If the promise of spring has you yearning for new clothes, now is the time to make a fresh start. If it's clean, sleek looks you're after, check out the season's neutral tones, simple shapes and no-frills fashions. If you're ready for something pretty, airy fabrics, floral patterns and even some delicate embroidery will tempt you.
As for the color of the season, look up. Shades of blue -- from pastel to sky -- make a strong showing among the earth tones and brights.
Things are lightening up in menswear as well, prompting even the most conservative gentleman to pair something besides navy with his khakis.
So clear some space in your closet and check out what's new. Spring is here, and there is plenty to look forward to.
Choosing what to wear is a good beginning.
