“For spring 2007, look for modern short and floaty dresses. Forget skintight numbers except for formal – the loose style can be slimming as long as you keep the sleeves and length short. Add pretty girly colors and floral patterns for adornment, and try tulip skirts, bell sleeves and little bolero jackets. Keep the slim pants and don’t forget cork or wood heels!” – WL Stylist Lana Orloff.
