Yesterday on our Show and Tell blog, Jenn Wohletz offered up her picks for the five things people shouldn't wear in Denver when it's snowing, and it couldn't have been timelier given our latest spring snowstorm, which followed a brief warm-up. Last year at this time, we came up with our own list of the top ten fashion mistakes when a cold snap follows a heat wave, and it applies to this morning, too. Did someone in your office make one of these errors? Count down our top ten below.

4. Knit face mask. When you overreact like this, locals instantly assume you moved to Colorado from Southern California about ten minutes ago.
