We don’t really care that there is still a little bit of snow on the ground. And we know the weatherman is predicting a cold week coming up. But ladies and gents, Spring is less than a week away!! So put away your galoshes (or super high, wedge Tory Burch snow boots) and take out your strappy, springy, sexy shoes! Store your Winter coats, sweaters and fur vests in the back of your closets…it is time for Spring!
Now some of you may not rejoice in Spring cleaning the way we do. We love the look of garbage bags filled with clothes to “store”, “donate” and “throw away”. We always talk to our clients about reinventing themselves through fashion and NOW is the time to do just that. Don’t be afraid to get rid of the clothes you haven’t worn in 5 years. Also be brave this season and try new styles and colors. Buy sleek hangers, add new shelves and make your closet your happy place! But before you take a sledgehammer to your wardrobes; here are some Style Duo tips on what to toss and what to keep.

skinny, boyfriend and super flare jeans
black and white geometric prints
soft light leather tops, dresses and shorts

Stella Mcartney faux leather “skin” bags
wearing fancy jumpsuits to events

Safari prints (so 2011!)
