Are you always looking for something new? Spring 2021 is going to be remembered as a different sort of spring for many reasons. We are emerging from the pandemic slowly, and designers and stores are starting to realize that when you deliever spring clothing in Janaury and February, most customers in the Northern part of the Northern Hemisphere are still living with cold weather, and this year with a lot of snow. This is the first Spring that I am seeing so many garments made from wool and other warm fabrics. Clothing is becoming much more wear now. A smarter attitude. Hopefully one that will continue. What’s looking new this month are camel, caramel and more. The new neutrals. Stores are open and websites are working. If you shop in stores the sales associates are all masked and happy to help you be sleek and chic for 2021. Why not come on a tour of some of the stores in the city. Find shoes and boots that will make you feel like going feet first into the New Year.

Suits in neutrals have been around for decades. Theyn always look good. Maichael Kors wraps his jacket with a patterned belt for waist emphasis.
