Until It's Really Spring

Dear Jeepers:

What's in this week? The weather where I am (Virginia) is very mild. The daffodils are out, the air is warm, but we don't know if we can trust it. Any clothing advice in these confusing times?

Dear Ms. Field,

Well, here in New York today it was suspiciously nice too--mid-sixties, fat blue sky, people "smiling." We spied a woman in a squash-yellow tunic and she looked pretty pleased with herself to have guessed perfectly what to wear. As far as trends go, it seems to be all about short pants or skirts paired with dark tights and flat boots (or cowboy boots). Also, some nice skirts & light colored stockings with pale flats. The Naked Legged, Barefoot Look, without really being either.

In short, buy some stockings, round-toed shoes, and tops in muted colors. The only bright colors we're tolerating this week are squash and red. Top with short leather jacket.

Next week will be a completely different story.*


*Coming soon (really): What to wear in space.
