Nothing beats down the soul like Winter. When it hits as hard and lasts as long as this one has, tweed pants yield to snow pants, coats morph into parkas and dress boots give way to rubber. Even the most ardent sartorial ambition is drowned in the drudgery of slush puddles and black ice. But when the sun finally peaks through and the grass begins to peek through, even the longest winter turns to Spring. Shake off the doldrums, get ready and make sure your Spring and Summer wardrobe is bursting with the color and flavor to enjoy the thaw!
