Here are the Here We Are early picks for wardrobe do's this spring and summer 2010:
1. Cardigans are in! Be they long, short, or three-quarter sleeves, they go from a chilly office to versatile travel-wear. Pick one in your favorite color and wear it over a contrasting camisole or white crew-neck tee for a fresh look. Plus, they're easy to pack and look great with skirts or jeans.
2. Silver says summer! Choose from a multitude of silver hoop earrings, bangle bracelets, and necklaces. For work, wear only one piece, but throw it all on for a party. Sparkle, sparke, sparkle!
3. Espadrilles!! Optimal comfort and maximum style. Don't discount these as a rehashed trend, once you wear them you'll know why they keep popping up every season. Pick from ballet flats to the highest of wedges (but only if you can walk in them!). These tootsies come in tons of colors and at all price points...there is sure to be a pair that you must have!
4. Turquoise is tops! Whatever items you end up adding to your wardrobe, be sure that one is in the color turquoise. From the popular stone to a scarf, a touch of this will keep you in style the whole season long. Plus, there is something about this color that makes you feel happy.

Slip these on and you want to sip Pina Colada's on the veranda with your hair gently lifted by the night breeze!
