Can I rejuvenate my current pieces with jewelry, belt, scarf or shoes?

Take an hour, just you and your closet (and maybe your daughter) to survey your wardrobe. Try on, discard or donate pieces that you didn’t wear last spring or summer. And don’t forget the shoes, handbags, belts and scarves!
