As flowers bloom to a chain reaction, unveiling their delicate petals with splashes of pastels, it is then that spring has commenced. Alluring beauty may behold the face, but a garment presents an inspiring work of art that then sets the trends of society’s fashion-forward season. Houston in springtime sets the precedent. Boots and coats plow back into the depths of the closet while vivid blazers, midi dresses and remarkable spring/summer collections take their place on the rack. As Houstonians prepare for Galveston getaways in emerald-green midi dresses, partake in a denim jean and Ts takeover, get decked out for drinks, or strut through the Post Oak Hotel in cherry-red Versace pumps, it’s clear the city is becoming its own excursion. Manhattan Soho browsing is Highland Village shopping while an unforgettable night in the Hollywood hills is a typical Saturday in Montrose. Houston is a vacation in our own backyard.
