| Just because winter didn't get the memo that your ready for spring, doesn't mean you can't already start the transition. Layer a button-down under that sunny strapless dress you've been eyeing longingly. Need more warmth? Also layer-in a cropped cape, as shown above, or thin cardi and then tuck! |

| Embellished sunnies had their memorable moment on the runway, but don't go & spend a ton on a passing fad. Just do it yourself, like I did here for our model, Kiki (right). All you need is a glue gun and a little imagination!|
On Joe - Blazer: Tommy Hilfiger. Vest: Stylist's own. Shirt: Lorenzo Uomo. Tie: Vintage.
|Sometimes a sensual pout and flirty lashes say everything he wants to hear.|
|The mixed prints moment hasn't passed. You have the green light to mix with abandon! Here's how to get it right: The print colors should match or echo one another, but the patterns themselves shouldn't be too similar. Mix tight patterns with sparse ones or pair inverse palettes (as shown above).|

| The once prim (if not verdant) tourist has been changed by the heat of the tropics...or is it love? |

|But will it last?|
|Perhaps our young traveller will not be the last to succumb to island's charms?|
