What do I wear?

It's hard enough to know what to wear every morning, but with this unseasonably warm weather we are experiencing, it is now more difficult than ever. Here are a few tips that may help you get through this warm, wet "winter" weather.

Do: Wear your new leather gloves. They are stylish, comfortable and too nice to keep in hiding until next season.
Don't: Wear your balaclava. Unless you want to be mistaken for a bank robber. Otherwise, leave it in the bottom of your closet.

Do: Wear layers. No matter what the weather, layering will always be in style. Be creative with your choices but be sure to keep your look polished. Try wearing an embellished tank topped with your favorite blouse and to finish the look add a vest.
Don't: Wear last season's puffy jacket. It is definitely out of style and will add unnecessary bulk to any frame. Not to mention the dreaded sweat factor!

Do: Wear a hat - not to be confused with a tuque or baseball cap. Not everyone looks good in a hat, but no one looks good with frizzy wet hair. There are plenty new styles and colors of hats out there to choose from. Still not convinced? Then don't forget to bring along an umbrella!
Don't: Wear earmuffs. Especially the pink fuzzy kind. Like I said, there are plenty of stylish hats to choose from.

Do: Toss on a pashmina. Not only will this add a punch of color to your wardrobe but is also versatile enough to wear like a scarf with your coat or to wear as an accessory to your work attire.
Don't: Avoid color. Liven up any dreary day with a splash of color. Focus on one piece, like a tank top or a pair of shoes. Don't be afraid to be bold.
