Before we start swiping those credit cards and making our bank accounts ache, we should keep in mind that we still have quite a few viable outfits from last year. So why not recycle?

Seated at the five-star establishment where we were dining, I looked around at all the other women in the room who had clearly made a similar effort. Nice work, ladies. And then my eyes wandered to the boys, I mean men, in the room. There were sweatshirts everywhere. Too-long pants sitting below the butt crack, scuffed sneakers, and yes, baseball caps. Some even turned off-centre.

It's no secret that I have built my wardrobe on renewed and renewable staples and a mostly monochromatic palette.

So what's on my radar for Spring?
