Next month marks two things, New York Fashion Week and the time when many Spring 2018 fashions begin hitting retail stores. But while February is the “month of fashion”, January is that unpredictable transition month. The first few months of a new year always brings up one issue – do you shop the sales and leftover items on markdown or do you think (and shop) ahead for Spring items. With the crazy weather conditions during the first three months of the year – what is a fashionista to do? Why not let NYC Upper East Side boutique Madonna & Co help you with this difficult fashion decision! Madonna & Co have come up with a cheat sheet of the best finds and fashion essentials for this interim period (a period they like to call – “the 5th Season”.)
