From Opening Ceremony to Oscar de la Renta, spring is about new beginnings. It’s the first time in a long time, for many, when we step out of our caves, shed our furs (and leathers), put on our Ray- Bans and relish in the euphoria of fresh cut grass and the sweet taste of lemonade. Spring is a celebration of the old adage “out with the old and in with the new,” and there is no better homage to the season than a novel wardrobe to match:

What does a girl want? Marsala, as rich as her lipstick and as scrumptious as her poultry. She’ll have her sirloin steak and eat it too, medium rare, please.
