The snow is melting (Monday is March, already!), the days are longer, and Philly’s most fashionable boutiques are filling up with hot spring styles

I know it seems a little premature to go shouting around that spring is here — and, looking around outside, I know what you mean. But looking around Philly’s boutiques, well, that tells a different story. When it comes to spring, first come the clothes — then comes the weather.

Spring this year is such a lovely wake-up call after a dark, rough-and-tough rocker fall. Silhouettes are pretty, and more feminine, prints are bold, and color is a main story. To get you started, we scouted for you, and came up with some of our favorite looks. May this make your wallet burn a hole in your pocket as much as it did mine … Happy Spring!
