But when the temperature is 65 degrees one day and 35 degrees the next, as happened recently, it is really nice to be able to access your short-sleeved tops and your warm sweaters with equal ease.
As you make your spring transition this year, I recommend that you spend some time reviewing all of your clothes and getting rid of those that you seldom wear. This will free up space for the items of clothing that will help us through the awkward transitions between seasons. Identify which winter clothes you didn’t wear at all, or wore but didn’t enjoy, as well as the summer clothes that you forgot you had and really aren’t looking forward to wearing. Give those away, and use that empty space to keep more of your off-season clothes accessible.
If your space limitations mean that you can’t keep everything at your fingertips all year round, then store away only the truly seasonal items, and swap the winter items for the summer items when it is clear that the new season is really here to stay.
What clothes are truly seasonal? Shorts, sundresses, sandals come to mind, as do turtlenecks, pullover sweaters, and long underwear. (Even bathing suits can be year-round if you have access to an indoor pool, and tank tops are now popular for layering, even in the winter).
