Spring-Clean Your Closet

Keep staples like metallic silver that will work for multiple seasons.

Fashion magazines and retailers have thrived for decades on promoting the idea that things are suddenly unwearable within six months. But today, in an age of eco-consciousness, this belief overlooks a lesser promoted universal truth—some things never go out of style. When cleaning out your closet this spring, hone in on what you should keep. Much of the apparel and accessories in spring and fall collections are not just investment pieces for one season, but for at least two, and hopefully much longer.
