Last spring colors were a sign of hope that led ready to wear through an optimistic season. Yellows, pastels, and metallics sprouted in every collection. Like the economy that forecasts a decline in revelry, the women of next season dress for little to celebrate. Nudes and beige's are prevalent as models are stripped to the basics. Neutrality is safe, and stresses a need for only the essentials. When I see a woman sporting beige, I think she's being sensible.
