Finding fun new ways to dress up and embrace spring trends — even while you’re stuck at home — can make you feel more confident and productive.
Whether you choose to reinvigorate some older items in your closet or indulge in a little online retail therapy, trying out some of the season’s newest trends can provide a little bit of welcome distraction during a time in which current events can be downright overwhelming.

Now is the time to go into your closet and experiment — to embrace bolder items you previously might not have felt comfortable wearing into the office or the grocery store.
