Know what else becomes official around this time? There's practically nothing left in your closet that fits, and faking it is no longer an option. Before you resign yourself to baggy pants and your husband’s sweaters, check out these fashion-savvy hints and wardrobe must-haves to help you look your best during those in-between weeks.
