As we welcome the first day of spring (and the unseasonably warm temps it brings with it this year), we'd like to coin a term: spinter. Yes, spinter. Definition: that weird in-between weather period (winter and spring) when people aren't sure what to wear; you'd like to bare your legs in shorts, but because of the chill you still need a jacket.

To help coach you through this confusing middle season, we've compiled a guide on what not to wear right now. We've also included some handy tips on what you should reach for instead.
