    Before you set your closet on fire, we're not here to recommend starting anew, sartorially, we mean. While it may be difficult for us hoi polloi to buy a completely brand-new wardrobe each season (though we fantasize about it each Fashion Week…), it's far from impossible to inject a little spice into what you're already working with.
