It's time for change. No, not the political rhetoric type. We're talking about wardrobe change. Spring's around the corner so it's time to get your seasonable wardrobe in line. By now you should be asking "How do I dress for spring?" We have a simple answer and it involves color and weight. Start with the obvious approach and think lighter colors. Perk up your shirts with something brighter (think hunter green vs. apple green) and make sure your ties follow suit. When considering pattern, take it a step further and reach for a gingham as opposed to that standard check. By using both color and pattern, you'll compound the effect and be in with the new.

To be out with the cold, take a committed approach and change fabrics altogether. As opposed to wearing the same suits year round, start opting for lighter-weight fabrics for spring and summer. Standard weights range from 8.5-9.5 ounces, while spring and summer weights will be 8 or less. By going lighter in weight, you can go darker in color without looking like you woke up in the wrong season.

Now that's change we can believe in. Oops, there's more of that rhetoric...
