March is coming to a close, which means Canadians can at last breath a sigh of relief. No more snowstorms. No more shovelling. No more hideous Sorell boots.
Unfortunately, the end of winter also signifies something considerably more tragic: the end of winter fashion. Our bodies' natural instinct to intensely perspire the moment the temperature reaches 5 degrees (thanks, evolution!!!) renders chunky sweaters and the like a warm weather impracticality. And while spring/summer fashions have their own unique appeal about them, there's something to be said for the special way a knit beanie can complete an otherwise mediocre outfit, or how a pair of wool tights can breathe new life into last season's mini skirt (with the added bonus of letting you grow your leg hair out for months at a time. Feminism!)
So, let's celebrate these last few weeks of sub-zero temperatures the only way one should: by frivolously spending money on end-of-season sales. SHE's rounded up 5 items that will have you hankering for gentle flurries--plus, they won't break the bank.
